Clary Sage is a short biennial or perennial herb that grows up to 1 meter in height (approximately 3 feet). It has large, hairy leaves with small bluish-purple flowers. The name is derived from the Latin word ‘Claris’ for 'Clear', and by the Middle Ages it was known as ‘Oculus Christi,’ or the ‘Eye of Christ.’ During the sixteenth century, it was used in England as a replacement for Hops when brewing beer. Clary Sage Organic Essential Oil can be diffused to create a peaceful atmosphere. It is also used in formulating natural perfumes.
