The Use of Clary Sage Essential Oil for Cramps

Clary Sage Information Title Block

FROM KAREN WILLIAMS: "Linalool and linalyl acetate can each calm spasms individually. And when they show up side by side (like in Clary Sage!), they enhance one another’s effects. We call that working in synergy. This is a cramp oil recipe with Clary Sage and three other popular oils for cramps: Roman Chamomile, Catnip and Bergamot. (Bergamot also features the linalool-linalyl acetate synergy!)"

EXCERPT FROM ORIGINAL POST:

Clary Sage is a popular oil for cramps among women.

In The Complete Guide to Aromatherapy, author Salvatore Battaglia writes:

“Clary sage is one of the most important essential oils as a women’s remedy . . . Clary sage is renowned for the relief it brings to menstrual cramps because of its spasmolytic and analgesic action on the womb.”

He also says that Clary Sage oil remains important for women during childbirth and menopause.

The science of this popular oil for cramps

From a scientific standpoint, Clary Sage’s benefits are largely due to two components that help calm muscle spasms:

  • Linalool
  • Linalyl acetate

Linalool and linalyl acetate can each calm spasms individually. And when they show up side by side (like in Clary Sage!), they enhance one another’s effects. We call that working in synergy.
This is a cramp oil recipe with Clary Sage and three other popular oils for cramps: Roman Chamomile, Catnip and Bergamot. (Bergamot also features the linalool-linalyl acetate synergy!)
