Clary Sage Myths Proved Untrue
Unfortunately, there have been many false myths attributed to clary sage essential oil. For years it was thought and taught that clary sage caused abortions. This belief turned out to be totally false and based on an incorrectly reported study. Yet, this myth was passed on from instructor to student so ardently and so frequently that it was accepted and defended without question.
It’s a relief that the truth about this wonderfully useful, yet badly misaligned essential oil is finally coming to light. Please note that Robert Tisserand, author of “Essential Oil Safety,” does not indicate any special precautions when using this oil because none are necessary.
