Soothing Oils to Relieve Head Tensions
Hormonal changes, hunger, dehydration, lack of sleep, alcohol consumption, sensory stimuli, stress, weather changes, and even unusually strong smells are the common themes that easily trigger the pulsating pain in one’s head. Head tensions are ruthless, but the good news is there are multiple ways to relieve them!
Knowing your triggers can help avoid head tension. It might be a bit of overrated advice, but relaxing and taking a break solves most of our problems, and this is one of those problems. Eating wisely, exercising regularly, and even turning off the lights help ease head tension.
In the spirit of taking a break, here are some easy natural solutions you can adapt at home!
What you need
PastTense® Oil (Tension Blend), and Helichrysum. PastTense Oil is a combination of Wintergreen, Lavender, Peppermint, Frankincense, Cilantro, Marjoram, Roman Chamomile, Basil, and Rosemary which creates a minty blend that gives a soothing effect. The calming properties of ester in Helichrysum along with its uplifting scent help reduce feelings of mental fatigue.
Tip: Massage PastTense® Oil to shoulders, neck, and back for a soothing sensation and apply a drop of Helichrysum to the forehead, neck, and temples at the early onset of discomfort.
