Essential Oils To Help With Headache

Self-Care & WellnessEssential Oils To Help With Headache

Essential oils are great natural home remedies that have been shown to be highly effective in relieving both headaches and migraine attacks
Just like conventional medications for headaches and migraines, essential oils are effective in reducing inflammation and pain – but without any of the negative side effects to your health. Many oils also have a calming effect on your body and can even improve blood circulation to your brain, which are essential when dealing with headaches.

Essential oils – Best for headaches & migraines

‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎

Peppermint Essential Oil

Peppermint oil is one of the most commonly used essential oils to treat headaches and migraine attacks. It contains menthol, which can help relax muscles and ease the pain.
A  study found that diluted peppermint oil was as effective as aspirin and paracetamol in reducing tension headaches. Another study found that a menthol gel (44% of peppermint is menthol) applied to the back of the neck decreased pain intensity after 2 hours and may help in treating an acute migraine attack.

Lavender Essential Oil

As a natural anti-inflammatory and analgesic, lavender oil is most well-known for its sedative and calming properties, so if your headaches are caused by stress and anxiety, this may be your answer for some quick relief, especially before you go to sleep.
There is strong evidence that lavender essential oil can help treat headaches and migraines. One study found that inhaling lavender provided relief in the early stages of acute attacks by helping with a significant reduction in pain after only 15 minutes.
Another study in the journal European Neurology showed that 71% of patients’ migraine attacks were resolved or partially resolved by inhaling lavender.
