Using Essential Oils For Headaches

Unfortunately, I get headaches ALL the time and I don’t like to go straight to Excedrin migraine for relief. Instead, I look for natural remedies to ease the tension such as yoga and essential oils. Here are a few oils you can use to target specific types of headaches. I found this extremely helpful.

Migraine Headaches
Migraines can be triggered by stress, anxiety, sleep deprivation and hormonal changes.
Massage lavender or peppermint oil into the temples and back of neck to relieve migraine headaches and ease feelings of nausea and anxiety.

Tension Headaches
Use eucalyptus or peppermint oil on the temples, forehead and wrists to alleviate stress and reduce tension. To ease the mind, add 5-10 drops of lavender oil to a warm water bath.

Sinus Headaches
Use eucalyptus oil on the chest, top of nose and temples to open up the nasal passages and relieve sinus tension.

Sugar Headache
This is pain that is caused by low blood sugar levels. Combine equal parts of lavender, rosemary and coconut oil and apply to the back of neck, temples and forehead. Or take one drop of rosemary with a smoothie or cup of soup.
