As I recall, the first time I dabbled using essential oils to manage my blood pressure was in early 2015. At that time, my once perfect blood pressure had taken a leap from 120/80 to 160/90 and higher. I pretty much freaked out and called my physician. After calming me down, she told me to take a deep breath, monitor my BP daily for a couple of weeks, and if there was no change, secure an appointment so we could do some testing.
Rather than wait, a few days later I decided to experiment with natural remedies before taking more drastic measures such as pharmaceuticals. The rest, for me, is history.
I found a combination of essential oils that not only worked to help manage my own blood pressure but also helped my husband and countless others who followed my original March 2015 post on Backdoor Survival. To this day I still use essential oils in a salve form to maintain healthy blood pressure. You will find the simple, DIY recipe below.
But first, let me speak to a concern that has bubbled to the top for all of us this past year. That concern is how we will deal with health issues in the event modern medicine and western doctors are no longer available to keep us well. Or, as recent history has shown us when in-person doctor visits are curtailed but for all but the direst of circumstances.
