At Young Living, we love all our essential oils, whether they’re floral, herbaceous, citrusy, or woody in their aroma. However, from time to time, we come across oils that are so fabulously versatile that we can’t help but count them as firm favourites. Our Sage essential oil and Clary Sage oil fall perfectly into this category! Despite sharing similar names and coming from the same shrub family, their scents are entirely individual, and their benefits are plentiful.
In this blog, we’ll be walking you through the key differences between Sage and Clary Sage essential oils before showcasing some of our most beloved Sage-infused products, helping you get to grips with the benefits of these deeply soothing and enticing oils.
What’s the difference between Sage and Clary Sage essential oils?
While their names would suggest they are similar, Sage essential oil and Clary Sage carry significant differences – so we like to think of them more like ‘second cousins’ than ‘siblings’ within the oil world. While Sage is strong, spicy, and clarifying, Clary Sage is gentle and soothing with a sweet, floral fragrance.
Sage Essential Oil: A Saving Grace
Renowned for its bold aroma and cleansing properties, Sage essential oil is a great oil to use during spiritual rituals and massages or simply for inhalation during trying times. For the ultimate oil experience, try combining Sage with oils such as Dragon Time essential oil before applying to your neck and shoulders – a blend that will leave you feeling motivated, positive, and powerful.
Clary Sage Essential Oil: Silky Soft Skin
If you enjoy introducing essential oils into your beauty routine, Clary Sage oil deserves a place in your Young Living collection. Whether you’ve been fighting the frizz and are looking for some deep conditioning, have been in search of an oil that’ll combine with Epsom salts to create the spa-like bathing experience of your dreams, or want a soothing and calming oil that you can add to a bedtime body butter for silky-soft skin come the morning, Clary Sage is the one for you. We also love combining it with oils including Lavender and Geranium to make a gorgeously floral perfume!
