Blood Pressure Lowering Tea

Hibiscus tea is a traditional remedy for lowering blood pressure. In one study, drinking hibiscus tea for just 12 days reduced systolic pressure by an average 11.7 percent and diastolic pressure by 10.7 percent.  Lavender essential oil is an adaptogen which means it can assist the body when adapting to stress or imbalances. Lavender can be used for a variety of different things but it is great for calming down the body and nervous system which will help lower blood pressure. This is a great relaxing combination to enjoy any time of day.
