The name is derived from the Latin word claris for 'clear', and by the Middle Ages it was known as Oculus Christi, or the Eye of Christ. During the sixteenth century it was used in England as a replacement for hops when brewing beer. Clary Sage Oil can be diffused to create a peaceful atmosphere. It is also used in formulating natural perfumes.
