For boosting your heart health and reducing chances of a heart attack or stroke, add some copaiba to your aromatherapy ritual or the essential oil regimen. Copaiba essential oil has anti-inflammatory and soothing properties, as per research. These properties can help relieve the tension and strain in your blood vessels, allowing blood pressure to drop and making the strain disappear from your cardiovascular system. This helps prevent atherosclerosis, which is one of the leading causes of stroke and coronary heart disease. However, I am not too sure, if you can ingest it. I’d suggest that you continue with the medication the doctor has prescribed and consult a counselor should you want any further information or wish to know about any alternate mode of medication. Wish you a speedy recovery!
