Clary Sage Essential Oil

The use of Clary Sage during labour dates back centuries!

Clary sage oil is a natural uterotonic, meaning it improves the effectiveness of contractions during labour. Furthermore, it induces relaxation during labour by soothing the nervous system, providing a feeling of comfort and calmness throughout the birthing journey.

Due to its ability to cause uterine contractions, it can also assist in the birth of the placenta and reduce the potential for post-partum haemorrhage (excessive bleeding).

Clary sage is known for its potential to help induce labour. It's believed that inhaling clary sage essential oil or using it in massage during late pregnancy may trigger the release of oxytocin, the hormone responsible for initiating labour contractions. Clary sage should therefore only be used once you have reached your due date.

As with all essential oils, quality is paramount. Christchurch-based, Zurma Botanical Oil Studio take pride in sourcing only the finest Clary Sage essential oil, ensuring its purity and potency. Their commitment to authenticity means you can trust that each drop of their Clary Sage oil captures the true essence of this remarkable plant, bringing you nature's goodness, one drop at a time.



There are a number of ways you can use clary sage during childbirth:

  • Put 2 drops on a dry cloth or flannel and inhale.
  • Mix 2 drops of clary sage with 1 teaspoon of a carrier oil such as coconut oil, jojoba oil or olive oil, and massage gently around your abdomen area, including hips, pelvis and lower back. You can also apply it to your feet and palms.
  • Put 2 drops on a cotton ball and put under your pillow or near where you are labouring.
  • Mix 2 drops of clary sage with 1 teaspoon of a carrier oil such as coconut oil, jojoba oil or olive oil, and massage gently on acupressure points including your inner ankle or centre of feet soles.

Safety Guidelines:

  • Always consult your midwife before using essential oils during pregnancy or childbirth.
  • As clary sage oil induces contractions of the uterus, it should only be used when you have reached your due date.
  • Do not apply the oil directly onto your skin without using a carrier oil.
