  • Avoid with barbiturates. Some evidence suggests that clary sage may increase the sedating effects of barbiturates like hexobarbital.
  • Women using hormone replacement therapy- consult with a physician before using. Some studies suggest clary sage may possibly increase the action of estrogen-replacement drugs.

GENERAL

As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier oil).
