Clary sage or Salvia sclarea is a herbaceous perennial plant native to the northern Mediterranean region.

Clary sage oil is called "women's oil" because it has historically been associated with various benefits for women's health, particularly related to reproductive and hormonal issues.


Clary sage oil contains a compound called Linalyl Acetate. This compound has calming and soothing properties, making it useful for reducing stress, anxiety, and tension. It also possesses antispasmodic effects, which can help alleviate muscle cramps and spasms, including those associated with menstrual pain.


Its antispasmodic and hormone-regulating properties make it beneficial for women experiencing menstrual pain or hormonal imbalances.


Clary sage is the oldest known natural remedy for PMS and menopause.


Sclareol in clary sage oil is believed to have hormone-regulating properties, making it useful for addressing hormonal imbalances, especially in women. It may help alleviate symptoms of PMS (premenstrual syndrome) and menopause, such as mood swings and hot flashes.


One study calls Clary sage oil, a ‘gift to the female’ and concludes that it has a restoring effect in premenstrual syndrome (PMS).

Clary sage aromatherapy as a potential therapeutic modality, is attributable to the improvement of physiological, psychological and behavioural symptoms. This study further implies that Clary sage helps to relieve premenstrual symptoms, and ultimately, support the mind and body health of women.

Another study says that:


Clary sage oil has been reported to effectively relieve menstrual cramps, regulate the menstrual cycle [10,11], and improve symptoms (including hot flashes and night sweats) in menopausal women [15] because of its estrogen-like components and ester ingredients.
