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.

I have suffered from ocular migraines in my right eye for the past 40 years. These are painless. The only problem is that I lose anywhere from 40-90% of my vision in my right eye. It takes from 5-20 minutes to get all the vision restored. This makes it very difficult to drive when one hits.

While at my first essential oil class, a girl said she used Frankincense around the orbit of her eyes for wrinkles. Shortly after using it, she had to go to the optometrist because her glasses weren't working any longer. The doctor said her vision had improved in one of her eyes.

So I decided to give it a try. Just 2 days after putting it around my eyes, I had an ocular migraine. It was totally different from what I had ever experienced. It only lasted a second.

I am happy to say that I have not lost my vision since then. I do still get the pressure associated with the migraines... just no loss of vision! I was having these several times per week. I praise God that he led me to these oils!

Supporting Scientific Studies
1."Researchers report that carnosic acid, a component of the herb[s] rosemary [and sage], promotes eye health. The team found that carnosic acid protects retinas from degeneration and toxicity.... Their findings suggest that carnosic acid may have clinical applications for the outer retina, including age-related macular degeneration."Link
2."This controlled study showed for the first time that a 10% peppermint oil in ethanol solution efficiently alleviates tension-type headache. Peppermint oil thus proves to be a well-tolerated and cost-effective alternative to usual therapies."Link
3."Peppermint and its active ingredient menthol have long been used for the treatment of various pain conditions including headache.... Menthol solution can be an efficacious, safe and tolerable therapeutic option for the abortive treatment of migraine."Link
4."We report on a patient whose severe post-ECT headaches responded completely to methyl salicylate [wintergreen] ointment, applied to the area of his temporalis and masseter muscles. Topical methyl salicylate is generally well tolerated and may be a viable option for some patients with post-ECT headache."Link
5."Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic [anxiety] drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antihypertensive [high blood pressure], antimicrobial, analgesic [pain] agent as well as a wound healing accelerator.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
