The theory behind Clary sage is that it's very relaxing and can relax your uterus enough if absorbed through your skin to kickstart labour. It's advised that you don't use very much because it can effect people differently and can make you groggy. I had a couple of Clary sage baths last time but I put literally two drops in. I loved it, I felt so relaxed but I didn't really do it because I wanted to go into labour I just love the smell. I also bought some really lovely body cream with Clary sage in it and it made my skin feel fab. I like Clary sage but I'm not much of a believer that it does a whole lit, depends how much you use I guess its also apparently used as pain relief by inhaling it from a cloth but I don't know much about that. It is nice stuff though. X
I used it on a cloth and carried it about for a night. Nada
Next morning I used some in a bath (maybe I did go overboard :/) and carried the tissue around the whole day. Result-she was born the following morning.
I wouldn't have bothered trying but my heart was breaking that my toddler was suffering with me being housebound.
