Headaches have been the bane of my life. Migraines, cluster migraines, common or "garden" type headaches, the lot! For many years I took more and more and stronger and stronger painkillers. I knew the dangers of this but I simply could not lead a normal life with the level of pain. I tried almost every "natural" headache remedy, some were pretty bizarre! By then, I really believed that nothing would help and just tried to cope as best I could.
We were new to the oils in 2000 and I tried M-Grain but found it nauseated me and did not help.
One day I was out with no painkillers and was in a panic as the was pain getting worse. I had Peppermint and Frankincense with me so used them on my forehead and temples. Before long I felt much better. Because I'd already had the headache for several hours it did not completely stop the pain but enough that I could get home and rest.
From then on, whenever I feel a headache coming on I have used those oils every few minutes until I feel ok. It does not always abort a headache if I am tired or have eaten certain foods but I am much more aware of the "triggers" and can largely control the pain with oils.
Sometimes I use PanAway as well, for a long time I could not stand the smell of it ! Lately I have found it helps if used immediately I feel the symptoms of a headache. I'm so thankful for the relief the oils give me because I know I could not have gone on "living" on painkillers.
