Main Constituents
Linalyl acetate, linalool

The main chemical components of Clary Sage oil are linalool and linalyl acetate. Linalool is a powerful constituent that can affect both the mood and the body. As mentioned by the doTERRA Science blog, a recent study shows that internal use of linalool affects the monoaminergic system of the brain.* When Linalool enters this system, it acts on multiple receptors. Because multiple receptors are targeted, the effects of linalool are more potent and long lasting than molecules that target only one receptor. This effect supports the brain chemistry balance in these receptors, which has the effect of reducing sad feelings.* Another study suggests that ingesting linalool by itself may facilitate the normal process of relaxation of the blood vessels.*3 Linalool used internally is also thought to promote relaxation in the body.4 In addition to linalool, linalyl acetate contains relaxing and soothing properties when used internally because enzymes in the body metabolize linalyl acetate to linalool.5 Linalyl acetate is also part of the esters group, making it one of the most relaxing, soothing, and balancing essential oils.
