A synergistic blend of essential oils can be more effective for getting the results you desire than any single essential oil. The pure essential oils I recommend you use in a blend for relief of headache, include: Peppermint, Eucalyptus and Lavender.
METHODS OF APPLICATION:
METHOD 1: Direct inhalation is the method used most in Germany and the one I recommend you use to help you focus, aid your memory retention and increase your productivity.
DIRECTIONS - Dispense 1-3 drops of your pure essential oils blend onto a tissue or cotton ball. Breathe in the essential oil vapors for 30-60 seconds. Breathe in slowly and pause briefly on your inhaled breath. Then slowly exhale, letting go of any tension.
Repeat this slow, rhythmic breathing five more times. Aromatic oils stimulate your olfactory nerves which send a signal to your brain's neuro-receptors, triggering numerous electro-chemical responses.
Research shows that essential oils will remain in your bloodstream for up to 4-6 hours.
METHOD 2: Cool Compress ~ Excellent for topical application to relieve a headache. Disperse 4-8 drops of your essential oil blend in a teaspoon of milk or honey and add to a small stainless steel bowl of "COOL" water. Absorb the "COOL" water into a wash cloth, wring out excess water and apply compress to area of discomfort, repeat when your cloth loses its coolness. You may cover the "COOL" compress with a plastic sheet or a towel to keep it "COOL" longer.
Tension and Migraine Headache may be a symptom of Dehydration. A general guideline for adequate hydration is to drink half your body weight in ounces of pure, fresh water daily.
PLEASE NOTE: There are many cheap, synthetic copies of aromatic oils, but these are not recommended for therapeutic use. For best results purchase the highest quality oils you can possibly find. Use certified organic essential oils, or oils that have been tested and are pesticide free.
Holistic MindBody Therapy, including pure essential oils, are gentle, noninvasive complementary forms of health care for balancing and synchronizing your body, mind and spirit and a natural, safe and effective way to enhance your health and well-being. Holistic health care may produce satisfying results where other methods have failed. Please consult with your physician regarding serious health concerns and do not attempt to self diagnose.
