Blending with Clary Sage

Clary Sage can be a polarizing scent - you either love it or hate it.  With blending though, it doesn’t matter as much as we can add other more pleasant aromas to mask the smell if you dislike it. We, of course, love Clary Sage for its physical and metaphysical properties, and that is why we would still use it even if we didn’t like it.  If you’re not a fan, try these blend ideas. Play with the number of drops, dropping Clary Sage to one drop and upping the others. 

I hope you enjoy these blending suggestions. I enjoy creating them for myself, and then sharing them with you.

Clear Thoughts

Does your mind work overtime, thinking through the endless possibilities and scenarios? Mine certainly does, well it did until I started to diffuse this blend. It helped to reduce that mental mind chatter, and gave me clarity in my thoughts. 


How to Use

Add to your ultrasonic diffuser or oil burner in a well-ventilated area for short periods. It is recommended that you use your diffuser on the intermittent setting, or for 30 minutes on, 60 minutes off.

Safety: This blend is created specifically for diffuser use only. 

Give Me Optimism

Some days the challenge of balancing work and home life can be daunting. Sometimes we need a spark of optimism to give us hope. That’s why I came up with this blend - to help give me that bit of optimism for the future. I mean, I am generally a positive upbeat person, but some days, it gets too much, and that is when this blend comes in handy.

Power Woman

Like you, I am a wise woman. But some days I forget that. I forget to tap into my own innate wisdom, and tap into the powerhouse of all that is me. This is the purpose behind this blend - to help you really tap into all that wisdom. Whilst I call it Wise Woman, anyone can use it and help them too.

As stated earlier, Clary Sage can be a polarizing scent so play with the ratios of oils in these suggestions. What is also interesting is that one day you may not like the smell of an essential oil, but the next day you do. So don’t dismiss any oil altogether, as you may find it pleasant and useful one day soon.
