Natural Migraine Relief - How Essential Oils Can Help
We get it. Sometimes, nothing is going to kill your throbbing headache like some super strong medication. BUT, have you ever considered trying a more natural route first?
Believe it or not, certain essential oils can offer incredible relief for migraine sufferers - ranging from calming the stress that causes the migraine to aromatically stimulating senses that can do the same. Unlike most medications, an essential oil solution for your headaches is also less likely to bring side effects along with it.
Here are some essential oils that can help relieve the pain and stress, caused by a migraine.
Different essential oils can help with different aspects of a headache. Peppermint is probably one of the most popular essential oils to use for treating a migraine. It has a cooling effect, so you can imagine the relief it would bring if applied directly to the forehead or temples.
Though maybe not directly connected to migraines, I have personally found that peppermint (when breathed in) is great at clearing your nasal passages. All I have to do is unscrew the lid of my essential oil bottle and breathe in and all my passages open up!
Peppermint also has anti-inflammatory properties, so again - GREAT for headaches!
If poor blood circulation is the problem, diluting some rosemary essential oil into a carrier oil like coconut or jojoba oil and applying it to the forehead could help a lot. Pain relief and reducing stress are also possible results of using rosemary.
This pungent spicy essential oil is often associated with Christmas but it also can be incredibly useful for killing a migraine. Clove acts as a pain-reliever as well as an antimicrobial. That means it not only kills off bad bacteria but also can help soothe sore muscles.
Clove is able to do both these things because of a chemical present in it called eugenol. Eugenol is often used by dentists because of its ability to act as an antiseptic that both kills off bacteria AND provides pain relief! Wow! Clove is quite the powerhouse!
