Having quite a few clients who suffer from migraines, it was essential that I educated myself on how to help them. There is a group of oils that work great in prevention of these life-interrupting headaches, and oils that go to work once the migraines have started.
Every migraine is different, so it’s important to find the oils that work for you. The most common remedies are:
Start as soon as any warning appears:
Take two drops of Frankincense on your finger and rub it on the roof of your mouth. Use the PastTense oil (in roll on form) on the back of the neck and the base of the skull. This is great oil for tension relief and a must for headaches. Deep Blue is another oil that is great for tension and pain. Apply a couple drops to your temples and forehead. Some people also apply this to their neck and shoulders. If you experience nausea, taking a few drops of DigestZen internally will help calm that. Repeating this process every 15 minutes to 2 hours as long as necessary, and napping, if you can, will help stop the migraine before it starts.
If your migraine has already started:
Use PastTense on the forehead, crown of the head, the neck and shoulders for relief as long as you need it. Peppermint is always good to add for pain and comfort. I use this for my sinus headaches and rub it all over my face; making sure to keep it away from my eyes.
The normal regimen for extreme migraines is narcotics. Sometimes that’s just not practical. People have jobs, children, and responsibilities. To keep your stress levels down it’s always a good idea to defuse lavender in your home. You can also sprinkle it on your bedding for a good nights rest. Keeping in touch with my clients to see how the oils are working for these debilitating headaches, I am so relieved I have been able to help. I have been told the combination of these oils have been a miracle. The use of narcotics due to those extreme migraines has gone down because they have been able to stop the headache before it starts. I’m very thankful I don’t suffer from migraines, and these oils are a must for those that do.
