Easing Headaches with Aromatherapy


Green Eggs and GoatsI get a lot of headaches. They always seem to hit at the most inconvenient times and can range anywhere from a mild annoyance to a full-blown migraine. The more I learn about natural living, however, the less comfortable I am with heading for a bottle of pain reliever at the first sign of pain. After some online research and quite a bit of trial and error, I have found something that helps, at least if I am at home when the headache strikes:  aromatherapy

Essential Oils with Diffuser

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, aromatherapy is the use of natural oils that have a pleasant smell to make a person feel better.

These days, when I feel a headache coming on, I reach for my aromatherapy. I bought my simple diffuser for less than $4 at my local health food store, but they can be upwards of $100 for fancy electric versions. 

I light a tea candle in the bottom, pour a little water in the well at the top and add a few drops each of lavender and peppermint essential oils. You might find another blend works for you, but this one seems to begin easing my headaches right away. 

My next plan is to try blending these two oils with a carrier oil, and pouring it into a roll -on bottle to keep with me in my purse.

A friend of mine made up something for me that was so simple and very portable to help me with my migraines. She put the essential oils for headaches on a cotton ball and put in zip lock bag. Just slightly open bag to take a few whiffs. Simple and easy 😃
