Healing Natural Oils for Headaches – A Review
I wrote this blog post while participating in a campaign by BOOMboxNetwork.com on behalf Healing Natural Oils and received payment for my participation. The review and opinions stated here are completely my own.
I've had a preference for natural remedies over conventional drugs for as long as I can remember. I even opted against basic procedure like epidurals – twice – and preferred to give birth “au naturel” rather than have a chemical-laced needle inserted in my spine. I'm pretty sure that the no-epidural thing has to do with my fear of needles, but I do shun most medication too.
Recently, I resisted everyone's suggestion that I take OTC allergy medicine because I knew that the side effects on me would be worse than the cold symptoms I was fighting. Besides, since writing about the dangers of not following daily dosage recommendations while taking common OTC pain killers, I'm even more averse to taking “Western” medications.
All that to explain that I was more than happy to test out the H-Headaches natural oils for headaches sent to me by Healing Natural Oils.
Let me first quickly tell you about the company: Healing Naturals Oils (note: the website is actually called Amoils.com) was started by Ryan and Adam Wasserman who have been working in the health industry for 17 years. They introduced their products 12 years ago with the mission of providing only the finest natural, ethically produced homeopathic products. Their product is made in the U.S.A., using only the best quality, natural therapeutic essential oils available. The company also has strict protocols regarding the purity of its products: no animal testing, no pesticides, herbicides or synthetic materials.
H-Headaches Formula-Natural Remedy For Headaches & Migraine Symptoms
Interestingly – or, predictably? – now that I was welcoming headaches so that I could try the oil, they took their sweet time to manifest. Finally, a couple of weeks after receiving the oils, I got one. I let this tension headache get just bold enough that it was painful and distracting.
I applied the H-Headaches Formula oil as indicated: one to two drops massaged onto each temple and on the back of the neck. The oil can be applied every 30 minutes up to five times a day. In this case, I applied the oil twice and then completely forgot that I even had the headache. Perfect!
How does it work?
The website explains that “the botanicals in H-Headaches Formula provide a natural analgesic effect while the homeopathics work systemically to relieve symptoms such as throbbing head and pain over the eyes. Tension headaches are often accompanied by throbbing and constriction around the forehead. This product is highly effective in treating these headache symptoms and providing fast relief“. The oils are a homeopathic remedy which aims to trigger the body's natural ability to heal itself.
The H-Headaches Formula has worked for me on my headache events since. Unfortunately, I must admit to one event where we were not successful with the oil: my daughter was in the midst of the nastiest migraine of her young life (replete with vomiting and sensitivity to light & noise) and we tried the oil before the migraine was fully engaged. Alas, it seems that it was one of those severe migraine events that nothing can alleviate. Luckily, she was clear – though wiped out – the next day.
Still, as someone who is not usually in the throes of epic migraines, this natural oil worked wonders for me and the little bottle is always within my reach, just in case. I should have kept track of all the Advil and Exedrin not taken because I applied the oil instead. I have saved myself a few dozen pills!
