I was born with a complex heart defect. In fact, it is so complex that I have seen adult congenital cardiologists who have never seen a case just like mine in their 30+ years of practice.

I was told at age 12 that having biological children would be unwise and may shorten my lifespan. Regardless, I have had 3 biological children via C-section! After each childbirth they expect my issues to slowly get worse. Well....

In September of 2014 I began rubbing 4 drops of Aroma Life essential oil blend over my heart and chest each night before bed. Then when I saw my cardiologist in November of the same year, he told me that I was not getting worse but had actually improved -- just as good as I was before my third child was born!

I plan on continuing my applications to see what I am told the next time I go in.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1."Aromatherapy... [consisting of] a blend of oils of lemon (Citrus limonum), lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), and ylang ylang (Cananga odorata)... is effective in lowering systolic blood pressure and sympathetic nerve system activity... of heart rate variability."Link
2."[I]dentifying... the effects of YYA [ylang ylang aroma] on blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR) is important in order to demonstrate the effectiveness of YYA. The present results demonstrated that inhalation of YYA significantly decreased the systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Inhalation of YYA also significantly decreased the HRs in 10 leads.... In the present results, YYA caused a reduction of HR and BP, and a relief of the arousal level in healthy men. The present results show a sedative effect of YYA, and this study provides some evidences for the usage of YYA [as a] medicinal agent."Link
3."Myrtle oil (MO) exerts hypoglycemic as well as mild hypotriglyceridemic activity in diabetic animals. The reduction in blood glucose level may be due to the reversible inhibition of alpha-glucosidases present in the brush-border of the small intestinal mucosa, higher rate of glycolysis as envisaged by the higher activity of glucokinase, as one of the key enzymes of glycolysis, and enhanced rate of glycogenesis as evidenced by the higher amount of liver glycogen present after MO administration."Link
