Yet, there is one thing every 40-year old woman should have at hand- Clary sage oil.
This oil offers a plethora of health benefits:
- It Helps Digestion
Clary sage boosts bile production and thus accelerates metabolism. In turn, this relieves cramps, indigestion, bloating, and other digestive issues. Moreover, since Clary sage will support the absorption of vitamins and minerals in the body, it will treat constipation, and regulates bowel movements.
