Aromatherapy Essential Oils
Relax Away That Headache or Migraine
You may be asking yourself what aromatherapy has to do with headaches and migraines. Using Aromatherapy Essential Oils is a great way to improve your mood and the moods of those around you. And since stress and tension are major headache and migraine triggers, this may be just the thing to ease your pain. Also, when we are feeling good our body produces endorphins that make us feel good.
Oh, I know what you are thinking. You probably are one of the great many people who think that aromatherapy essential oil is just a bunch of hype. Well, you could not be more wrong. You see, the brain is effected by all of the senses, but none of them have a more profound effect than the sense of smell. Aromatherapy essential oil takes advantage of the fact that, unlike the other 4 senses, the sense of smell is wired directly in to the brain. This means that it is quite easy to change emotions, and even to evoke past memories just simply through the use of smell. Aromatherapy essential oil is made especially to do just this, with each scent carefully tested to make sure that it creates the desired response in the person inhaling it. You can use aromatherapy essential oil alone, or you can use it in combination with different colors of light, or with soothing music to add to the effect. Either of these can add even more to the effect of the aromatherapy extract.
Of course, having the right atmosphere is pretty key to enjoying the full benefits of using aromatherapy essential oil. Of course, you can put aromatherapy essential oil on, and wear it around town as a fragrance. This can have a nice scent, and maybe even have a little effect on your mood and the moods of those who you come in contact with. But you will not get the full therapeutic effect of aromatherapy essential oil this way. To do that, you need to be able to sit back, relax, and absorb the whole scent. This is the only way to let it work its magic on your psyche. The aromatherapy essential oil is powerful, but it has a very subtle effect, and it is easy to lose this effect if you do not use the extract in the correct manner. Besides that, if you use the aromatherapy essential oil for your everyday scent, it will begin to lose some of its power for you. You will begin to associate it with your day to day life, and as a result, it will lose the power to relax you and put your mind at ease completely.
The Shamanshop.net is a very informative place to shop for essential oils to use for aromatherapy. We have found Lavender a very effective essential oil for easing headache tension. But keep in mind what may work for one person may not for another. So if Lavender doesn't help, try another essential oil such as Sandalwood or Eucalyptus oil, also very popular for relaxation.
