Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.
My head was severely throbbing 4 to 6 times a week. I could not take a preventative, as I was having adverse reactions to the preventative medications. I also was severely limited on the medications I could take to get rid of these occurrences (once I had them) due to an allergy to acetaminophen.
On top of that, the medication I had tried in order to get rid of them made me extremely drowsy. When you have a child that is less than 2 years old, you just cannot be napping when they are awake!
I got my essential oils in May 2014 and had heard of the benefits of Peppermint essential oil for these issues. I decided to start drinking Peppermint essential oil in my water daily.
I started out slowly with 1 drop mixed in 1 liter of water. After a few days of this, my aversion to the Peppermint dissipated some, so I decreased the water to 20 ounces to 1 drop of Peppermint essential oil.
Now in September 2014, I have only had 3 occurrences in 3 months that required "unnatural" intervention. I have had a few other episodes try to materialize. But in such cases I simply added more drops of Peppermint essential oil to my daily Peppermint water (a daily dose sits at 2 drops per 16 or 20 ounces of water, depending on the bottle I grab out of the fridge), or I just dropped a drop or 2 of the Peppermint essential oil directly on my tongue and chased it with a spoonful of local honey.
No more never making plans of playdates for my daughter; no more being afraid I will fall asleep after taking something that causes side effects! It is like a whole new world for me that I can enjoy now.
