Clary Sage is a Spanish flowering herb that can be distilled to produce a sweet and nutty essential oil. The oil comes from the purple flowers and the leaves of the plant and is often used as an antiseptic, a holistic treatment for the kidneys and the stomach, and a calming agent for anxiety and nervousness. It has actually been known to create a kind of light-headed euphoric feeling, which is why it should be avoided when pregnant.
In small quantities, clary sage is also commonly used in women's fragrances and bath and body products. Lisa Hoffman likes it so much that she named one of her Variations scents after the plant.
