Headaches are the consequence of the membranes and blood vessels around the brain and the scalp muscles tightening or extending.
Headaches and Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy and essential oils can help the pain due to headaches by helping in relaxing these muscles that are tight. Blend the mixture below and lightly massage into your temples, scalp and back of your neck. Find a quiet place where you could lay down and relax with your eyes shut, preferably with an eye bag placed over your eyes. Breath deeply and enjoy the aroma of the essential oils and texture them relaxing all of your tightness leaving you feeling calm and discharging any pain.
If you suffer from headaches you know how debilitating they can sometimes be.
