Salvia Sclarea

* An essential oil * Also known as Clary or Clary Sage

Salvia Sclarea is an herb native throughout Europe and east and central Asia, and used as a fragrance ingredient in cosmetics and personal care products because of its spicy or "hay-like" odor. It is also thought to reduce excess oil or dandruff on the scalp from excessively oily complexions. This is most likely due to the mucilage formed from Salvia Sclarea seeds, which were historically used to remove eye irritants, but are known to bond to small particles, allowing them to be whisked away (SusunWeed.com). It is also known to have antiseptic, antispasmodic, astringent, and bactericidal properties. Salvia Sclarea was historically used as a flavoring, and was found in beers and ales; it is also used to flavor wine and tobacco products, according to Wikipedia.
