Over a year ago I randomly started getting migraines multiple times a week, sometimes they would stay for several days at a time. Over time pills had little to no effect so I tend to go for more natural routes to aid my migraine. This roll on stick is great, it doesn’t get rid of my migraines but relieves and relaxes them for a small period of time and since it’s made of oil you don’t really have to worry about reapplying too many times. The peppermint oil causes a cooling effect wherever you put it and essentially acts as a mini ice pack on the go while the lavender and coconut diffuse it so it’s not too strong to the point where your eyes are burning. I find the the rolling applicator spreads too much oil without actually rubbing it in so I like to use the roller just for the application of the oil and then use my fingers to rub it into my temples, forehead or back of the neck. This method also helps me feel the immediate cooling sensation rather than having oil sit on my face and take a few minutes to soak in. The effects of the stick usually last 20-30 minutes for me and then I reapply as needed or until I feel my migraine has died down enough. Also, I personally find that caffeine gets rid of my migraines 90% of the time so if I pair this stick with an expresso or americano (something with high caffeine, normal coffee won’t do it) my migraine will go away within 15-30 minutes. Hope this helps!
I love this thing! The scent is quite strong (and for anyone with olfactory sensitivities, you might want to pass on essential oils in general), but it's not *so* strong that I can't use it without making my own headaches worse. Perfect amount of dilution - it also creates a cooling, menthol-like feeling on the skin, but again, it's not too much, and frankly, just enhances the relaxation, rather than make my skin crawl for the want of it!It doesn't stop a migraine that's already going, and it won't prevent the mental processing problems (such as lingual, auditory, temperature, aura, reaction times, ability to register changes in the environment, etc. for me) that come with, but it does dramatically cut the pain and relax the muscles enough to prevent further tension problems, which means it also cuts down on overall migraine duration.The oil applies very well and a little goes a long way, meaning the small stick lasts for an impressive number of treatments without being too cumbersome to keep in my purse. For $10 (or $16, without Prime), it's a steal - I've never found anything more effective and able to get me back on my feet so quickly, if not allow me to stay up and functional entirely.I'd recommend this product to anyone who suffers migraines (or tension headaches - I've found this helps me with tension, too), provided they're not too sensitive to scents or touch to use it.
I suffer from migraines very frequently. Some hormonal, some caffeine related and some I haven't figured out yet, but they are all distinctly different. I usually take Excedrin for my migraines but lately it hasn't been working. TMI but recently I've had to force myself vomit to help with the nausea brought on by a migraine that hit me at work while still having 14 hrs left of my shift. So one morning being woken up at 5:30 AM due to migraine pain I grabbed this and applied it to my temples. I laid on my back in the dark and within 5 mins the pain in my forehead was gone. 10 minutes, the nausea was gone. I applied some to my neck and that tightness was gone too. I'll be reaching for this from now on.
Years ago a massage therapist I went to used a cream at my temples that helped greatly with headaches & nausea. I have tried to find that scent for years. THIS IS IT!! I use it daily on my temples & the back of neck just below my hairline. It helps 100% with the nausea I suffer from meds I take. Many of my headaches I can prevent from going to a migraine by applying again at start of headache. I take so many meds because of autoimmune disease's that I like not having to pop another pill for my headaches. I am the most skeptical person you will find when it comes to homeopathic or oils etc., but this works!!
This stuff is my go to fix when I feel a migraine coming on. I suffer from sinus headaches and migraines usually once or twice a week. This product I put on each temple, under my nose and on my wrists when I feel the pressure starting and it cuts the pain to a minimum. It seems to stop the worst pain before it has a chance to start. Thank you for a great product! I will buy again and again!
