History books tell us that sage essential oil benefits have long been considered good for the body and the mind. While it is often compared to clary sage (Salvia sclarea), both do come from the same evergreen shrub family, but are very different from each other.

Both essential oils have a yellow-green color, but sage has a strong, spicy scent, while clary sage has a sweet, nutty aroma. Because sage essential oil may be considered strong, clary sage oil is often used as a substitute in many spa or salon businesses, for it's lighter, milder aromatic properties.
