Application and Use
Generally Clary Sage is non-toxic and a non-irritant. Even though considered useful with promoting menses, it is considered safe to use when pregnant in small doses. Consultation with a physician is always recommended with internal use. Clary Sage has a different chemical composition to that of common Sage (Salvia officinalis). Common Sage is composed of up to 50% thujone, a potentially toxic ketone. Please ensure that therapeutic use is always with Salvia scarea. Also note that overuse of Clary Sage can result in headache or dizziness, and raise blood pressure, rather than its opposite effect in proper dosages. Your body will usually let you know when you've had too much of any oil - as soon as you don't seem to 'want' any more, cease use until the aroma is desirable again.
