I've been converted! Review by katd
I suffer from chronic migraines and recently decided to try a more natural approach when my prescribed medications where hit and miss and I kept ending up in the ER to get their "migraine cocktail" (I shudder to think what was in that concoction).
This oil was a part of a blend I made using lavender, frankincense, peppermint, and wintergreen (all of which I purchased from RMO), and I must say that they really help!! When I feel a migraine coming on I just dab a bit on my forehead, temples and back of the neck and the migraine is avoided. When I have a full blown migraine I usually have to apply the blend 3-4 times, but I can also take it with my medications to shorten the duration of the migraine.
It also smells wonderful! (Posted on 10/16/2013)
