Millions of Americans suffer from migraine headaches, which are so painful that they can rob you of quality of life. Migraine symptoms include a pounding headache, nausea, vomiting, and light sensitivity. Thankfully, there is a natural solution for migraine sufferers in essential oils, which work to relieve
migraine pain in three key ways.
First, the most common trigger of migraine headaches is stress. Inhaling essential oils triggers a positive emotional and physical response by stimulating your body's limbic (emotional) and endocrine (hormonal) systems. For example, when you inhale Lavender & Helichrysum essential oils, they immediately calm your nervous system and relax your muscles. Thus, essential oils can also play a major role in migraine avoidance. When you feel a stressful emotional response, open the little bottle and inhale deeply. You will feel an immediate change.
Second, many essential oils have powerful pain relieving properties.
Peppermint essential oil, for example, has been shown to block channels that transmit pain signals – without the side effects of drugs! The best way to get this result near the location of the migraine is to inhale deeply or rub the diluted oil on the site of the most intense pain.
Third, anyone who has experienced a migraine will tell you that they can almost feel the swelling of the blood cells in their brain. Inflammation is both a cause and symptom of migraines.
Essential oils, like Helichrysum, contain the most powerful anti-inflammatories known to man --attacking the swelling deep within our tissues at the site of the pain. Studies show that Helichrysum essential oils causes inflammatory enzyme inhibition, free-radical scavenging activity and corticoid-like effects.

(Lavender, Helichrysum & Peppermint) along with a golden jojoba oil for deep
penetration and fast migraine relief. The bottle is small and discrete.
