The best thing you can do for your heart is to live a healthy, active lifestyle. Exercise helps your heart get stronger and also helps you feel more energetic. doTERRA Motivate, Peppermint, Wild Orange and other uplifting oils can help you feel energized to reach your fitness goals. In addition, you can add extra exercise to your daily routine by taking the stairs, walking during telephone calls, cycling to school with your children, taking an evening walk and stretching before going to sleep (think of Yoga). When it comes to heart health, all the small steps together make a big difference to your health.
It is also important to combine omega-3 fatty acids with your diet to support heart health. Omega-3 fatty acids are often deficient in the modern diet, as they occur naturally only in seafood and a few plants, but these healthy unsaturated fats boost heart health.* xEO Mega provides a wide variety 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 used well. 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. If supporting heart health is of particular concern to you, take one to two drops each morning in a veggie capsule.
For many people, massage is a soothing way to help with circulation. The AromaTouch blend is a perfect companion for massage. It provides 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 have a drop Peppermint Add for a mildly stimulating feeling. Use the essential oils diluted with fractionated coconut oil.
