What Can You Do For a Headache?

Recently, I went to teach an event, and as I arrived, the host apologized for being a little behind because she was suffering with a migraine headache. I proceeded to get out my bottles of oils and handed her our blend (for pain and tension), suggesting she rub some on the back of her neck and temples, which she did. By the time we started the class – 20-25 minutes later – she exclaimed that her headache was almost gone! She was amazed! I suggested she reapply it, which she did, and during the class she enthusiastically exclaimed that her migraine was completely gone! 

Because PastTense is a tension blend, it’s also great for neck stress, shoulder stress, and other types of tension and pain issues!

For some when it comes to headaches, Peppermint essential oil does the trick - quickly and effectively. Others have found best success in applying Peppermint followed by Frankincense essential oil - especially for migraines. Because everyone’s body chemistry is different, sometimes it takes trying one, then another to see what might work best for you.

Peppermint (one of the main ingredients in PastTense blend) is a coolant as well as a stimulant. Thus it makes sense to help lower a temperature (present in a headache) as well as accelerate the circulation process for producing the intended results. That's why it is also very effective for fevers. I particularly like using and recommending Peppermint essential oil for fevers because it doesn't interfere with the body's healing process like medications can.

It's great to be able to understand that the maker of plant medicines is the same maker of our bodies and that's why we can trust them and rely on their effectiveness in their pure, therapeutic form.
