Cardiovascular Disease is the leading of cause of death in the United States. And that’s true for both men and women. Heart disease kills 610,000 people in the United States every year — that’s roughly 1 of every 4 deaths.
Reducing your risk of heart disease involves making simple changes to your lifestyle, like quitting smoking, cutting down on alcohol, smart eating habits, daily exercise, and monitoring your cholesterol and blood pressure.
Guess what? Essential oils can help support your hearts health! Many studies have found great benefits of aromatherapy for the heart.
Heart disease runs in my family unfortunately. And I get palpitations quite often, when I’m stressed or when I eat a big meal, or when I drink caffeine. So these are the oils that I like to keep on hand to quiet them down and just support my heart when it’s not feeling well: Ylang Ylang, Marjoram, Geranium, Cypress, Balance Grounding blend, Ginger, Lavender, Melissa, and Jasmine.
Oils for Circulation: Cypress, Thyme, Peppermint, Clary Sage, Wintergreen, Citrus Bliss Invigorating blend
Cardio Tonic: 10 drops each Lavender & Thyme + fractionated coconut oil in a 5mL roller bottle. Roll over heart, carotid arteries (neck), feet, under left ring finger, above elbow, behind ring toe on left foot, and to reflex points on the feet.
And of course, they say the heart is the Emotional Center of the body as well! These oils will help you process the emotion and progress to a higher moods.
