One day I was home with my four kids and trying to enjoy the day with them, but a horrible sensation in my head decided to ruin my plans. It felt like I was being stabbed in the forehead and behind my eye, with someone squeezing a band around my head.

I made sure that I drank enough fluids, so I believe that I was not dehydrated. Yet the horrible sensation in my head just would not go away! So I looked in my Essential Oils Pocket Reference for oils that might be able to help, and I decided to try a Lavender and Peppermint combo.

I took 2 drops of each and rubbed along my temples, on my forehead, and at the base of my neck. I rubbed a little under my nose too. I inhaled the pleasant aroma of the two essential oils, closed my eyes, and waited a little bit.

I immediately felt the cooling sensation of the Peppermint essential oil going to work. The pounding started going away after about 40 minutes. What a relief! I was able to get off the couch and do my daily activities and enjoy the time with my kids.
