Native to the Northern Mediterranean basin, Salvia Sclarea is a short-lived herbaceous plant that prefers high temperatures and produces beautiful, fragrant flowers. The flowers and leaves of the plant possess strong medicinal abilities and have a wide variety of use in aromatherapy and traditional medicines. Its name Clary originated from the Latin word ‘Clarus,’ which means clarifying or cleansing. The essential oil derived from the leaves and buds of the oil is very popular for its ability to soothe skin and balance emotions. The oil’s positive effects on mood and the ability to help with hormonal issues faced by women make this essential oil one of a kind.
Ecodrop’s Clary Sage essential oil is extracted from flowers and leaves of Salvia Sclarea herb, sourced from organic plantations in France, and certified organic by the UK Soil Association. Fresh flowers and leaves are steam distilled to extract the oil, which has a thin consistency, pale-yellow colour, and a sharp herbal fragrance.

Skincare: Clary Sage is an all-in-one solution for all kinds of skin problems and is well-suited to all types of skin. It soothes acne, rashes, boils, and provides a clear, glowing complexion. Its cleansing property keeps the pores free from chemical build-up and also tightens skin pores, thus preventing blackheads and clogging.
Haircare: The incredibly nutritious Clary Sage oil supports the health of scalp and hair and repairs environmental damages. It reduces hair fall by addressing almost all kinds of underlying issues, such as stress, chemical build-up on the scalp, dryness, bacterial infections, flakiness, and lack of adequate hydration.
