Clary Sage Essential Oil Functions
Functions: 

- Relieves Menstrual Discomfort
Clary sage works to regulate the menstrual cycle by balancing hormone levels naturally and stimulating the opening of an obstructed system. It has the power to cure symptoms of PMS as well, including bloating, cramps, mood swings and food cravings. Clary sage is also antispasmodic, meaning it treats spasms and related issues such as muscle cramps, headaches and stomachaches. It does this by relaxing the nerve impulses that we can’t control.
 
- Supports Hormonal Balance
Clary sage affects the hormones of the body because it contains natural phytoestrogens, which are referred to as “dietary estrogens” that are derived from plants and not within the endocrine system. These phytoestrogens give clary sage the ability to cause estrogenic effects. It regulates estrogen levels and ensures the long-term health of the uterus — reducing the chances of uterine and ovarian cancer.  Also helpful to the female reproductive system. It is a good oil to the uterus and hormones and is used to treat female infertility.

Cholesterol travels in the lipids (fatty acids) of the bloodstream, which is also called plaque, and can build up in the walls of the arteries. This decreases the flow of blood to vital areas of the body, and if the plaque continues to build, it significantly increases the risk of having a heart attack or stroke. the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of clary sage oil are cardio-protective and help lower cholesterol naturally.
