Solutions For A Migraine Headache

  1. Inhalation Therapy: On a clean cotton ball place 3 – 5 drops of peppermint essential oil, hold the cotton ball at least 12 inches away for the nose and inhale the vapours. Continue to inhale until you feel a noticeable difference. Bearing in mind that peppermint essential oils have a cooling, minty and refreshing aroma. Inhaling peppermint will also help to relieve respiratory issues, like colds, flu, bronchitis, sinus problems and asthma.  It also helps to clear your mind if you are feeling tired and can’t focus.
  2. Another Inhalation Therapy:  Get a diffuser to use in your personal environment.  There are several types to choose from and you can fine them in our Aromatherapy Store Online. There you will find ceramic, reed, electric diffusers and jewellery to dispense the essential oils in your environment of choice.  In the video below, I demonstrate how to use a ceramic diffuser.

3. Topical Massage Blend: In a small glass bowl or container add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, 3-5 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil. Blend together and massage both temples.

Take caution when using essential oils and in this case peppermint essential oil.  Essential Oils are very potent and should not be used directly on the skin undiluted. In addition, you should not use essential oils on children under the age of two years, pregnant women and the elderly.  Please, you should consult an Aromatherapy Practitioner or Aromatherapist before starting any essential oil therapy.  Last, by no means do I suggests that you should ignore or avoid treatment recommended by your family doctor. But rather, use aromatherapy as a preventative treatment that can and will complement or prevent the need for traditional treatments.
