This is the fifth video in my series to support mental health from an integrative health perspective. This is the second video that focuses on both experimental and clinically validated essential oils. Click here for a summary of earlier subjects.
In my first video that highlights essential oils that shine in human trials, I reviewed the brain benefits of lavender oil. Now, I “wisely” move onto the second essential oil that also has impressive evidence for supporting mental health. With over 900 species of sage oil, I manage to narrow it down to two of the most common ones that have been documented to positively impact the brain.
In this 10-minute video, you will learn:
The “entourage” of compounds found in different sage oils.
Several factors that result in variances in constituents in sage oil between manufacturers of essential oils and within the same species.
The mechanism of sage oil that has been found to effect memory and cognition.
Specific human trials using sage oil that reported positive brain effects in both healthy and dementia subjects.
Three practical takeaways to ensure you’re getting the most out of your bottle of sage essential oil!

*Safety reminder: Please be extra sure to check with your doctor if you have a seizure disorder. The Epilepsy Society of the UK lists certain essential oils implicated for their antiseizure effect as well as those that have stimulating properties.
For additional safety and medical information, please be sure to visit my essential oils database. This includes a full category on how to use essential oils safely and potential drug interactions that can occur.
If you and/or your physician are interested in consulting with me to assist with supporting the integration of essential oils safely into a therapeutic protocol, essential oils consultations are available.

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.
