Salvia Sclarea (Clary) Oil
Clary (Salvia sclarea) is a herbaceous plant native to the northern Mediterranean, and related to the common sage (Salvia officinalis). Typically growing around a meter tall, plants have pale fragrant flowers supported by purple or lilac bases (bracts). The essential oil is produced by steam distilling the flowers and flowering tips, and is used in perfumery and aromatherapy.
