To celebrate heart health month, I am providing a series on how medicine can redefine its approach to cardiovascular disease by incorporating a more personalized and integrative method. In the previous post, I reviewed how essential oils can fit into this more comprehensive perspective. For example, not only do oils physically impact cardiovascular function, but they can also promote connection and healthy relationships. This means that these plant secondary metabolites can help to mitigate the number one mortality risk of isolation.
Now, as February comes to a close, the caring for the heart still remains imperative. In my latest article, I review five of my favorite essential oils and blends to support cardiovascular function. For each essential oil selection, I discuss how its properties and characteristics specifically impacts heart health.
The oils and mixtures I explore include:
- Ylang Ylang
- Sacred Frankincense
- Stress Relief Blend
- Unifying Blend
I also list several other posts and resources on how the heart is supported by essential oils.
With their capability to holistically address the physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and relational wellness levels, essential oils are one of my favorite tools to address the mind-heart-body connection.
