“Clary sage” received its name from the Latin “clarus sclera” meaning “clear eyes,” due to widespread use of the plant to remove debris from the eyes (this was probably a big deal for gladiators, or whatever). Like all varieties of sage, it has been used historically as a cure-all for just about everything that could possibly be wrong with you, but was rumored to be particularly effective for “women’s problems.” This was the Middle Age European’s nice way of saying “general bitchiness.”
While some have claimed clary sage may mimic the effects of estrogen, there is no scientific evidence to suggest this is the case. But this doesn’t mean the jury’s out on the benefits of clary sage. One study found that a massage with a blend of clary sage, lavender, and rose essential oils was more effective at relieving menstrual cramps than an unscented massage, suggesting the essential oils may have helped independently of the massage itself.* In another study, smelling clary sage oil was found to relieve depression in menopausal women.* Finally, the largest study ever conducted on aromatherapy in a medical environment found clary sage and chamomile effectively relieve pain during childbirth.*
There’s hope for your inner bitch yet.
