Headaches can be a devil to get rid of the natural way, especially when a caffeine boost or sugar fix can seem to bring temporary release.
If you have the chance to be indulgent, a scalp massage, quick nap, plenty of water and even an orgasm can ease the pain. If none of the above will cut it, try flinging Eucalyptus, Cedarwood and Peppermint together. Combine with a carrier oil in the bath or inhale over boiled water with a towel to keep in the steam.
I recently invested in a Soto Aroma Diffuser (madebyzen) and will never go back to burning oils with a candle. This is attractive - think modern day lava lamp with mood lighting - I get lots of compliments and interest when guests see it in use. If you want to use it without oils you have an ioniser to hand. Quite often I just use one oil for a subtle scent and ambience.
This is the perfect accessory for a wind down ritual at the end of the day. Combine with (non toxic) candlelight and a herbal brew.
