Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

If you're like me you've spent a lot of missed days you can not get back because of debilitating headaches. Year's were spent searching for natural headache relief. I wanted to be rid of my headaches once and for all, naturally. My debilitating headaches started around 1997 after having had surgery to remove a brain tumor. Seemed I had just traded one problem for another one.

So, I tried everything I could think of to get rid of this awful condition. I decided that drugs, with all of the side effects, were just not an option for me. I am not willing to possibly forgo some pain now to have to deal with the horrors of the long-term side effects down the road.

So what did I try? Well I became a Reiki Master. I found that as long as I was lying down, consciously channelling Reiki for myself, the pain would lessen. However the moment I'd stop and try to get up the pain would rush right back. There were times I'd have one headache last for 4-5 days! My headaches often included nausea and vomiting. So by the time it was over I felt weak and wiped out.

I then became a Medical Intuitive. Still did not get rid of the headaches. So I learned Reconnective Healing and then Quantum Touch. Still did not get rid of the headaches. I began getting these type of sessions from other practitioners. Then I searched for World known healers. One was a woman in England, the man from Croatia, then also trips to Brazil to see John of God. I did have some miraculous experiences from John of God, but it had no effect on the headaches.

So what else? I tried chiropractic, acupuncture, QiGong, Chinese herbs, other types of herbs, homeopathy, meditation, yoga, sungazing. But still, seemed like nothing existed that could help.

I took methylxanthines and nightshades out of my diet and got much relief. However, it seemed that on overcast or drizzly days I'd still get a debilitating headache. I guess barometric pressure is also one of my triggers.

What else could there possibly be that I hadn't tried. In fall of 2013 I became a member of Young Living and signed up as a Young Living Distributor.

After getting a headache one day I decided to try some oils. I tried Peppermint and Lavender and the Stress Away oil blend. No results from any of these oils. I tried the Peace & Calming oil blend, no results. So I was discovering what did not work. So what did work for me?

The next time I got a headache I decided to try a blend called the Deep Relief oil blend. I put 3-5 drops on the back of my neck and across the base of my skull. I also put it on the top and sides of my head. Then after a minute or so I put a drop of Copaiba under my nose and across my forehead. I then put Copaiba over everywhere I had put the Deep Relief.

I had been feeling very nauseated so I drank about an oz of NingXia Red juice. Within the hour MY HEADACHE WAS GONE! I have repeated this many times and it's worked for me!

A few times I have used PanAway instead of the Deep Relief, and that now has worked too for me. After an hour it was mostly gone so I repeated the regimen and that got rid of it. So within 1-2 hours I can now get rid of a headache. I only wish I had discovered these oils years ago.

Well, it's now been since Early December 2013 that I've even had a headache!

Seems like I just don't get them anymore. WooHoo! Life without headaches!

What a blessing!

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
2.Associated topics: headache — "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.Associated topics: tumor-/-growth-/-neuroma — Frankincense and myrrh showed anticancer effects.Link
4.Associated topics: headache — "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.Associated topics: headache — "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
6.Associated topics: headache — "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
7.Associated topics: headache — "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
8.Associated topics: surgery-(Post-operative-recovery) — "Herbalists treat skin ailments, such as fungal infections (like candidiasis), wounds, eczema, and acne, with lavender oil. It is also used in a healing bath for joint and muscle pain. One study evaluating treatments for children with eczema found [that] it was therapeutic touch from the mother that improved symptoms; in other words, massage with and without essential oils (including lavender) both reduced the dry, scaly skin lesions. Another study found that lavender oil may improve pain control after surgery."Link
