Headaches are unpredictable. Sometimes it shows up uninvited even when you feel fine. But that is because there are different types of headaches, even those with unknown causes.
But the good news is that it is easy to get rid of. Essential oils are a natural, easy way to get rid of different types of headaches.
Essential oils help to ease, if not, cure the pounding headaches. But different essential oils offer different benefits, hence they are suitable for different types of headaches.
Lavender oil is good for migraines and stress headaches as it is calming, has a sedative nature, aid in relieving pain and is anti-inflammatory. Its sedative nature is what eases the headaches and lulls you to a more calmed and sort of induced-sleep state. This allows you to get the rest you need and allow some time for the headache to disappear.
Roman Chamomile oil has similar properties to Lavender oil in that it is a pain reliever and has a sedative nature. It is also an antispasmodic that staves off muscle spasms that can cause migraines.
Peppermint oil improves sinus headaches and other sinus symptoms. The menthol provides cooling effects that aid in clearing blocked sinuses. Inhaling peppermint oil also eases sinus headaches due to its antispasmodic, pain-relieving, and anti-inflammatory properties.
Rosemary oil is a good remedy for tension headaches. Its pain-relieving and antispasmodic properties help to ease the tension and pain of the headache. The restorative nature of Rosemary oil also allows you to feel refreshed and significantly better after.
A good sleep or a dark room would be sure to ease some of the discomforts of headaches, especially migraines, but you may find that difficult to do with a constant pounding headache. Inhaling, massaging it (diluted with a carrier oil, of course) onto your temples and wrists or simply adding a few drops in your bath would be sure to ease the headache immediately.
