Essential Oil Heart Disease Support

doTERRA Essential Oil Support For:

Heart Disease

Heart disease, sometimes referred to as cardiovascular disease, includes a number of conditions affecting the heart and blood vessels.  Conditions such as heart attacks, coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, hypertension, and congenital heart disease are all subcategories of heart disease.  It is the leading cause of death of both men and women in the US as well as worldwide.  The primary causes are linked to bad habits of our modern society including over eating, lack of physical exercise, unhealthy diet, smoking, and alcohol.



  A brief description of some of the subcategories follows: 

·    Angina, is a symptom and not an actual heart disease.  It is a symptom of the heart not receiving enough oxygen which in turn causes the chest pains termed angina. Go to this page for more information, angina.

·    Arrhythmia refers to a number of conditions where the heart beat is irregular.  Some such palpitations such as a skipped beat or an occasional strong beat are not uncommon and normal but continued or strong palpitations can be indicators of life threatening problems and should be taken seriously.

·    Arteriosclerosis, also know as hardening of the arteries, occurs when arteries become thick with deposits or loose their flexibility thus limiting the amount of blood that can be delivered.  (Atherosclerosis is a subset of arteriosclerosis and is specifically the build up of plaque (fats) in the arteries.)

·    Atherosclerosis is a subset of arteriosclerosis and is specifically the build up of plaque (fats) in the arteries.

·    Cardiomyopathy refers to problems in the heart muscle itself (myocardium). People with cardiomyopathy are often at risk of arrhythmia and/or sudden cardiac death.

·    Congenital heart disease describes those heart irregularities that were present at birth.

·    Congestive heart failure (or CHF), occurs when restricted arteries or other conditions limit the blood supply to the heart and weaken it to the point that it cannot deliver sufficient blood to the body.

·    Coronary heart disease is when there is not a sufficient blood supply to the muscles of the heart.  Most commonly this comes from restrictions in the arteries.  Common symptoms are chest pains (angina pectoris) or a heart attack (myocardial infarction).

·    Hypertensive heart diseases are conditions that occur because of high blood pressure. See this page for more information, hypertension.

·    Inflammatory heart disease includes a number of conditions where heart muscles or tissue become inflamed.

·    Valvular heart disease (VHD) describes those maladies that affect one of the four major valves in the heart.

Apple Blaster Hearth Healthy Drink

Cayenne pepper (ground or fresh) is known for its vascular healing properties, and is heart food. The problem with cayenne is you have to start out real small and slowly adjust to the heat. Start with a pinch and gradually get to 1 teaspoon. It will strengthen veins, heart, and blood.

One way to get cayenne pepper down is in Apple Blasters (I make these when we have colds as well)

·    3 apples, juiced

·    1 lemon, juiced

·    1 knuckle sized ginger root, juiced

·    Cayenne to taste (my kids can do 1/4 teaspoon at a time)

You can also add a drop of lemon essential oil, or OnGuard and Mix it well.

With doTERRA essential oils, my friend David can walk again!

True doTerra Tesimonial:

Written by Holan Nakata

David Johannes

I met David Johannes in 2009. I met him through a  couple Reedson and Rosina Edwin who happened to run into my store and we discussed alternative health. Rosina experienced great results so Reedson introduced David to Howard Nakata and me.

At the time David was on 19 medications with diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid issues and had renal failure with dialysis. It was my start of learning the importance of living healthy, how painful diabetes is and how it affects the people around and also emotions. He was unable to walk for the most part, using a wheelchair whenever I saw him.

David’s family and our family became friends. That’s the beauty of direct sales and health, the relationship goes beyond seller buyer. We were invited to family events and parties.

It’s amazing what hope alternative health can bring. Although western medicine has the ability to keep a person alive, sometimes it does not bring back the quality of life. In addition to a deteriorating health, a little bit of dignity fades away.

David took control of his health changing the way he ate, and took natural supplements. I saw the love of his family who also made the changes in their diet and routine to match David’s even when healthy. I found that families that work as one experience great results.

David’s diabetes, blood pressure was under control, and other vitals returned. The doctor relieved him from 19 medications to two medications for his kidney. David was able to travel to Kosrae off dialysis for a week to see his mother. Sometimes, he would walk with a walker, a cane, with an unsteady gait.

As he awaits a kidney transplant, David continues to live healthy.

Howard Nakata introduced doTERRA to David in 2010. With great results that David had so far, he took a look at doTERRA and saw the emotional help it can make. It wasn’t until February 2011, when Dr. David Hill came to teach the Aroma Touch.

It was a special class, Dr. Hill wanted to share the Neuropathy Technique as he had family members who had diabetes.

Dr. David Hill asked for volunteers that were diabetic with diabetes. The first person who volunteered was borderline diabetes and still had circulation and could not be used to demonstrate the effectiveness of the oils.

The following is a video of David Johannes surprising guest and family walking strong to share doTERRA essential oils:

People on our team volunteered David Johannes. It was there I learned about neuropathy that causes numbness, or tingling, or the ability to not feel. Dr. Hill also showed that diabetes affected circulation, in addition to seeing discoloration, people went up to feel how hard the calves were.

Without circulation, it is difficult for a wound to heal or to fight off infection. It is for this reason, thousands of diabetics every year lose their limbs, something David Johannes knows all too well, losing one leg.

After Dr. David Hill used the Neuropathy Technique for ten minutes on David. You could see color of his legs come back. They called the people to feel his calf and it and is was soft. David who went to the class on a wheelchair was able to walk with a steady gait without a cane because he could actually feel his steps. From that day, his family continued to do the technique and his walking improved.

What impacted David was not only the technique but the care that Dr. Hill showed, he showed genuine concern and compassion. He was especially moved when Dr. Hill said do not charge for this technique as people that have diabetes have a hard enough time.

David says that he walks to the park with his newborn daughter. People go up to him and ask “Weren’t that the guy on the wheelchair?” Now David looks forward to fathering his daughter, and maintaining health is beyond him but for those around him.

doTERRA gave him more than an ability to walk. It gave him love, hope, dignity, and a mission to share with others.

This was when I told myself, doTERRA is a company I can support with a mission I can share for the rest of my life.

This was a beginning of a start of a multitude of testimonies of Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils and how it is important to have 100% Pure Essential Oils with therapeutic value. The results show that there is a difference in CPTG Essential Oils.

Bergamot Essential Oil

DoTerra Bergamot Essential Oil

A highly favored oil for its lovely fragrance, Bergamot is unique among citrus oils for its calming properties. dōTERRA®, in keeping with the CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® standard, cold-presses the oil from the rind of the bergamot fruit. For aromatic, topical, or internal use.


  • Topically – Can be applied neat to the skin. Can be applied to forehead, reflex points or directly onto the area of concern.
  • Aromatically – Can also be diffused.
  • Internally – Can be added to food or water to be taken internally. Bergamot has been classified as GRAS by the FDA for human consumption.

The health benefits of Bergamot Essential Oil can be attributed to its properties like deodorant, vulnerary, vermifuge, anti biotic, anti septic, anti spasmodic, sedative, analgesic, anti depressant, disinfectant, febrifuge, cicatrisant, digestive etc.

Bergamot is a citrus fruit whose rind is used for extracting the Bergamot Oil. The scientific name of Bergamot is Citrus Aurantium var. or Citrus Bergamia. It is a tropical plant but thrives well in Europe too.

This oil has been used in the Middle East for hundreds of years to help oily complexions and troubled skin.  It may also be used to soothe insect bites.  It is also what gives Earl Grey Tea its distinctive flavor.

Bergamot Oil has a very sweet smell and a number of medicinal and industrial uses due to its properties listed below

  • Anti depressant & Stimulant: The components of Bergamot Oil, like Alpha Pinene and Limonene, are anti depressant and stimulant in nature. They give a feeling of freshness, joy and energy in cases of sadness and depression by improving circulation. They also stimulate hormone secretion and thus help maintaining proper rates of metabolism. This stimulating effect increases secretion of digestive juices, bile and insulin, thereby aiding digestion, proper absorption of nutrients, assimilation and decomposition of sugar and the resultant lowering of blood sugar level.
  • Relaxant & Sedative: The Flavonoids present in Bergamot oil are very good relaxants too. They soothe nerves and reduce nervous tension, anxiety, stress etc. and hence help cure ailments associated with stress such as sleeplessness, high blood pressure etc.
  • Anti Biotic & Disinfectant: Certain components of the essential oil of Bergamot are anti biotic and disinfectant in nature. They inhibit growth of germs, virus and fungi. They also effectively prohibit infections, such as those of skin. If regularly used with bathing water or in soaps (this is already used extensively in skin-care soaps), the skin and hair remains protected from infections and become shiny. It also cures infections of colon, intestines, urinary tract and kidney
  • Anti Septic & Vulnerary: The same disinfectant and anti biotic properties of Bergamot Oil make it a good anti septic and vulnerary agent. It not only helps fast healing up of wounds, cracks on skin and heels, ulcers, eczema, itches etc. but also protects wounds from being septic and developing tetanus.
  • Febrifuge: Febrifuge is a substance or an agent that reduces fever and lowers body temperature. Bergamot is a good febrifuge due to many reasons. First, being an anti biotic, it fights infections from virus, bacteria and protozoa which cause fever, such as influenza (virus), malaria (protozoa) and typhoid (typhus bacteria), and thus helps curing fever. Second, it stimulates the metabolic system and secretions, thereby giving a feeling of warmth and resulting in more secretion (perspiration or sweat) from the Eccrine glands (sweat glands) and sebaceous (sebum) glands, thus reducing body temperature.
  • Analgesic: It reduces the feeling of pain in the body. Actually it stimulates secretion of certain hormones which lessen sensitivity of nerves to pain. Thus it is very helpful in case of headache, sprains etc. all those symptoms which require heavy dosage of analgesic pills.
  • Digestive: As discussed above, it activates and increases secretions of the digestive acids, enzymes and bile and facilitates digestion. It also synchronizes or regulates the peristaltic motion of the intestines and this way too, help in digestion.
  • Cicatrisant: This property of Bergamot oil is the reason behind its extensive use in cosmetics, skin-care products such as beauty soaps, creams, lotions etc. Cicatrisant is a property or an agent which helps the scar and other marks on the skin to disappear. It also makes the distribution of pigments and melanin even and uniform, resulting in the fading away of marks.
  • Deodorant: No doubt, this property of bergamot oil is going to attract the teenagers who are after every new deodorant in the market and desperately want something really refreshing and natural. This is an excellent deodorant. Its own refreshing aroma (fragrance) and disinfectant properties (which inhibit growth of germs causing body-odor) make it a really effective and attractive package as a deodorant.
  • Anti Spasmodic: It relaxes nerves and muscles and thus gives quick relief in cramps, convulsions, painful muscle contractions etc.
  • Vermifuge: It kills worms. Thus it is going to be a very fragrant choice for children who have worms. It can also be applied on the affected tooth or used as a mouthwash to kill oral germs and protect teeth from cavities.

Other Benefits:

It is also Tonic, that is, it tones up respiratory, circulatory, digestive, excretory, nervous system as well as skin and muscles. It is also anti congestive and is used in vaporizers to relieve congestion and respiratory problems, particularly during cough and cold.

Few Words of Caution:

Bergamot Oil must be protected from sunlight. Bergaptene, one of its components, becomes poisonous if exposed to sunlight. That is why it should be stored in dark bottles in dark places. Even exposure to sunlight should be avoided after it is applied or rubbed on skin (for 72 hours)


I LOVE this EO. I use it primarily for CP soaping, but it is an excellent scent for aromatherapy, massage, homemade cleaners, & creams. Everyone always wants to know what smell that is they can’t put their finger on. I always think of trees, oranges, and spices when I smell it. If you have never tried it, get some now!

-Jenny Jones


I use this oil (topically) primarily for its antispasmodic qualities. Combined with lavender, it does a wonderful job of helping me relax and let go at the end of the day.

-Ashley Phipps

Bergamot is one of my favorites for use in Aromatherapy. The sweet scent is not overpowering, yet it works wonders.

All Natural High Blood Pressure Support

DoTerra Essential Oil Support For:

High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)

Blood pressure is a measurement of the force against the walls of your arteries as the heart pumps blood through the body.

Blood pressure readings are measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg) and usually given as two numbers — for example, 120 over 80 (written as 120/80 mmHg). One or both of these numbers can be too high.

The top number is your systolic pressure.

  • It is considered high if it is over 140 most of the time.
  • It is considered normal if it is below 120 most of the time.

The bottom number is your diastolic pressure.

  • It is considered high if it is over 90 most of the time.
  • It is considered normal if it is below 80 most of the time.

    You are more likely to be told your blood pressure is too high as you get older. This is because your blood vessels become stiffer as you age. When that happens, your blood pressure goes up. High blood pressure increases your chance of having a stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease, and early death.
