Essential oils are great for headache relief. I was inspired to write this after starting my morning with a splitting headache. I really thought a good night’s sleep would take care of it but I was so wrong! There is nothing worse than starting your day with a bad tension headache.
Essential oils to the rescue!
I trust and use Young Living Essential Oils. The Premium Starter kits contains a versatile set of essential oils including Lavender and Peppermint which by themselves have hundreds of uses. I rubbed Lavender and Peppermint on my temples and a little between my hands. Next I rubbed the back of my neck and up. This is where I really felt a lot of tension. Then I took a nice deep breath. Over the next couple of hours, I felt a lot better. Lavender is incredibly calming and Peppermint invigorates. Try it the next time you feel tension.
