11 Essential Oil Recipes for High Blood Pressure

11 Essential Oil Recipes That Battle High Blood Pressure

There are a number of factors that can lead to hypertension or high blood pressure. When your arteries have a blockage or your vessels grow narrow, the heart works harder to get the blood where it needs to be. This puts a strain on your heart, which will be damaged if nothing is done to get the blood pressure back to normal.

Natural remedies are the best route when it comes to relieving body issues, and hypertension is no different. Essential oils are full of all kinds of benefits to help your life. Let’s take a look at some essential oil recipes for high blood pressure.

Essential Oil High Blood Pressure Relief Recipe

Hypertension is a serious issue and can lead to some serious health issues. Not only can a person suffer a stroke, there is the risk of coronary artery disease, heart failure, aneurysm, dementia, kidney issues, and it can cause damage to your eyes. While there are medications your physician can prescribe and lifestyle choices that will help you lower your blood pressure, essential oils can provide some aid as well.

These recipes might help you in your quest to lower your blood pressure. Before you apply any essential oils topically, be aware of skin sensitivities and always do a spot check. If you are on any medication, be sure to consult a healthcare professional first.

Foot Massage

One of the three ways essential oils can be used for relief is through topical use or massaging them into the skin and muscles. In this case, these are specifically the ones applied at the bottom of your feet. When it comes to hypertension, it might seem strange that this route can bring relief to a circulatory issue, but we think when you try it, you might be pleasantly surprised as it helps you relax, and that in a way reduces blood pressure. Upon application, the oils penetrate through the pores while you breath in the scent. It’s truly the best of both worlds.

Blend the above ingredients in a dark bottle and put it with your other oils for storage. If you rub this mixture on the bottom of your feet, you will feel the relaxation set in from this powerful mix of oils. Suggested carriers are jojoba and sweet almond.

This blend works well when added to some steaming water. You can lean over it and inhale all the scent you want. The experience is much more intense when you drape a towel over your head. Make sure to pull your head out from the steam from time to time so you don’t overdo it

Over The Heart

Bath

  • 1 drop of sandalwood
  • 2 drops of geranium
  • 2 drops of lavender

Blend them first and then add to the bath water. Your nerves will relax and your blood pressure will lower down a bit. This blend would also work well in homemade bath salts.

Shower

A bath isn’t the only cleansing technique you can use as a vehicle to reap the benefits of your essential oils. The shower is another great place to do this. Just take the following…

  • 1 drop of sandalwood
  • 1 drop of marjoram
  • 1 drop of frankincense
  • 2 drops of lavender

…and do the same. Mix them and add them to the shower. The constant flow of water will create a mist that is scented like nothing you’ve ever known. It’ll be hard to take a shower without oils after the first time you add them.

Lotion

Topical treatments are lovely but some can be super strong, and it’s nice to have a topical treatment that can be applied regularly if needed. This is where lotion comes in, which is a lighter blend you create that you can carry with you.

  • 5 drops of lavender
  • 5 drops of clary sage
  • 5 drops of frankincense

The coconut oil adds a nice touch, and this mixture is something you might find yourself applying to your temples when you feel a little stressed or in a situation where your blood might start pumping.

Diffuser

As we’ve mentioned, inhaling is another way to take advantage of these benefits and using a diffuser is one of the best ways to do this. When broken correctly, essential oils truly pack a punch. Diffusers are designed to make sure the person inhaling the scent is getting the best of the oils.

  • 3 drops of bergamot
  • 3 drops of lavender
  • 3 drops of ylang-ylang

Add these ingredients to your favorite diffuser, possibly the one you use for your larger rooms and then let it run periodically throughout the day. It is advised to only diffuse for no longer than 30 minutes three times a day.

And More Massage

If you notice, this is the largest quantity we’ve listed thus far, and while the ingredients seem to be somewhat similar to those we’ve listed in the past, the volume and size vary from each recipe.
