What are headaches?

Most headaches are due to anxiety, stress, physical tension, fatigue, stimulants, allergy, eyestrain, or low blood sugar. Pain results from strain on the head or neck muscles or congestion (too much blood) in the blood vessels supplying them.

There are two types of headaches.

  • Tension headaches usually have a steady, constant, dull pain that starts at the back of the head or in the forehead and spreads over the entire head, giving the sensation of pressure or a feeling that a clamp has been applied to the skull.
  • Migraine headaches are vascular headaches characterized by a throbbing or pounding sharp pain. See the migraine page for help on this one.

Best essential oils for headaches

There are many essential oils that can be used to relieve headaches far more safely than aspirin:

  • The most effective essential oils are Lavender and Peppermint, either used separately or mixed together.
  • Rosemary is another oil, which clears the head and relieves pain, especially if the headache follows a period of mental effort.
  • Lavender can be rubbed neat on the temples (just a few drops), or added to a cold compress and applied to the temples, forehead or the back of the neck. A mixture of Lavender and Peppermint in equal proportions may be even more effective.
  • If the headache is caused by catarrh or sinus infection, inhalations with Lavender, Peppermint, Rosemary or Eucalyptus will usually be very effective in both relieving the headache and clearing the congestion that is causing it. All these oils are antiseptic, and will combat the nasal infection as well as giving immediate relief of symptoms.
