Relaxing Blend of Essential Oils for Headaches

This relaxing blend of essential oils for headaches will reduce inflammation, pain and pressure giving comfort and soothing relief to the person suffering.

Headache can come on when often you need to be at your best and can make the even the easiest of daily routine chores unbearable. A combination of healing essential oils creates a powerful roll-on oil remedy that will relieve infrequent minor headaches, reduce inflammation (which can lead to headaches) and encourages re hydration. If you experience migraines (beyond a headache), discuss them with your doctor to find out the underlying medical issues. Please drink two glasses of filtered water after applying topical application of healing essential oil blend to forehead right below hairline, back of neck and each temples, depending on the location of headache. Apply in slow circular motions, letting the heat from your fingertips gently warm the oil blend as it absorbs.

Why this essential oil blend reduces and heals a headache:

Eucalyptus Essential Oils contain a significant quantity of the oxide 1,8-Cineole. 1,8-Cineole acts as both an anti-inflammatory and a expectorant. Eucalyptus Essential Oil help eases headaches, especially those associated with sinus pressure.

Lavender Essential Oil has a high percentage of esters (linalyl acetate), and therefore, offers anti-inflammatory and mild sedative properties. Lavender essential oil is a good to use if you are trying to alleviate a headache during the nighttime hours or a time period when you can rest.

Peppermint Essential Oil contains a significant amount of menthol. Amongst its many uses, menthol is known to help relax and ease tension headaches and muscular aches and pains. Peppermint Oil is quite stimulating and may interfere with sleeping.
