The Best Essential Oils for Migraine

Last updated: December 2022

I consider essential oils to be like food – another gift from nature to support us in maintaining good health or even healing our bodies. So, I decided to explore them to see if they could help in managing migraine.

Which essential oils help me?

Personally, I find them helpful to cut the edge of a migraine and ward off the smaller chronic headaches. Of course, not all essential oils are the same. Peppermint and lavender tend to be the most broadly used for headaches. You can use them aromatically or topically.
