What is hypertension?

Elevated blood pressure (hypertension) is a major risk factor for a heart attack or stroke. In fact, it is generally regarded as the most significant risk factor for a stroke.

Essential oils: which one for hypertension?

The most important oils for use in these circumstances are Clary Sage, Lavender, Majoram, Melisa and Ylang Ylang:

  • Clary Sage relaxes the veins and arteries, which will reduce the pressure,
  • Lavender has a calming effect and will reduce nervous tension,
  • Majoram: calming effect on the mind and body (as Lavender), and will soothe muscles too,
  • Melisa: a good choice in case of hypertension, due its sedative effect,
  • Ylang Ylang is valuable if there is shortness of breath or over-rapid breathing or heartbeat, two symptoms that often accompany high blood pressure.

To reduce stress level (often linked to hypertension), you can also have a look at Chamomile, Bergamot, Neroli, Rose or Frankincense. See the page related to stress for more information, or the dedicated page of each oil.

Please note that you should avoid these essential oils if you suffer from high blood pressure:

  • Hyssop: it contains pinocamphone, which could cause convulsions,
  • Rosemary: very stimulating oil,
  • Thyme: this oil is used to increase blood pressure for people with hypotension, not really what you want,
  • Sage (different from Clary Sage, which is recommended): this oil contains thujone, which could cause convulsions too.
