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.
