• Essential Oils Used For Headaches

Essential oils to use when you have a headache

 

Real talk: Last night was a rough one. The type of night I’m sure many of you have experienced. Not sure if I should blame the extra precipitation (snow), the barometric pressure, my sore neck….or (honesty time) that fact that I simply did not take in my daily allotment of water the day prior. (DRINK YOUR WATER PEOPLE)

However this headache came to be (most likely a combination of ALL factors) there I was in the middle of the night, head pounding, equilibrium spinning, heavy, sensitivity to light, auras…all of it. Normally I would turn to Wyndmere’s Head Aide blend, it’s my favorite. The thing is, I couldn’t find it.

Luckily, I do always have a diffuser plugged in next to my bed and my instincts immediately had me slowly moving through a quiet, sleepy house in search of relief. Once in front of my EO shelf, I was able to quickly pull THREE of my most commonly used EOs - Peppermint, Lavender, and Eucalyptus!

I simply added 3 drops Peppermint, 4 drops Lavender and 1 drop of Eucalyptus to my diffuser and started to deeply breathe in and out hoping for relief. As I lay in bed with tears running down my face, I noticed that with every inhale I could feel the EOs working hard to help my body feel better.

What I learned from this is that even though I love our Head Aide Roll-on, use of the right oils in a diffuser provides prolonged comfort. When faced with unreal pain and lethargy it’s nice to be able to just set it up and let it go all night long. Our Classic Nebulizer goes for hours and can be pointed in the direction you need! It’s the “Cadillac” of diffusers in my personal opinion. ;)
