Often, you’ll be able to combine a few of them together to get all the added benefits or you can choose not only the one that works but also smells the best to you. Some of the different essential oils that you are able to pick from to help you manage your diabetes include:

Coriander

Coriander or cilantro is an essential oil that began in the western Asia area of the world. Traditionally, you will find that coriander has been used help with digestive problems, such as colic pain, anorexia, and so on, when it is combined in the proper blends. For those who are trying to use it to cure diabetes, coriander is great at lowering the glucose level in the blood because it is able to increase how much insulin is released from the pancreas naturally. In addition, the coriander essential oil has shown to exhibit insulin-like activities when it is at the cellular level.

Cinnamon

Any way that you decide to consume cinnamon is a great way to help reduce your high blood sugars. Consuming it orally, such as in the foods that you eat, is a great way to ease some of the symptoms of diabetes, and smelling it in the essential oil may be just as effective. Research has shown how cinnamon is able to help; it not only reduces the amount of glucose that is in the blood, but also it reduces the amount of cholesterol, as well. So, if you are looking for help with your diabetes, as well as protection for your heart, this is the one to go with.

Clove

There has been some research done that shows how clove, when consumed as a supplement or used as an essential oil, is able to balance your insulin levels. It helps by reducing the glucose levels of those with Type-2 diabetes. If you are fighting diabetes, it is a good idea to consume 2 cloves a day or start using a diffuser each day that has either clove, or a mixture that has clove, in it.

Myrrh

If you are looking for a different kind of oil that is able to add a new kind of scent to your home, myrrh may be the choice that you are looking for. Myrrh is a great one to help control your blood sugar levels, and the antioxidant properties found in Myrrh are perfect for boosting the immune system. For these reasons, it is often considered one of the best essential oils for anyone with diabetes. It is also great for helping the body heal from any damages that occur when diabetes takes over.

Ocotea

This one is a bit different. Ocotea is best when it is consumed in some kind of tea, although you are still able to use one of the methods that we discussed above to make it work as well. This one is going to work in a positive way on the blood sugar levels when you consume it properly. It is good at helping to support your pancreas in regulating insulin, but it is also good for digestion, as long as you make sure to consume it about 10 minutes before you eat. In addition, this oil is really good for reducing some of the inflammation that may be present in your body, and it will also help your body to react better to injury and irritation as it occurs.

Lemon

If you are looking for an oil that is not only going to help you with your diabetes but will also lift up the mood and make you feel so much better in no time, then look no further than lemon. The lemon oil is going to be great for helping you to relax, and it is often used to treat the common cold. It will reduce stress and tension, something that you are probably facing a lot of when dealing with your diabetes.

Ylang Ylang

This is another great essential oil to use, and it is often combined with the lemon oil, when you want help with relaxing, destressing and any anger issues. Many times as a diabetic, there are a lot of things that are out of your control.  When you are trying so hard to cope with diabetes while not seeing the numbers go down or fighting with the doctor, you’ll probably feel a lot of anger and stress at times. If you work with the Ylang Ylang oil and inhale some of the aroma, it is easier to reduce your blood pressure and even to regulate some of the blood circulation in your body.

Thyme

If you have been dealing with diabetes for a long time, you are sure to have some of the other harmful effects that we addressed earlier. Perhaps you may be dealing with psoriasis, bronchitis, and even some heart diseases because your diabetes was not treated properly in the first place. The good news is that using thyme will help prevent some of these diseases, as well as help resolve some if you are already dealing with them. If you are dealing with high blood pressure, though, it is best to avoid this essential oil.

Orange

Orange is a great essential oil to try out when you want to fix the immune system and make sure that your endocrine system gets back to normal. It is also good for helping reduce depression. All of this is going to make it easier to treat your diabetes and get you back on the right track again. You can choose whether you would like to diffuse the orange essential oil or if you’d prefer to digest it orally.

Cypress oil

If you have Type-2 diabetes, you may notice that your circulation is not as good as it once was. There are a number of oils that are able to help out with this kind of circulation, but none of them is going to work quite well as the cypress oil. This one is good in helping with the heart and can ensure that you are getting the circulation back to normal and running inside of all your joints.

Fenugreek

Since Type-2 diabetes means that the body is able to produce the amount of insulin that it needs, but the cells are just not responding to it the way that they should, the fenugreek essential oil is a good one to go with. Fenugreek is able to help increase how sensitive the body is to insulin. This means that fenugreek is not only able to target some of the symptoms of the disease, but it can make it easier for the diabetic to enjoy life because the body is able to work with the insulin that the pancreas is creating. It will help the diabetic feel more energetic and happy throughout the day.

Lavender oil

When it comes to picking out an essential oil that is going to work on everything and anything, lavender oil is the right one for you. This oil is great for helping you relax your body and turn your mind off after a hard day. It is good for lifting you out of depression and even with dealing with some of the skin conditions that have been plaguing you for a long time. It is good for helping calm down the diabetic, while also helping to reduce how much glucose, or sugar, is inside of the blood. This is the perfect one to use if you are really stressed out while dealing with the diabetes, as well.

If you are stuck on picking which essential oil is going to be the best one for you to use, don’t worry. Many times it is a good idea to combine a few of these together and see how they work. You can combine lavender with myrrh for example in order to receive some of its calming effects, as well as to deal with the high blood sugars. Many times, adding three or four of these together will really help to get the results that you would like.

Essential oils are becoming a big part of the health and fitness world because they are really effective in doing their jobs without introducing some of the harmful side effects that we find with our traditional medicines. When you add these with some good supplements, a good diet, and proper exercise, you are going to get all the results that you want and help reverse your Type-2 diabetes in no time.
