Spring Fever Headache

Ah, winter is over, spring is here, and the air is electric! Trees are in full bloom, kids are counting down the hours till spring break, but all you can think about is this massive headache you have been fighting for 4 days. Did you know there are massage techniques that focus on the neck, head and face that can help? When I am treating this type of problem, I apply peppermint oil on the back of the neck and temples. I also like to add it to a carrier oil (coconut, almond or one of the many other oils that we keep on hand). If you try this out yourself be careful not to apply it near the eyes. I find that this winning combination of treatments really helps alleviate the symptoms and of course makes you feel great!
