He also says that Clary Sage Oil remains important for women during childbirth and menopause.
This popular oil teaches spasms
From a scientific point of view, the benefits of Clary Sage are largely due to two ingredients that help calm muscle cramps:
Both Linalool and linalyl acetate can calm cramps individually. And when they appear side by side (as in Clary Sage!), They reinforce each other’s effects. We call that work in Solidarity.
This is an inotropic oil recipe with Clary Sage and three other popular oils for cramps: Roman chamomile, catnip, and bergamot. (Bergamot also has linalool-linalyl acetate synergy!)

Make this mixture in a 1 oz (30 ml) bottle.
Mix jojoba and essential oils in the bottle, and shake gently to mix all ingredients. Massage it into your stomach as needed when you have cramps.
About the other oils in this spasmolytic recipe
Linalool and linalyl acetate aren’t the only natural ingredients that can calm cramps. So I combined the recipe with a few other oils for contractions to take relief to the next level!
Catnip essential oil
Catnip Contains oil Nibitalactone, That can calm your mind and body as one. (The calmer your mind, the more stress your body will give up.) This is why catnip is often included in anxiety-relieving recipes.
Neptalactones have also been shown to reduce inflammation, which means they can help soothe pain.
Roman chamomile essential oil
Roman chamomile Traditional and popular oil for cramps!
It is rich Esters A chemical family of molecules that can release muscle tension and calm spasms. I like to use Roman chamomile in any belly mixture. She has a knack for relieving everything from cramps, to nausea, to indigestion. If your belly needs support often, Roman chamomile can become a good friend of yours.
NB: German chamomile is not always considered a substitute for Roman chamomile. The two oils are completely different. Learn about their differences.
