Essential Oils Treatment for High Blood Pressure

Hypertension or high blood pressure refers to a situation where pressure upon the blood vessels and arteries is higher than normal as the arterial wall ends up distorted, giving the heart additional stress. The risk of long term hypertension includes diabetes, heart attack and stroke. It’s brought about by a diet characterized by lots of salt, alcohol, inactivity, poisoning by heavy metal, caffeine, birth control pills, obesity and smoking.

Warning signs include irregular heartbeat, changes in vision, tiredness, nosebleeds, ear buzzing or noise, headaches, confusion and chest pains. Essential oils decrease blood pressure by dilating arteries, dipping oxidative stress through their antioxidant action and lowering emotional stress. Best oils for hypertension include: Lavender-High Altitude, Marjoram Sweet, Melissa Lemon Balm and Yarrow-Blue.
