Q

Can you help me find scholarly articles about how essential oils can be used for heart patients and the benefits they provide?

I am researching essential oils for use in heart patients and their benefits. I am looking for any scholarly articles that would give me some information as to how they help with hypertension, cholesterol issues, and any other benefits for heart patients.

Answer

You are going to need to do a search in a couple different databases. I would recommend CINAHL complete and PubMed to start. I would also try Alt Health Watch and possibly Academic Search Premier You can a do a subject or keyword search for essential oils and hypertension, hyperlipidemia, heart disease, coronary disease, etc. I would seperate them, so do a search for essential oils and hypertension, then do a search for essentail oils and hyperlipidemia, etc. If you have a specific oil in mind, you may also want to search that. Do you know how to do a subject search in CINAHL and/or PubMed? If a keyword search is not giving you what you need, then try a subject search.
