Severe piercing on one or both sides, sensitivity to light, nausea and weakness are some of the consequences of a strong headache that would make us just lie in bed. Migraines and headaches are beginning to torment more and more people, completely blocking normal everyday life.
Sara Crystal, a neurologist and migraine specialist, claims that most headaches are the result of stress, changes in biorhythm, hormonal imbalance and excess caffeine. In addition, a diet rich in chocolate, cheese, nitrates and additives is also a trigger for pain.
“The causes of migraines are often genetic. Every person has their own trigger. That’s why there is no universal solution for migraines.” she stated.

Common causes of headaches:

lack of sleep
alcohol abuse
some drugs
head injuries
dental diseases

In addition, you can smell a piece of cotton wool on which you have applied oil or mixture, spray selected oils from the sprayer around the room you are in or apply a few drops of oil to your pillow.

We also recommend a scented bath, but keep in mind that after bathing in warm water, you can be very sleepy, so warm baths should be avoided if you want to stay awake for a long time.

Aromatherapy can help you with less frequent, milder headaches but it will not cure the underlying causes of frequent, chronic or severe headaches. If you suffer from these disorders, consult your doctor.

Stress is part of everyday life. The problem is that there is no way to avoid it completely. With constant stress throughout our lives, our bodies eventually begin to respond: headaches, insomnia, muscle cramps. All of these symptoms can sometimes lead to heart problems.

So, even if we can’t completely remove the stress from our lives, we can reduce the inconvenience that stress causes. How? By learning to deal with it better. A man is lodged and trapped in his body from which he cannot escape and in which he feels good or bad. Whenever we think, feel, or experience, our body reacts.
With the daily dynamics of life, we all need a break to keep the balance we need. It is often difficult to catch that desired respite in the fast-paced rhythm of life, so essential oils are the perfect natural strength when you need to “stop-time” and take a deep breath of peace and balance.

Aromatherapy helps with stress by directly affecting the limbic and autonomic nervous systems. When we smell something, olfactory or olfactory receptors send a message to the limbic system, which is associated with instincts, moods and emotions. This is one of the reasons why aromatherapy is good for stress, emotional and psychological problems. Stress reduction through aromatherapy is especially effective because the pleasant scent in itself has a calming effect.
