I have been on Norvasc for my blood pressure ever since it got dangerously high and remained high out of the blue several months ago. I was symptomatic and sought medical help since I work with stroke patients on a daily basis in my job. This happened about the same time that I joined Young Living and started using essential oils.

Skip ahead to this summer....

I got a bottle of Melrose essential oil blend for a yeast issue. When we were at the beach in July, I broke out on my chest, presumably from using sunscreen (I have very sensitive skin). So I started applying the diluted Melrose oil blend to my chest twice a day, with the hope that it would clear up my breakout.

Around the same time, I forgot to take my blood pressure medicine for a couple of days during and after my vacation. After a few days when I checked my blood pressure (BP), I noticed it was in a very good, normal range (not normal for me even on my medicine) even though I had not taken my medicine. So I did not take my medicine at the time because I did not want my blood pressure to get too low.

After a few more days of this, a friend asked if it might be the essential oils I have been using that may have brought down my blood pressure. I looked up the information in my reference books on the essential oils that I had been using, and none of them mentioned being useful for hypertension.

However, I then looked up the individual essential oils that are in the Melrose blend, and the two Melaleuca oils (alternifolia and quinquenervia) said their uses include hypertension! So I continued to apply Melrose and monitored my blood pressure closely.

I visited my doctor this past week after 2 weeks of not taking my prescription due to my blood pressure being in the 115/75 range WITHOUT my medicine. He gave me the green light to stop taking the Norvasc unless my blood pressure goes up again. I will be keeping some Norvasc on hand (just in case) and will be continuing to monitor my blood pressure.

I believe it was the combination of a relaxing vacation and the Melrose essential oil blend that has helped my blood pressure. I am still applying Melrose to my chest twice a day and am still doing well. Praise the Lord!
