How to Use Essential Oils for Headaches

How to Use Essential Oils for Headaches

Chances are you’ve had a headache. After living in Germany for over a decade I’ve become very reserved about using pain relievers. I would rather address the natural signs my body is giving me than cover them up with drugs. For a headache I tend to rather resort to laying down and resting, but this isn’t always a possibility. I’ve been toying with the idea of using essential oils as an alternative to treat headaches and migraines and the studies look good.

In this article we will explore how essential oils can help with headaches. But to learn more about all the OTHER different ways you can use essential oils and herbs for health check out this great deal from Ultimate bundles. They are having a FLASH SALE on December 27th to 28th on the Herbs and Essential Oil Super Bundle 2018. That means the regular priced bundle which is normally $47 will be on sale for $29 but only ONE DAY ONLY

 

Why use Essential Oil for Headaches?

Especially if you get headaches on a regular basis, you may run into some nasty side effects using prescription medication. The warnings range from stomach bleeding to kidney failure.  What a great reason to try out a different natural method that can provide relief and also smell beautifully.

 

Essential oils are another great option to deal with headaches brought on by alcohol consumption. One giant danger people don’t necessarily think of when taking pain relievers is the consumption of alcohol. Did you know that taking even taking a small amount of Tylenol (or Aceteminophen) and alcohol can raise your risk of kidney disease by a giant 123%? According to Web MD even light amounts of alcohol with Aceteminophen can cause horrible effects.  Even taking Ibuprofen or Advil with alcohol has the risk of causing stomach bleeding (yuck).

5 Headache Relieving Essential Oils

 

Lavender Oil:

Not only is lavender a natural relaxant, but it can also help with headaches. In this study it was concluded that when sufferers of migraines inhaled Lavender Oil for 15 minutes, they experienced either complete or partial relief of their headaches.

Rosemary Oil:

Rosemary is a natural anti-inflammatory.  According to DrAxe.com it is stress reducing, and can help with headaches caused by emotional triggers. Rosemary oil can be taken internally by using one drop in tea, water, or soup. Look below for instructions on topical use.

Eucalyptus Oil:

This oil is great for clearing out your congested sinus and nasal airways. Which works especially well when you’re suffering from a headache brought on by sinus pressure. It also reduces inflammation and pain. It has also been widely used as a folk medicine to treat upper respiratory infections, gastritis, and diabetes

Ginger Oil

Known for it’s adaptogenic properties, Ginger can help protect you from physical, emotional, and biological stressors. What’s adaptogenic you may be wondering? It basically means an herb or non – toxic substance that can increase the body’s ability to resist the damaging effects of stress and promote or restore normal physiological functioning. If you apply diluted ginger topically onto sore muscles, you will experience a warm, soothing relief.  Think about rubbing it onto problem areas like the neck, or onto the back when there is tension that can cause headaches.

How to use Essential Oils for Relief of Migraines and Headaches

 

Topically : The chosen oil should be diluted with a carrier oil. Diluted oil can be applied to the temples, inhaled for aromatherapy. You can also use 1-2 drops of your chosen oil on a warm compress on the back of your neck or back.

 

Ingested: Some oils can be ingested (please refer to your product instructions if you’re unsure.) . But remember, a little goes a long way. One to two drops in tea, soup, or water suffice, and stop after a few weeks to give the body a break.

Free Printable Christmas Art That’s About Jesus

Available when you subscribe to Life Lived Intentionally

My sister is a wonderful woman, and I’m so glad we have a great relationship now. She has graciously made us some free Christmas printable art that is instantly downloadable in my FREE Resource Library.

Ten years ago you wouldn’t be hearing about our great relationship. In fact, she was pretty nasty to me… and really angry. That is until she met Jesus. She has always been an example for me of how the Holy Spirit can utterly change a person. Today, I’m happy to say that we are very close and have multiple times over the years actually lived together. While she was both single, and married with a family.

Community living takes relationships to whole new (and awesome) levels.

Hopefully, I’ll be able to convince her soon to share some of her story with us. But until then, these art prints come from her heart and home and I hope you enjoy them!

Here are some other FREE Christmas printable examples of what else is included in the resource library:

Thank you again to my amazing sister who has helped create such beauty.

St. Nicholas Day (or Feast of St. Nicholas)

 

Did you know that there is an actual day to celebrate St. Nicholas? December 6th! In  Germany (and many other nations) celebrate the Saint Nicholas of Myra who was an early Christian Bishop.
In Germany, we all put our boots and shoes outside to be filled with oranges, nuts, apples, and chocolates. Which reminds me, this year we are spending Christmas in Canada so I’m going to miss my mother-in-laws amazing “Nikolaus” bag of goodies she gives to us.

What a pity.

Continuing with St. Nicholas…
This man was incredible and known for his generosity. Though very little is actually known about him, his life and remembrance are surrounded by fantastic legends of miracles he did. He is a father of our Christian faith, and even attended the Council of Nicea!

 

Besides the couple of legends I mentioned in the video, he is possibly most well known for his gift of a dowry for three impoverished sisters. Today, we read  Story of the World Vol. 2 book that Nicholas actually threw bags of gold coin down the impoverished family’s chimney. Perhaps that’s where the whole tale of Santa going down the chimney comes from?

Why is Advent Important?

Why is Advent Important?

What is Advent and why is it important? Before we dive in, I want you to imagine yourself as the president (or prime minister or head of state) of your country. Ready?

What do Presidents and Advent have to do with one another?

Imagine you, Mrs. President, are visiting a foreign country, flying in with a host of dignitaries and attendants. The plane lands on the airstrip, the stairway is attached, and as the door opens, you step out, hand half raised to wave and greet the waiting crowd,

and you see – no one.

Did they really forgot this important visit? It’s inconceivable! But imagine how much more embarrassing it must be for the country you are visiting. No frantic scramble can make up for the fact that they utterly failed to receive you with due honor. Whatever they manage to quickly put together as a formal reception will be piecemeal, hastily assembled, and lacking the careful composition and foresight that would normally be expanded for guests of honor.

Now, I have never heard of a case where a country’s political leadership forgot about the visit of a foreign dignitary. Probably because they all have a very important tool – a calendar. In a way, Advent is like that.

 

A Brief History – The Origins of the word “Advent”

 

Maybe you found it challenging to imagine yourself as President or Chancellor, and you were wondering what that might have to do with Advent. It might surprise you – as it did me – that originally this time was named “epiphaneia”, and this word means the arrival, presence, or visit of a dignitary, particularly of a king or emperor. (January 6 is still celebrated as Epiphany for that reason.)

 

When Latin took over in the Western church, the name for the weeks leading up to Christmas was called tempus adventus Domini – the time of the arrival of the Lord. Hence we got the name Advent for this season.

Maybe you are interested in Advent trivia such as the fact that until 1917, Advent was a time of fasting in the Roman Catholic Church, comparable to Lent. And that this period once used to range from November 11 until January 6 (so no stuffing yourself with sugar cookies all through December).

 

What is Advent and Why is it Important?

Whether such facts intrigue you or not, one question remains: why have such a time at all? Couldn’t we just celebrate Christmas and be happy about it?

It seems to me that the Christians in the first centuries were at least as wise as we, if not wiser. Maybe they saw the danger of Christmas just sneaking up on us and catching us unprepared. Or maybe they thought along the lines of preparing for an important dignitary, making sure that everything – inwardly and outwardly – was ready for his arrival. How embarrassing it would be having to scramble on the last day, and how shameful for the honoured guest to be treated with such a lack of anticipation!

 

Different Historical Advent Traditions

To be sure, the emphasis varied initially. Some highlighted the miracle of the incarnation, underscoring the unfathomable mystery that God entered humanity. Others placed the focus more on the fact that, just as Jesus came once as a baby, he will come again as king of the universe and bring justice and peace forever

Both are important, and both are much too weighty to ponder on single day, sandwiched in between meal preparations and family gatherings.

A Time to Long and a Time to Celebrate

Which is why we have Advent – a season to let the astounding truths of Jesus’ first and second coming soak into our very souls, to incite in us longing and gratefulness and praise. And a time to prepare ourselves for the joyful celebration. The celebration where we remember Him entering our world and becoming like us. And where we celebrate His impending return in glory.

Thank you to my fantastic husband, Simon Goeppert for this guest post!

Symbolic Themes of the Advent Candles

You might notice that in the video I didn’t go into detail about just what each candle can represent. Since there were at least five different variations I decided it would be better to list them here. These candles are traditionally on an Advent wreath but in recent years there has been a rise of more non-traditional forms of containing lighting the candles.

Variation 1:

  • The Prophets’ Candle, symbolizing hope; the Bethlehem Candle, symbolizing faith; the Shepherds’ Candle, symbolizing joy; the Angel’s Candle, symbolizing peace

Variation 2:

  • Hope–Peace–Joy–Love

Variation 3:

  • Faithfulness–Hope–Joy–Love

Variation 4:

  • Prophets–Angels–Shepherds–Magi

Variation 5:

  • Faith–Prepare–Joy–Love

 

As you can see, that’s a lot of love!

 

Family Advent Tip:

Last year we did our own mini Advent Candle lighting ceremony. We sang a song, and lit the candle. You can find many traditional Advent songs by doing a quick google search. Or you can check out this handy list of songs suitable for Advent: https://focusoncampus.org/content/10-advent-songs-to-remind-you-its-not-yet-christmas

 

3 Minute Advent Devotions

My awesome hubby and I recently released a new Simple Advent Devotional Ebook which we are very excited about. We focus on different Advent themes including longing, promise, and fulfillment.

 

DIY Advent Traditions

If you want to customize your Advent wreath and change up the symbolism, I’d say, “Go for it!”. As long as the Spirit of Advent is there and that is: Hope and Anticipation!
