Using Essential Oils for Headaches

Do you suffer from headaches? If so, Young Living's M-Grain essential oil blend can help with both general headaches and migraine headaches. It contains Marjoram, Lavender, Peppermint, Basil, Roman Chamomile, and Helichrysum.

Both anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic, M-Grain blend relieves pain and tension and promotes relaxation.

M-Grain can be used either neat or diluted with V-6 mixing oil. Gently massage into the base of the skull, forehead, temples, shoulders and back. For deeper penetration, use with a warm compress. You can also diffuse the oil or place a drop or two on your palms and inhale.

Other YL blends to try for headaches include Brain Power, Clarity, Relieve It, PanAway, and Deep Relief.

Single oils include Peppermint (my favorite), Lavender, Roman Chamomile, Idaho Tansy, Basil, Spearmint, Bergamot, Lemongrass or Lemon, and Rosemary.

Headaches can have many different causes, including hormone or sugar imbalances, shortage of oxygen, stress, sinus issues, structural misalignments, and blood pressure concerns. For specific issues, it may be best to create a customized formula, which I will be happy to do for you based on your specific needs.
