The hubby came home last night with one of those brutal headaches where he could barely open his eyes. He tried Tylenol and then two hours later, Ibuprofen. When we got the kids to bed he still looked miserable.
He’s a physician–very skeptical of essential oils. However, he loves me and he lets me treat him occasionally. I put a drop of peppermint and a drop of lavender on his temples–these are good for tension headaches and motion sickness. He had spent the day traveling and I was not sure what was making him feel so bad. Next, I put cedar wood on his forehead and on each big toe, which is a vita flex point for the brain and stimulates melatonin for restful sleep.
He spent about 10 minutes with his eyes closed and then felt better. We were able to catch up on some shows and have a restful night.
Even my biggest skeptic enjoys the aromatherapy and relaxation!
