Two nights ago I had really bad period pain. I applied approximately 5 drops of Clary Sage essential oil to my abdomen in circular motions. I repeated this a few times in the evening, roughly 15 minutes apart, and I found that the pain eased and I could finally rest.
Clary Sage is widely used by women to soothe monthly discomfort associated with menstrual cycles. It is also used to help soothe and lighten tension and mood.
