For the third article that focuses on essential oils for mental health, I continue with discussing the brain enhancing properties of sage essential oil. Sage oil has impressive evidence in experimental studies to modulate the neurotransmitter acetylcholine for enhancing memory. It has also been validated for this effect in humans.
In this latest post, I go into more detail on several studies that demonstrate how the two most available sage oil species, Common sage and Spanish sage, have been shown in clinical trials to positively influence the mind, cognition, and mood. I also discuss doses used in these studies and translate this to practical tips and safe usage for the consumer.
Make sure to check with your doctor and become educated about essential oil safety prior to implementing any into your wellness routine. I have many resources listed on my website.

Disclaimer: This information is applicable ONLY for therapeutic quality essential oils. This information DOES NOT apply to essential oils that have not been tested for purity and standardized constituents. There is no quality control in the United States, and oils labeled as “100% pure” need only to contain 5% of the actual oil. The rest of the bottle can be filled with fillers and sometimes toxic ingredients that can irritate the skin. The studies are not based solely on a specific brand of an essential oil, unless stated. Please read the full study for more information.
