How to relieve a Migraine with Essential Oils

How To Relieve a Migraine Using Essential Oils? Do you suffer from Migraines?  I do.  In January 2013 I started using essential oils on a daily basis and began using them to treat my migraine pain naturally. This is an all-natural method for migraine relief that really works for me.

I would say that this method will vary on each individual because migraine triggers and treatment are so unique.  This is not a method of substitution for prescription treatment.  Always consult your physician before switching or trying a new treatment.

How To Relieve a Migraine Using Essential Oils:

  • Frankincense Essential Oil
  • Lavender Essential Oil
  • Marjoram Essential Oil
  • Peppermint Essential Oil
  • Rosemary Essential Oil
  • Ylang Ylang Essential Oil

Migraines are so individual and varied that the oils to use will also vary. These oils have worked for others.  My personal “cocktail of choice” actually includes a combination of Frankincense, Ylang Ylang and Peppermint.

The best advice is to start treating as soon as any warning appears.

  • 1 – 2 drops of Frankincense Essential Oil on your finger and rub on the roof of your mouth
  • Rub Peppermint Essential Oil on your temples
  • Breathe Ginger Essential Oil if you are nauseous.

Repeat every 15 minutes – 2 hours as long as necessary. Nap if your situation allows.

  1. I’ve heard about the peppermint oil for help with migraine, but i need to test the other ones now because the peppermint itself did not do much for me. Maybe ill be lucky and ill find my combination.

  2. I just found this post via Pinterest and I’m so excited about it! You said that you use a drop of frankincense on the roof of your mouth, which I’ve actually read before, but how do you use peppermint and ylang-ylang for migraines?

    1. On the head for the peppermint and on the wrist for the ylang-ylang. I swear by this!
