In Jamaica, it was used by the local people for cleaning and cooling ulcers and for inflammation of the eyes. It is an important and useful oil in aromatherapy and natural medicine for a long time.
Clary sage oil contains the same linalyl acetate that helps make lavender oil so effective in increasing hair growth. It can improve hair strength, in addition to increasing hair growth, making hair more difficult to break.
