Headache and Migraine Treatment – Causes and Natural Remedies

I’ve had headaches and migraines for as long as I can remember. My father told me that when I was a baby I learned to speak, one of the first things I learned to say was that I had a headache. I grew up taking quite a lot of acetaminophen (Tylenol) and ibuprofen (Motrin) regularly for pain relief. While I don’t really like putting drugs into my body, when it comes to intense pain, I find myself turning to anything that brings relief.

The problem with headaches and migraines is that it’s hard to identify why they happen. Sometimes, it’s obvious; your head clogged from sinus pressure or you fell and banged your head pretty hard. But often, they’ll creep up on you within a few hours, until you reach the point where any kind of movement, noise, or bright light feels like a hammer blow to your head.

The years I took painkillers caused liver damage. I do not blame them, because many times I have chosen to put them in my body and I am sure that in the agony of the moment I will do it again. Most of the time they help relieve the pain and sometimes we need to move on to the next moment to continue.

But they are not always helpful. Truth be told, I haven’t been able to find any medicine or natural thing that completely relieved my migraines every time. However, once I have an arsenal of different potions, I’ve found that one of them will work no matter what kind of headache I have right now. Maybe one of these will help you.

Hormonal Headaches

Apply Dragon Time, an essential oil blend from Young Living, directly to the abdomen and lower back.


6 drops of Dragon Time under each foot and on the inside of the ankles

Sinus Congestion Headaches

Peppermint oil can be used in many ways.

Peppermint oil #1

The simplest is to drip a few drops in the palm of your hand, take them to your mouth and nose, and take a few deep breaths. This helps with congestion.

Peppermint oil #2

I usually apply peppermint oil directly to the scalp where the pain is. I do it wherever it hurts the most. But I will also put some in my palm and press a little on my fingertip to apply it above my eyebrows, behind my ears with my mandible and all over my neck.

Be careful not to get it in your eyes, or use that hard finger to rub your eyes afterward. If you’re a little into it, take some vegetable oil and apply it gently to the burned area. It will stop the burning almost instantly.

Peppermint oil #3

I know people who get relief from headaches by putting a drop of peppermint oil on their neck. It didn’t work for me, but I’ve met too many people it works with to be skeptical.

Peppermint oil #4

Mix a drop of peppermint oil into your shampoo and then back into your conditioner. The foam helps the oil to disperse easily all over your head. The tingling feels so good that I don’t want to rinse it off. This feels good even when you don’t have a headache, but if you do, it feels like heaven.

Peppermint oil #5

Inhale: rub the tip of the nose, inhale deeply. Apply neatly on forehead and temples, cheekbones, bridge of nose and around the ears.

Roman chamomile oil

Basically apply to each of the points on the face and neck wherever you feel sinus pressure. This hasn’t helped me at all personally, but we’re all created differently.

low blood sugar

Check your blood sugar. Between 60 and 70, a mild headache may develop. If you’re between 50 and 60, you’re more likely to have a full-blown headache, feeling weak, tired, and irritable. My best friend has a headache when his blood sugar drops. I think he’s lucky because as soon as I eat, the headache goes away.

Migraine and Liver

Using the theory that migraine is liver related, target the liver and head areas on your feet. Apply a few drops of Valor essential oil all over your feet, rubbing vigorously, paying particular attention to the back of the big toe. Apply a drop or two of M-Grain to the back of your big toe and the nail bed. The brain point is on the big toe.

The liver point is on the right foot. If you find the middle of your foot (excluding the toes) and move towards where you stepped on, that’s where you’re rubbing. Here, too, I rub a drop of M-Grain, rubbing it rhythmically for a few minutes. It is easier to rub with a few drops of olive oil.

Then massage the M-Grain at the Liver 3 point on the top of the foot all the way from the big toe to the ankle. Run your finger between these bones, rub the oil.

chemical headache

Toxins from chemicals, such as paint fumes, can cause headaches. Inhaling an essential oil such as peppermint oil can help restore balance. Spreading the oil is particularly effective here.

Dilated Blood Vessels

Caffeine constricts blood vessels. Sometimes just drinking a little coffee or a Coke can help with migraines.

Other things you can try:

Fresh wheatgrass juice

Fresh celery juice

Thieves essential oil blend

Put a drop on your thumb and press it on the roof of your mouth.

Lavender oil and peppermint oil

Apply a drop of lavender oil to your temples and neck. Apply peppermint oil on lavender. Sometimes the combination is stronger than an individual.

grapefruit oil

By itself, it does nothing for me. However, when I apply it on other oils, it intensifies the effect of other oils.

Here’s another recipe for pain [http://www.healthyaromas.com/pain_control.php], Generally. But it can knock you out, so don’t take it if you’re not at home and can’t rest. Valerian is classified as a mild sedative and has a soothing effect on the body. It’s called “Nature’s Valium” for a reason.

20 drops of valerian oil

10 drops of Helichrysum oil

3 drops of Clove oil

3 drops of peppermint oil

Depending on the size of the capsule, fill one or two empty capsules with these oils and swallow with a glass of water.
