Hurting Head? :-/

Asking the question on our Facebook page, "Does your head hurt?" elicited a big response. Suggestions kept coming and we've put these ideas into a blog post! So--have you ever tried a few drops of Cedarwood applied to the back of your neck?!? It helped me!

Because of the oxygenating effects Cedarwood has, it's understandable why it helped me. Also known for oxygenation and often used to help a hurting head is Peppermint. (I heart you Peppermint!!)

Here are a couple other tips:

~Have you ever tried a drop or two of Thieves on your thumb pressed to the roof of your mouth? ;-)

~Ooh, and maybe layer some Copaiba on that?!?
If you didn't know, Copaiba is a fabulous "enhancer" of other essential oils and it has very little taste to it. It's main chemical constituents are alpha humulene and beta caryophyllene. If you have not checked out what those constituents do, you will probably flip your lid after researching that. DO IT!!!! This is something you can take without any prescription or card, and it is THE ONLY FDA approved dietary supplement of this nature. ;-)
~Imbalanced hormones can also cause heads to hurt. Especially if that kinda creeps up in the afternoon.

Progessence™ Plus serum is a pure, harmonizing serum that is designed specifically for women. Along with wild yam and vitamin E, Progessence Plus is formulated with Frankincense, Bergamot, and Peppermint essential oils for optimal results in supporting hormone balance.

~Don't forget to hydrate! I've heard that our brains are 80% water, and when we become dehydrated brain tissue can shrink and actually pull away from the skull. (Doh!!) This triggers pain receptors around the brain.

Dehydration also causes your blood volume to drop which in turn lowers the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain. In response the blood vessels in the brain dilate leading to swelling and inflammation, worsening the headache. Yadda, yadda, yadda...sip on it all day!

~Depending on WHY your head hurts, the video in the following blog may offer you help. If not today, it will another day. If you haven't seen this one, it is a MUST!!

Other ideas mentioned in the post comments were RC applied to the forehead and down the bridge of the nose (AKA 'Megan's exorcism'-LOL!) and lots of mentions of Deep Relief, Panaway as well as M-grain. Stephanie said this, "For the bad ones, I put a drop of Panaway on my temples, on my forehead from my hairline to the bridge of my nose, and the back of my neck. I then layer with a drop of Valor in the same places and a drop of Copaiba. I also put Peppermint on the soles of my feet and a drop of Thieves on the roof of my mouth. Works like a charm for me." Isn't that awesome? :-) And Young Living's blends were created by the absolute master of essential oil blending, Gary Young, who has dedicated his LIFE to learning and sharing God's gifts in plants with US! ;-)

~And finally...if you did not know, this is DOCUMENTED research...some of us may just need a lil...Marvin Gaye! Mmmhm. #SRSLY!! "I have a headache" is no longer a valid excuse! Check out this news article! 
(and just try to get that song out of your head...LOL) Weer, weer, weer....
