    An onions' organ-sulfur compounds and anti-inflammatory properties helps to combat heart disease, inhibit strokes, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and stimulate the immune system. Not surprising because it is a cousin of garlic.
    Two to three tablespoons of onion essential oil a day was found to lower the systolic levels by an average of 25 points and the diastolic levels by 15 points in hypertension subjects.

    I have written a hub on high blood pressure remedies but I don't think I'd stick with simply an herbal remedy though garlic, hawthorne, L-arginine, and magnesium are often mentioned.

    It also depends on the reason for the high blood pressure. Sometimes even spinal misalignment that responds to chiropractic can reduce blood pressure (if that's the cause!)

    Personally I think that a biofeedback devices, water, and transdermal magnesium hold more likely value. … e-Reviewed

    A recent trial confirms that olive leaf lowers blood pressure as well as the pharmaceutical drug, Catapril. The doseage amounts where 500mg twice a day. I would not combine oilve leaf with your blood pressure meds, it may lower it too much. Which is just as bad as it being too high.

    Another "heart healthy" componet would be reservatol, an element found in red wine, chocolate. (yeah!!!) The french are known to drink red wine, and have less incidence of heart disease, Known as the 'french parody". It also can be taken in supplement form. The study:
    My article about heart health gives other useful information, as well as where to order. A liquid may be used as well. By placing a few drops under the tongue, it bypasses all other organs, and is straight into the blood stream. … irculation  Hope it helps.
