I’m not the kind of person that gets a lot of headaches. But when I do, they are nagging, dull, achy, all day and sometimes all night kind of headaches. Can’t sleep them off. Awful. Terrible. But somehow never bad enough to make me want to take pain relievers. Guess I’d rather suffer than take a pill? I dunno…
You can image how happy I was to learn that oils could be a solution! The first headache I got after receiving my kit, I ran to find out what could work! It turns out, there are tons of options, depending on the type of headache!
*Side note: Many times, the success of oil use boil down to finding the root cause. Often, if you pinpoint the cause of the symptoms (like a hormonal headache vs. a tension headache, or knee pain from arthritis vs. knee pain from banging it on the table), the treatments may be different and may yield better results! So don’t be afraid to dig a little and do some research and trial and error!
Back to headaches. Here’s a handy graphic that shares the common oils for different but common headaches.
I found these to be super helpful! I’ve even found that something as simple as wearing peppermint in my diffuser necklace helps to keep the headaches at bay! I love that! Deep Relief (recommended above for cluster and sinus headaches) works well for all of my headaches!
*Side note number two: I suffer from migraines, but haven’t had any since using oils (almost four months ago!). The next time I have one, I’ll be interested to see which oils for best for me. Or maybe I’ll just never have one again and I’ll never have to find out. Yeah. Let’s go with that one.
Do you use oils for headaches? Share what you’ve used! You might be helping someone else!
DISCLAIMER: The things I share with you are not intended to diagnose, treat, or cure any illness or be a substitute for any medicine. It is true that I have found less need for OTC medicines, but you have to make choices that are right for your family. Another choice I’ve made is to exclusively use Young Living Essential Oils. I believe they are 100% pure without any synthetic additives. That’s huge to me! I have read a lot of material on different essential oil companies and Young Living is what I have chosen. If you choose to use essential oils, I encourage you to do some research and choose the brand that you believe in.
