We just received this wonderful note from a woman who has found that using Ylang Ylang essential oil quickly reduced her husband’s blood pressure. Further, research published in the Journal of Exercise Rehabilitation showed inhalation of Ylang Ylang lowered blood pressure, in addition to reducing heart rate as well.*
Ylang Ylang essential oil is distilled from the flowers of a tall tropical tree. Several distillations are available, and the ‘complete’ is a combination of all distillations, being the sweetest, most fragrant of these essential oils.
Here’s the note we’d recently received, with Ylang Ylang used both aromatically and topically:
“My husband had a mild heart attack this past summer. In the weeks that followed he was having to really watch his blood pressure. The medications the doctors had put him on were not agreeing with him or helping matters. I had read Ylang Ylang may be helpful with high blood pressure. I ordered the Ylang Ylang complete from Ananda.
“We started using it when his blood pressure was pressing what for him was a danger limit – he would get a headache as well when it would get in the 170 / 102 range. How we use it with wonderful results was as follows: My husband would hold the bottle and breath in several times taking the aroma into his senses.
“Then I would apply 3-5 drops on each of his wrists on the pulse point- and then about 5 drops on or below his left collarbone above his heart area. In 10 to 15 minutes his blood pressure would drop 10 points – both top and bottom side. The tension would lessen in his head as well as that overall bodily tense feeling.
“This was not a one-time thing. On several different days since we have done the same application – with the same results – in the same amount of time. Thank you for a wonderful quality oil!”
Please note, we are not saying the use of Ylang Ylang or other essential oils is a substitute for professional medical care. We do, however, appreciate positive customer experiences with essential oils.
The following is the research abstract published in the Journal of Exercise Rehabilitation, April 9, 2013:
“Effects of Ylang-Ylang aroma on blood pressure and heart rate in healthy men”
Although the Ylang-Ylang aroma (YYA) has used as a general method for its sedative effect, there was a little report on the efficacy of YYA on heart function using the electrocardiogram (EKG). Therefore, identifying the effects of YYA on blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR) is important in order to demonstrate the effectiveness of YYA. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of YYA on BP and HR in healthy men. Twenty-nine men took part in this study.
The subjects were randomly divided into 2 groups: Ylang-Ylang group (YYG, n= 15) and control group (CG, n= 14). Physiological parameters recorded were BP by using a sphygmomanometer and HR by using an EKG. 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, except in lead I and aVR. This indicates that the HRs recorded in lead I and aVR were less sensitive or obtuse compared to those in the 10 other leads. Therefore, such a result reveals that it is necessary to be aware of the terms regarding the position. 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 evidence for the usage of YYA in medicinal agent.*
