Description Briscoe's Tips

Salvia sclarea

A valued medicinal, culinary and ornamental herb, Clary Sage makes a great companion to any garden.

Derived from the Ancient Roman word "claurus" meaning "clear", Clary Sage seeds were once used to remove harmful irritants from eyes by boiling them to create an eyewash. Due to its antispasmodic, antidepressant and estrogen enhancing properties it was also recommended in tea form to women suffering from menstrual and menopausal problems. Today Clary Sage is generally used to aid digestion and bloating.

Because Clary Sage can enhance drunkenness and create a more profound narcotic effect, it was once used to replace hops in beer to increase its potency.

The leaves of the Clary Sage can be used in salads, while the tops are used in soups, jellies and omelets to lend a sweet fragrant flavor.

yay clary sage! October 4, 2016
Reviewer: daniel briere from north scituate, RI United States  
I looked for this plant for a while and found seeds for sale but few reputable growers actually offering this old fashioned favorite. Arrived in amazing shape! Huge plant for the pot size, and has grown tremendously this spring. Already using leaves, and also propagated some cuttings, this is after a few short weeks of growth this spring

Two Plants In Under Two Weeks! April 7, 2015
Reviewer: Rachel Burns from Fort Campbell, KY United States  
This thing arrived in fine condition and has grown so rapidly that I already have a second plant ready to separate from it with so much new growth flying out the sides!

Purchased 4 great plants May 30, 2014
Reviewer: M. Grant from Northern VT, United States  
Plants were quite large. They suffered a little from shipping, one was slightly damaged.  A few days in the sun and they perked back up without any problems.  Planted them after their "re-awakening stage" and they are growing very nicely now.  Really excited to add these into my herbal homebrew. This was my second purchase from The Growers Exchange, they always offer great plants!
