Migraine Headaches HOL-emblem1-web.GIF (3556 bytes)

Aromatherapy

For migraine headaches, try inhalations, baths, or massages using these essential oils. An aromatherapy massage is very relaxing.

Recommended Oils

Anger, worry, hyperactivity: Chamomile

Sharp, piercing pain, lethargy, despondency: Rosemary, Pepermint

Mild pain, lethargy: Lemon

Colds, sinusitis: Eucalyptus

Hyperactivity, overwork: Sweet marjoram

Also, Lavender, Melissa

If you're at home, massage your face and neck with a solution of ten drops of rosemary essential oil per ounce of carrier oil and use a few drops of rosemary in a diffuser or an aroma lamp to create a soothing atmosphere. If you're on the road, apply a drop or two to a tissue and inhale. Rosemary, especially rosemary verbenon, has a balancing effect on the liver and gall bladder, which tend to be sluggish in people who get migraines.
