There are a couple of essential oils that will lower blood sugar, but you have to be careful with them. They work by stimulating the pancreas to produce more insulin - and that is not a desireable condition for long term use. But if you are looking for other ways to lower blood glucose, then take a look at GERANIUM OIL and CORIANDER OIL.

You can buy these essential oils at any good health food store. Rub them on the little veins that are at your ankles, or rub them on the bottom of your feet. Presto! Blood sugar is down. Within 10 minutes, these essential oils have traveled from your feet all the way around your body!

But now we need to look at why these oils work, and why they are not good for long term use. The oils stimulate insulin production - and if used for a long time, can exhaust the pancreas. This is just like any medicine that you may be taking that stimulates insulin production, so this is also a warning about pushing the pancreas too far, whether it is from essential oil or traditional prescriptions.

But, for occasional use, these oils work just fine. But remember, the better way to manage blood glucose is with FOOD, just in time meals, and hitting your target numbers. These oils are just for use in emergencies.

A nice side effect of the geranium oil is that it will also kill pain from shingles if rubbed right on the shingles, and it also keeps away mosquitoes.
