Homemade Migraine Remedy

diy migraine remedy

I’ve been suffering from migraines since I was about 9 years old. I have tried every OTC medication and prescription I could try.  OTC can sometimes provide some relief, but I found out a few years ago taking these pain relievers was wrecking my kidneys and liver. I knew I had to find some alternatives because prescription medications never settle well with me and often the side effects were worse than dealing with the actual migraine. I remember there were some herbal/holistic treatments I had tried in the past so I decided to get back to basics.

I am no stranger to essential oils. I first discovered them about 10 years ago when I was trying to clean up my diet and my life. I knew I needed to get my hands on those again. Because I live in a rural area with limited resources I started researching different brands and so much of what I kept stumbling on was MLM companies and all the controversies surrounding them. While I am sure they are good products, getting myself into another MLM / Direct Sales company was not something I wanted to get involved it. For what it’s worth, I have a very dear friend who knows of my painful struggles. She was so kind to send me a sample of Young Living Peppermint oils. I used it to make my initial migraine remedy but did not want to pay the high price or the cost to start the business in order to get a lower price. I know people who are successful with EO sales companies but it just was not something I was interested in.
