According to the National Headache Foundation, “More than 37 million Americans suffer from migraine, with women being affected three times more often than men.” The pain is caused by brain cells that “release chemicals that irritate and cause swelling of blood vessels on the surface of the brain.” This swelling causes pressure on the membranes around the brain and spreads to other regions of the brain, resulting in a variety of symptoms, varying with each individual.
This gel contains carefully selected essential oils, herbal oils & hydrosols (floral waters) that have chemical components with anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic & analgesic effects which alleviate the painful pulsation and inflammation of migraine (also known as vascular headache) type headaches. A gel base is used to achieve quick absorption, as it penetrates the skin faster than an oil or lotion base. This means fast-acting relief that is made from nature!
Directions: Apply a small amount to forehead, temples, neck or where ever pain is felt. Use as needed. For best results apply as soon as symptoms are felt, right at the onset of the headache.
Contains 100% pure essential oils of Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), German chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla), Peppermint (Mentha piperita) & Helichrysum (Helichrysum italicum), hydrosols of Peppermint & Helichrysum, Lime blossom herbal infusion and a gel base derived of a naturally occurring polysaccharide.
