Beat Headaches with Peppermint & Lavender Oils! - LivingThruGrace Quick Fix!!

Peppermint is a common used oil for treating headaches. An essential oil is a concentrated liquid made from the whole plant parts such as leaves, flowers, stems even the roots and bark. Many essential oils have been used to treat various ailments for centuries.

I've used essentials oils for years now, in my home cleaning and body products and peppermint has been one of my rock stars for helping me breathe better via an oil diffuser in my home [ along with eucalyptus, lavender, and tea tree oils! :() I place all of these oils in my diffuser together and they work to make breath management easier during asthma and sinus flares! ]

Peppermint contains menthol which helps the muscles in the body to relax and ease pain. Lavender oil is also a powerful pain reducer for headaches, tension headaches and migraines, and has been shown to be very effective with the acute management of migraine headaches.

Both Peppermint and Lavender oils can be applied to the body, [ I prefer to use a carrier oil like coconut, but whatever oil you have on hand is fine ] before applying directly onto the skin to prevent skin irritation, in fact it's greatly recommended. Apply onto the earlobe and { the essential oil with a bit of carrier oil } behind the entire ear and onto your temples and forehead if desired. Generally in about 15 minutes relief should be felt. Reapply as necessary.

I and my husband can attest to Peppermint oils for headache relief. We were informed by our pharmacist [ who when pregnant couldn't or didn't want to use NSAID's or other OTC meds at the time ], and we're forever grateful for this tip! We always keep a supply of peppermint [and lavender too] on deck!

These essential oils can also be diffused via an oil diffuser, or even added to a warm bath to obtain the benefits.

I love it when there are alternatives to OTC drugs to remedy common health issues!! Thank God, literally for essential oils and their powers too help manage our health and add to our total wellness!

All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad. ~Psalm 45:8

And for the cleansing of the house he shall take two small birds, with cedarwood and scarlet yarn and hyssop, ~Leviticus 14:6

Essential oils: Blessings!!
