Natural Headache Relief

Posted on

I think we can all agree that we are over medicated here in the US. For that reason, I wanted to share a little recipe that you can use to bring headache relief naturally.

I have used, and continue to use, this mixture to fight off those oh so annoying headaches.

Depending on the headache, sometimes it completely alleviates it and sometimes it just takes the edge off so that I can function.

The key is in peppermint oil (extract). Peppermint oil is an analgesic–a pain killer–and also a stimulant. For that reason, it brings relief to your headache when applied directly to your temples and/or forehead.

DO NOT APPLY PEPPERMINT OIL ALONE (without a carrier oil). Believe me, when you do -it burns like the dickens and you feel like your eyeballs are gonna burn out of your skull….I am speaking from experience ;)

All you need to do is mix the following:

3-5 drops Peppermint oil extract

1 tablespoon of a carrier oil (olive oil, coconut oil)

I like to put this into a washed out lip balm container or a plastic rollerball bottle and keep it in purse to have on hand when I need it.

OTHER USES:

You can also use apply this mixture to the insides of your wrists to alleviate nausea. ( I used this frequently when I was dealing with morning sickness.)

You can apply this to joints or any other places your may be experiencing pain to bring relief. (NOT internally or on areas with sensitive skin.)

NOTE: I am not a doctor and this is not medical advice. I am just speaking from experience on what has been helpful to me.

Hello There ! My name is Tiffany and I am on the journey to find balance in life! Now, I’m not talking about anything kooky or mystical, but real true balance and health in all areas: physical, spiritual, and emotional. I figured I was not the only one looking for these things, and thus this blog was born. I am not an expert in all things healthy nor is my life 100% balanced. However, I have been on this journey for a quite a few years and have learned some things along the way. One of those things is that the start of a healthy and balanced life is a relationship with Jesus Christ, my Savior, my Friend, my Strong Tower, and my Balance in those completely unbalanced moments. If you’d like more information on knowing Jesus Christ, please click here http://www.gotquestions.org/personal-Savior.html Welcome Friend, I look forward to our journey together.

  2. I’m absolutely going to try this immediately. I’m on more medications than I want to be on already, so usually I just suffer through the headaches rather than take ANOTHER pill, so I can’t wait to try this out. Thanks for the tip!

    • I really hate having to take medicine-especially for headaches so I was so glad when I found this :) It really has worked for me, I hope it does the same for you as well! :)

  3. I’m a LMT and use many essential oils for every day things. You should look up Tei-Fu Oil made my Nature’s Sunshine. I use it when my joints are swollen or inflamed instead of taking something, my husband has used it for an impacted wisdom tooth, and I rub it on my neck to get rid of a migraine. I try to be as natural as possible (natural childbirth, breastfeeding, organic) so not putting medicines in my body is a plus. :)
