With its mellow, warm, herbal scent, this Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ essential oil can be used in massage or applied directly to the reflexology points on the feet. Clary sage essential oil also contains high levels of an ester called linalyl acetate, a compound that is considered balancing to the nervous system.* In addition to its balancing properties, clary sage strengthens and tones skin and may make you look and feel younger.* Recent medical data indicates that it naturally raises estrogen and progesterone levels.

Bad Science and the Truth

Many aromatherapy books claim that essential oils, such as clary sage, fennel, sage, and bergamot, can trigger an abortion. Several years ago, a rumor circulated about a laboratory research project in which the uterus of a rat was turned inside out and a cold drop of clary sage oil was applied to the exposed uterine wall. When this caused a contraction of the muscle, clary sage was labeled as abortion-causing.

One must ask, what would have happened if cold water had been dropped on the exposed uterus? The uterine wall would likely have contracted in response. Following this reasoning, water could be labeled as abortion-causing as well.

The truth is that to our knowledge, there has never been a single documented case that clary sage, lemon, sage, or bergamot essential oils have caused an abortion. Sclareol, a compound in clary sage, is not an estrogen, although it can mimic estrogen if there is an estrogen deficiency. If there is not an estrogen deficiency, sclareol will not create more estrogen in the body. As a rule, essential oils bring balance to the human body.
