I've always had low blood pressure, to the point where giving blood was an issue. Recently, going through a lot of life changes like being a new step mom, homeschooling, dealing with ex-husband, etc. I began to notice that I was stressed more than usual. As a new mom, I have yet to figure out a schedule that includes regular yoga/meditation time for me.

After a particularly stressful encounter, I began to hear a constant whoosing sound in my ear, accompanied by a headache and light sensitivity. This lasted for about three days and I'm not sure why I didn't think to search it out in the essential oil reference book earlier.

I Googled 'whooshing sound' and everything I read said high blood pressure, stress, and many other scary things. I grabbed my Essential Oil Desk Reference and intuitively reached for Ylang Ylang. It is an oil that is suppportive of both heart function and normalizing blood pressure.

After inhalation for five minutes, the headache and annoying whooshing stopped. Since all of this happened after a extremely upsetting and stressful experience, I was able to feel strongly that this was all linked to stress. I have since found time for meditation/yoga and continue to apply Ylang Ylang to heart Vita Flex points and have been fine since!!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: hypertension,blood-pressure — "The ylang ylang oil caused a significant decrease of blood pressure and a significant increase of skin temperature. At the behavioral level, subjects in the ylang ylang oil group rated themselves more calm and more relaxed than subjects in the control group. These findings are likely to represent a relaxing effect of the ylang ylang oil and provide some evidence for the usage of the ylang ylang oil in aromatherapy such as causing a relief of depression and stress in humans."Link
2.Associated topics: hypertension,blood-pressure — "Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic [anxiety] drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antihypertensive [high blood pressure], antimicrobial, analgesic [pain] agent as well as a wound healing accelerator.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
3.Associated topics: heart — "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
4.Associated topics: heart,blood-pressure — "[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
5.Associated topics: heart,hypertension,blood-pressure — "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
