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.

My husband experiences migraines pretty regularly, at least once every two months, and sometimes more frequently.
His migraines begin very deceptively like a headache. Then the light sensitivity and hearing sensitivity begins. Before he knows what is happening, the nausea is present, and the room is spinning.
One afternoon, after watching my husband suffer for an hour or two, out of desperation I mixed up a concoction of essential oils to see if they might provide some migraine relief. I used the following ingredients:
2 drops of PanAway blend
2 drops of Stress Away Roll-On
2 drops of Frankincense
A few drops of coconut oil
I mixed these oils together in my hands and then applied the mixture gently to my husband's temples, forehead, and the back of his neck. I applied what remained to the top of his head.
I then cupped my hands near his nose so that he could inhale the fragrance of the essential oils. He then rested with his eyes closed in our bedroom.
An hour later my husband was up walking around the house, singing praises for these wonderful essential oils. Although his headache was not completely gone, it no longer felt like a migraine. He was so grateful. And so was I to have my sweet hubby back!
This is now our go-to regimen when a migraine begins building or when a headache is present. My husband is very familiar with the warning signs, and we use this mixture as needed. For him, it may even stop a migraine right in its tracks.
Last month we ran out of PanAway essential oil blend, so we recently used Deep Relief Roll-On in its place, along with Stress Away Roll-On and Frankincense. We were pleasantly surprised at the remarkable results. We plan to always keep these essential oils in stock.

|1.||"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|
|2.||"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|
|3.||"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|
|4.||"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|
|5.||"Lavender, mint [peppermint], orange, rose, chamomile, rosemary, and sage were used.... Depression levels in the touch-music-aroma therapy group... showed a larger decrease than in the... control groups [that did not include aromatherapy].... [FMS] symptoms such as restless sleep, headache, morning fatigue, exhaustion, feeling like crying, and bowel complaints were also significantly reduced."||Link|
|6.||"The result for the primary end point was validated by the amelioration of the following secondary end points: headache on bending, frontal headache, sensitivity of pressure points of trigeminal nerve, impairment of general condition, nasal obstruction, and rhinological secretion.... In patients with acute nonpurulent rhinosinusitis, timely treatment with cineole [a.k.a. eucalyptol... found in eucalyptus, camphor laurel, laurus nobilis, tea tree, mugwort, basil, wormwood, rosemary, sage, and cannabis] is effective and safe before antibiotics are indicated."||Link|
