The best thing you can do for your heart is to live a healthy, active lifestyle. Exercise helps your heart become stronger and also helps you feel more energetic. doTERRA Motivate, Peppermint, Wild Orange and other uplifting oils can help you feel energized to achieve your fitness goals. In addition, you can add extra exercise to your daily routine by taking the stairs, walking during phone calls, biking to school with your children, taking an evening walk and stretching before bed (think Yoga) . When it comes to your heart health, all the small steps add up to make a big difference to your health.
To support heart health, it is also important to combine omega-3 fatty acids with your diet. Omega-3 fatty acids are often deficient in the modern diet as they only occur naturally in seafood and a few plants, but these healthy unsaturated fats increase heart health.* xEO Mega provides a wide range of omega-3 fatty acids, including EPA, DHA, ALA and SDA to support cardiovascular health.* Daily supplementation with xEO Mega helps support heart health and healthy blood pressure levels in the normal range.
Essential oils can also be put to good use. Cinnamon Bark and Cassia essential oils can promote healthy circulation and cardiovascular function when used internally. Internal use of Marjoram and Copaiba may support cardiovascular health. When supporting heart health is a special concern for you, take one to two drops in a veggie capsule every morning.
For many people, massage is a soothing way to help with circulation. The AromaTouch blend is a perfect companion for massage. It offers soothing and relaxing effects that enhance the benefits of massage. Apply one to two drops to the desired area and massage away from the heart. You can also add a drop of Peppermint for a gentle stimulating sensation. Use the essential oils diluted with fractionated coconut oil.
