Migraines and Headaches
Aromatherapy can be an excellent complementary therapy for Migraine. Although it cannot abort a Migraine 100% of the time, it offers some symptomatic stress headache relief and comfort that works in as little as 2 minutes. Aromatherapy is helpful for fighting nausea and helping to relax or get to sleep.
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils extracted from plants for both physiological and psychological treatment. It’s an ancient therapy that began in early civilizations as people started discovering the healing properties of plants. The term “aromatherapy” was first used by French chemist Rene-Maruice Gattefosse in 1928. While working in his family’s perfumer business, Gattefosse discovered that lavender caused a severe burn on his hand to heal more quickly – and without scarring. Dr. Jean Valnet, another French scientist, used essential oils for the successful treatment of medical and psychiatric disorders. Madame Marguerite Maury introduced the first aromatherapy clinics in France, Switzerland, and Britain.
