While Clary Sage is said to help prevent/cover gray hair with consistent use, some new studies come to say more about it!
When I first knew about the gray hair thing I ran to buy a bottle. As I have a stubborn gray lock of hair I wont judge the effect of Clary Sage on that cos for me it did nothing. I did not though limit myself to that. For studies have showed lots of other uses for us, women, such as menopause symptoms, menstrual pain, hair loss, anxiety, and much more. In other words, Clary Sage is one of the best natural remedies for hormonal imbalance.
Clary Sage Essential Oil can be used topically and can also be inhaled. For topical use, go with the 2% dilution by following this recipe:
In a 10ml bottle, add 6 drops clary sage essential oil and top up with a carrier oil.
I use sunflower seed oil for massage purposes which is one here. Shake the bottle vigorously.
Apply like 1/2 tsp on your abdomen and massage gently clockwise until the oil is absorbed in skin.

Essential oil disclaimer: This recipe uses what are generally considered safe essential oils, but please keep in mind that while completely natural, all essential oils are powerful plant compounds that you and your family (including your pets) might have a reaction to. Never use essential oils undiluted or take essential oils internally (diluted or undiluted) without the guidance of a professional, and always read up about the possible side effects of each type of oil before you use it. Avoid the use of essential oils (diluted or undiluted) during the first trimester of pregnancy, on small babies, and on anyone with severe allergies to the plants the oils are derived from. And if you see any reactions in yourself, your family, or your pets, stop use of your essential oil products immediately and contact a medical professional.
When using essential oils, be careful and read the instructions on the label. Misusing essential oils could be harmful.
The topical application of essential oils may prove to be extra beneficial because the transdermal properties of the oil permeate your skin and enter your bloodstream faster. Your olfactory nerve receptors also sense the smell and send signals to your brain.
However, before topical application, you should patch test oils on your skin by rubbing a small drop on the inside of your wrist and letting it sit for 24 hours. If there is no reaction within this time, the essential oil may be safe for you to use. Patch test essential oils every time before using them on children. We do not recommend using essential oils on babies younger than one-year-old.
