I suffer from migraine headaches from time to time. I was given a migraine prescription last year and I let it expire. Since being introduced to Young Living oils I didn't see a need to keep up on any of my prescriptions. Plus, I hadn't had an episode in over a year so I thought my migraines were a thing of the past. Boy was I wrong.
Two days ago I awoke with a major migraine. I was extremely nauseous and sensitive to light and sound. Every time I tried to even sit up in my bed I was so weak and thought I would be sick. My two older children and husband had already left for the day and I was left alone with my three year old so I knew being sick was not an option.
I dragged myself out of bed and grabbed my Peppermint oil. I was too sick to even apply it to my feet, so I settled with applying it to my neck, temples, forehead and throat. After a few minutes I was well enough to get up and make my son breakfast, turn on the cartoons and then back to bed. I fell asleep for an hour, three year old by my side the whole time.
When I woke up I felt so much better. The nausea was completely gone and just a throbbing headache left. I was able to sip on some water (with the nausea I am usually unable to stomach even fluids) applied the Peppermint again, forehead, temples, back of the neck and layed down again. Within half an hour I was up and about making dinner and doing laundry.
When my older children arrived from school later that day, I was able to take another short nap. This time I awoke a completely different person. The migraine was completely gone! I could not believe it! In the past my migraines have driven me to my bed for up to three days! I am so impressed!
I drank a lot of water the rest of the day and night and applied Peppermint to my feet before going to bed that night for good measure and slept like a baby!
I thank God I was introduced to essential oils! It's literally changed my health and my life!
