Reducing Headaches with Aromatherapy

Everyone gets headaches from time to time. The really bad headaches can stop us dead in our tracks. Rather than relying on pharmaceuticals or paying a lot of money for an expensive massage, why not try aromatherapy.

Aromatherapy can be a wonderful solution that can not only cure your current headache but also might reduce stress, anxiety, or the medical origin of your headaches. Some of the best essential oils that have been connected to reducing headaches as well as migraines are:

  1. peppermint
  2. eucalyptus
  3. sandalwood
  4. rosemary

Try mixing any of the above oils in a carrier oil and spread that oil onto your skin, scalp, neck, and temples. Some of the best carrier oils for headaches include almond, avocado,  coconut, apricot kernel and sesame.
