This is a general term used to describe an irregular heartbeat, either ‘missing a beat’ or a rapid ‘fluttering’ of the heart. It can be brought on by exercise but is usually associated with high blood- pressure or stress; it is especially common during the menopause.

Inhalations of lavender can help calm a rapidly beating heart, although ylang ylang is recognized as the most useful oil for palpitations.
Regular aromatic bathing and massage using ylang ylang, lavender, neroli, rose or chamomile also help to reduce stress levels and anxiety (which often trigger tachycardia).
