According to Ayurvedic Medicine, an ancient system of healing practiced in India, sweet aromas such as Clary Sage are used to regulate and pacify both Vata and Pitta imbalances. Symptoms of Vata imbalance are premenstrual syndrome, insomnia, nervousness and anxiety or worry. Symptoms of Pitta imbalance include feelings of frustration and anger, tendency to emotional upset and over reaction, high blood pressure and an inability to relax and go with the flow.
CAUTION: As Clary Sage can make some people feel exceedingly woozy and faint please avoid using it with alcohol, or when driving or needing to focus. Because of its hormonal effects avoid Clary Sage during pregnancy, or when nursing unless under the direct supervision of a qualified professional aromatherapist. Due to its estrogen-like effect it may cause complications with conditions sensitive to estrogen.
