what does sage essential oil do

The clary sage plant seeds are rich in mucilage; therefore, they have been used to remove foreign bodies from the eye conjunctiva. Mucilage absorbs water as if it was sponges, due to its osmotic powers. When putting a clary sage seed under the eyelid, the seed swells, soaking water and withdrawing any foreign body which could exist in the eye conjunctiva.

How to use Clary Sage

  1. Infusion with 15-20 g of plants per liter of water. Drink up to five cups daily.
