SLOVENIA. Sage (Salvia officinalis) Essential Oil, Steam Distilled
Sage essential oil has a distinctive scent that is described as fresh, herbaceous, and camphoraceous. It is considered a top note for blending purposes.
Sage essential oil has antifungal, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antispasmodic properties. Its antioxidant effects may play a role in helping numerous chronic conditions including diabetes and Alzheimer's disease. In aromatherapy, Sage is recognized for fostering alertness and clarity, and for helping to regulate the digestive and respiratory systems, reducing the signs of aging on skin, and aiding hormonal balance.
Our essential oils are sold in amber glass bottles with a dropper orifice for drop-by-drop administration. Do not ingest essential oils unless under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner or experienced aromatherapist. Essential oils should always be diluted in a carrier oil before being applied to the skin. (Some examples of carrier oils: Jojoba, Sunflower, Grapeseed, Rosehip Seed, Castor, and Avocado; gently liquified Coconut Oil, Shea, or Cocoa Butter can also work for creating thicker body care products.) Always test the diluted essential oil on a small patch of skin before applying more widely.
Maximum recommended dilution for adults: .4% (one drop per two teaspoons of carrier oil). Sage essential oil is best avoided during pregnancy and lactation.
