Historically its old name was Muscatel Oil as it was used as a flavoring in Muscatel wine. The practice of German merchants of adding clary and elder flowers to Rhine wine to make it imitate a good Muscatel was so common that Germans still call the herb Muskateller Salbei and the English know it as Muscatel Sage. The Romans called it sclarea, from claurus, or “clear,” because they used the plant as eyewash.
