More and more people are looking for natural ways to improve their health and wellbeing. They try to avoid (OTC) medication.When we suffer from an ailment like migraine or insomnia… there are natural ways to deal with them, like essential oils. One of the most popular and well known oils is Lavender augustifolia.
Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic, antihypertensive, antimicrobial, analgesic agent as well as a wound healing accelerator. Study has been done on Lavender essential oil inhalation for the treatment of migraine in a placebo-controlled clinical trial.
Many people suffer from severe headaches and/or migraines. Stress can be one of the causes, or the food we eat. Too much sugar, salt of fat can be the cause of migraines… sometimes taking us out completely. I have been a patient for many years suffering from severe headaches and sometimes even severe migraines. Taking OTC medicines brought some relief… but in the end (after years of taking them like sweets just to do something about the pain)… I was only adding to the problem. The solution? NOT taking any medicines. Changing diet, more exercising and dealing with the issues that caused me stress.
Today I know medicines can sometimes make you even worse off instead of making you better. So I try to solve any health issues with a more holistic, natural and practical approach! And when it comes to dealing with the headaches or migraine? … I trust on my 100% pure therapeutic Lavender Essential Oil.
The good thing is… there is a lot of research done on the use of essential oils. Like the one described below.
Lavender & Migraine, a study
Patients were asked to inhale the Lavender for 15 minutes and record their headache severity and associated symptoms in 30-min intervals for a total of 2 h. Seventy-one percent responded entirely or partially to Lavender. Based on the study, it suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches.
