Clary Sage Hydrosol

I love the aroma of Clary Sage Essential Oil. Though the aroma is a bit different, I equally love the aroma of the hydrosol. Suzanne Catty describes the hydrosol to have a note similar to Earl Grey tea, and I agree. I find it pleasant and especially wonderful when blended with other hydrosols.

Botanical Name

Salvia sclaria

Aromatic Strength

Medium

Shelf Life

Up to 2 years if stored properly (refrigeration is recommended).

Reported Properties, Uses and Applications

Suzanne Catty states that Clary Sage Hydrosol is astringent and is mildly antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory. She reports that it may be helpful in easing the "hormone-related cramps, bloating and water retention, moodiness and other symptoms of PMS." Emotionally, Catty states that Clary Sage Hydrosol acts as an anti-depressant and may be useful for traumas and heartache. It may also act as an aphrodisiac. [Suzanne Catty, Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy (Rochester, VT: Healing Arts Press, 2001), 129.]

Len and Shirley Price report that the Clary Sage Hydrosol that they analyzed consists of 11-49% alcohols and 3-76% esters (these ranges do not include the water present in the hydrosol) and possesses the following properties: "anti-fungal, anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, antiviral, bactericidal, balancing (to nervous system), calming, cicatrizant, decongestant, stimulating, uplifting." [Len Price and Shirley Price, Understanding Hydrolats: The Specific Hydrosols for Aromatherapy: A Guide for Health Professionals (London: Churchill Livingstone, 2004), 140.]

Jeanne Rose adds that Clary Sage Hydrosol is astringent and is useful for oily skin, PMS, hot flashes, drug withdrawal and is energizing. [Jeanne Rose, 375 Essential Oils and Hydrosols (Berkeley, CA: Frog, Ltd, 1999), 172.]
