Essential oils are concentrated plant essences with the the ability to affect the human physiology in profound ways.

One area in which a particular type of essential oil shines is in reducing blood pressure, relieving anxiety, and increasing feelings of calmness and relaxation.

This oil is not listed among top five nutrients that greatly improve heart health, but it can have a profound effect on the health of anyone suffering from heart palpitations or health challenges.

It helps to soothe those who inhale it, similar to a popular variety of red tea.

It’s often included in relaxation essential oil blends because of its ability to decrease the number of heartbeats per minute in people with elevated heart rates.

The oil is Clary Sage, and it includes a heavenly scent and medicinal properties that are still being discovered.


Clary Sage Calms a Racing Heart

A study published in the peer-reviewed medical journal Plant Medica, the official journal of the Society for Medicinal Plant and Natural Product Research, found that Clary Sage is marvelously effective at slowing the heart rates of both men and women with elevated levels.

Known by its scientific name Salvea sclarea, Clary Sage oil was put to the test in vitro in 2020 to test its effects on the pulse rates of men and women.

The oil of Clary Sage was inhaled by both men and women, leading to decreased pulse rate over a time period of 30 minutes. The effect was “significantly stronger” in women than in men. Women who applied it topically experienced increase heart rates, but further studies have shown that Clary Sage calms the user in myriad ways.

Another study found that Clary Sage oil significantly decreased systolic blood pressure in women dealing with urinary incontinence issues.

The effect of Clary Sage oil was stronger than lavender oil, although both oils significantly reduced blood pressure rates and slowed down breathing, leading to increased relaxation.
