Essential oils

Feb 04, 2016 8:50 PM

Last night I had a horrible migraine on top of my CRPS where I thought I was going to puke my dinner up for hours! The only thing that kept me from actually puking was constantly smelling my Peppermint essential oil and having an ice pack on my head.
Usually I'll puke for hours but the oils really helped settle my stomach during the migraine! I just wanted to let others know that if other nausea meds don't work on you, like me, this may help! I hope everyone has a wonderful night of REM sleep and less pain!

I love essential oils! Peppermint has helped me with stomach discomfort and neasea. I use lavender before bed, peppermint or orange in the shower- this helps with energy and depression, I also use sage and others as a rub with a carrier oil, it is said to help with endometriosis and pcos. I feel it helps me with fibro and endometriosis

It's a really good idea to get good essential oils and a book or guide to show u different ways they can be used and what they can be used for! Technically, essential oils can say 100% pure as long as they have at least 3% of that EO. I first got a brand that looked good but after getting them, realized they're diluted. I compared to other brands and some were much stronger. Most are not really "pure" if there's a warning on the bottle saying not to ingest. If you get the good ones, u uduslly can ingest. They do work music though. Different combos have helped me with dry skin, migraines, nausea, fatigue, acne....
