Amber, herbaceous, camphorated, floral, animal.

The scent of clary sage evokes an interesting duality that is both animalic and herbaceous. Floral facets caress aromatic scents while rich undertones of camphor permeate. A warm, amber-like note reminiscent of fresh tobacco lingers.

Production

Clary sage is native to southern Europe and grows across France, Central Europe, Russia, the United States and China. It’s decidedly fragrant and thus cherished for its enticing olfactory qualities. The plant itself tends to grow from anywhere between 40 cm to 160 cm tall. Its upper stems have hair glands that contain odiferous substances, from which essential oil is produced. Clary sage essence is obtained through steam distillation, while a concrete and an absolute are obtained through extraction with a solvent.

History

From the Latin “salvus,” meaning “healthy,” clary sage has been known to us since prehistoric times. Cherished for its ability to preserve health and prolong life, its medicinal properties were identified well before its olfactory benefits. During the 17th century, the Chinese used to barter one crate of sage leaves for three crates of China tea.
Clary sage has a number of health benefits, including anti-inflammatory properties. It is used to combat asthma, cramps, depression, migraines, infections, acne and even hair loss. Its scent is thought to have an effect on one’s stamina, as well as promote feelings of resistance through perseverance.
