If you are looking for a natural headache relief, you can consider aromatherapy as an option. This form of relief option will be useful especially if you have to deal with chronic headaches or migraines as a part of your ongoing life. You can avoid adverse side effects when you reduce your reliance on drugs for headache relief.

Aromatherapy is an ancient healing method of using essential oils. These oils come from plants with healing properties. Essential oils can help to improve health and produce an overall feeling of well being. You can use aromatherapy essential oils in one of two ways. You can either massage them into your skin or simply inhale them. For headache relief, you will want to make sure that the oils are 100% pure.

For headaches, the essential oils that you should use include lavender, peppermint, sandalwood, sweet marjoram or eucalyptus herbal oils. Combinations of these also work well, and it is worthwhile to experiment, finding the most appealing blend for you.

Aromatherapy for headaches can be used in a few different ways. The first way is to place 2 drops of lavender on each of your temples and then rest. In about 20 minutes your headache should be gone. You can also make a facecloth into a compress by adding 5 drops of water to either warm or cold water. Then, place the facecloth in the water. This compress can then be placed on either your face or your neck while you relax.

There are other ways in which you can use aromatherapy for natural headache relief. If you have a diffuser, scent the air for 15 to 20 minutes at a time. You could also relax in a bath of 8 drops of essential oils and 1 teaspoon of unscented bath oil. Another method is to inhale the essential oils out of a bowl of hot water while your head is covered with a cloth, with your eyes closed. If you do this for 5 minutes, your headache may just go away.

Ginger is another essential remedy if you suffer from nausea together with your migraine headaches.

Aromatherapy is an effective natural headache relief that you should really consider exploring. You would need to have an understanding of the different essential oils and how to use them. Get this information from books or see an aromatherapist.
