"Health is adding a level of intention to every area of your life"
- Miranda Anderson
Have you ever been given a massage that was paired with essential oils? If so, you'll likely agree with me that it brings the experience to a whole new level!
The essential oil I'd like to focus on today is a proprietary blend from doTerra called AromaTouch, or massage blend. It is a combination of Cypress, Peppermint, Marjoram, Basil, Grapefruit, and Lavender.
This blend was created to provide relaxation and comfort. It has a clean, fresh, minty and 'powdery' scent.
This blend is a great one for supporting cardiovascular health because of it's ability to evoke feelings of relaxation, thus helping us to approach and manage our stressors appropriately. As a refresher, chronic stress is damaging to the cardiovascular system because it raises heart rate & blood pressure, causes the release of stress hormones, contributes to inflammation, and plays a role in poor decision making, all of which puts us at risk for heart attack and stroke.
While essential oils on their own likely won't prevent either of these health conditions, they are a wonderful adjunct to a healthy lifestyle.
Here are some ways doTerra recommends you use this oil blend:
**As always, if you are new to essential oils, find someone with experience who you can trust to get you started!
