HEADACHES AND MIGRAINE
The challenge with treating headaches and migraine is that there are so many different causes. They can include low blood sugar, stress, hormones, fatigue and dietary factors. Painkillers, although effective, come at a cost to our bodies, in particular, our kidneys and liver. Essential Oils can help with both the immediate pain and the cause of a headache without any damage to our internal organs. This collection includes Peppermint which has been shown in trials to be an excellent muscle relaxant as it has antiphlogistic (reduces inflammation) properties. Peppermint is an effective oil to use as it is a natural analgesic (painkiller) and is mentally uplifting. If your headache occurs in the evening, Lavender is a good choice as it has anti-inflammatory and sedative properties.
