Sage - Aromatheraphy Essentail Oil
(Salvia Officinalis)

SAGEThere are several varieties of sage. A member of the mint family, sage can contain up to 50% ketone and so generally is not recommended for internal use. It is instead recommended to use clary sage internally because it has many of the same properties without the toxicity. Used externally, sage has very strong estrogenic properties and can be helpful with hot flashes, water retention, gum infections, and the prevention of wrinkles. It is used to stop the progression of gray hair. It can cause vertigo if it is inhaled to excess.
