As you know I’m a big fan of essential oils and the healing benefits they offer for anxiety and stress. Here is one example of the power of essential oils for both reducing stress and lowering cortisol levels.
In this study, Essential oil inhalation on blood pressure and salivary cortisol levels in prehypertensive and hypertensive subjects, 83 participants who were hypertensive (high blood pressure) or prehypertensive were asked to inhale an essential oil blend of lavender, ylang-ylang, marjoram, and neroli with the following ratio (20 : 15 : 10 : 2).
The study group experienced the relaxation effects of this particular blend of essential oils leading to:
- significant decreases in the concentration of salivary cortisol
- reduced blood pressure
- and stress reduction.
Here is the rationale for the particular blend they used in this study:
Lavender alleviates cardiac excitation, lowers BP [blood pressure], and is effective in hypertension and palpitations. Ylang-ylang lowers BP [blood pressure], alleviates palpitations and nervous system excitation, and promotes emotional relaxation. Marjoram lowers sympathetic nervous system activity and stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, resulting in vasodilatation to reduce cardiac strain and decrease BP [blood pressure]. Neroli brings forth emotional soothing and comfort and is effective in cardiac palpitations secondary to shock or fear.
