I simply dampen a washcloth and sprinkle on it just a bit of the lavender essential oil, then I roll it up and place it on my suffering spouse's forehead. The Lavender Essential Oil really helps to knock out his tough headaches! Lavender is wonderfully relaxing and just a few drops on the cloth make the whole bedroom smell like a Lavender garden. My husband is able to sleep for a few hours and almost always wakes refreshed and headache free. I hope you'll try Lavender Essential Oil the next time you have a headache. If using the damp washcloth is impractical for you just rub a few drops of oil into your temples and dab a bit under your nose.
Let me know how Lavender helps you! I'd love to hear from you!
