You'll need this and this...
This particular remedy is for those times when you need a little more than the standard technique of a "stop and drop" application of essential oil! Sometimes when we're plagued by persistent headaches, it's our body trying to tell us to slow down and rest the mind AND, the body! That's tough to do I know but, it's always a very good idea to listen to your body.
Fill the bath with very warm water. Grab a clean towel, hand towel size works well and, a bottle of doTERRA Peppermint essential oil. Why doTERRA? Because doTERRA essential oils are nothing but pure plant essence, no traces of impurities or additives therefore, 100% therapeutic. Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade, in fact.
Peppermint essential oil can be used for it's calming properties to relieve stress and tension. It's also effective for relieving headaches associated with stress and or digestive upset, as well as for migraines.
Once the bath is full, and you can slide down into the warm water, grab your towel and get it wet. Wring it out and drip 4 to 5 drops of peppermint in the middle of the towel...an inch apart. Place the very warm, minty towel around the back of your neck so that the Peppermint is exposed to your skin. Lay back, close your eyes and relax your mind and body. Breathe deeply to let the blend of steam and Peppermint expand your lungs and oxygenate your blood.
The beauty of this migraine treatment is twofold; while you're relieving stress and pain naturally, you're also quieting your mind for a few meditative moments. This is important to note, as it's yet another lesson that essential oils can teach us. What is that lesson pray tell?
