Place 1 drop of eucalyptus essential oil on the fold of a wash cloth with the other end of the cloth over your eyes.Lie in a warm, comfortable bed. Start by taking a very deep, slow breath- one that you can feel in the diaphragm. Let that breath out as slowly as you can. Wait 3 seconds and repeat. Do this 10 times. Remember to breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth.

4. Continue these same deep breathing exercises, except for the next 10 times, take a regular deep breathe. Remember to exhale slowly.

5. Continue your breathing exercises, except this time inhale with just a slight increase in depth compared to your normal breathing. Remember to exhale slowly. This is a great way to naturally lower your blood pressure. Try to do this once every day.
