See Ya Later Nasty Headache!!
I always try my best to work with holistic modalities to dissolve any issues within my body! The other day I experienced a Migraine... and it made me think that others might not know of holistic ways to heal themselves from a headache. So I decided to share what works for me in hopes to help you!
We all get headaches or migraines from time to time…and they are NEVER fun!!
So how can you get rid of a headache/mirgraaine holistically?
Read on to learn more!
Now for me, I usually don’t get migraines all that often. It’s something that is occasional…and for that I am forever grateful. However, it’s never a fun process! I would say I might get them about 2-3 times per year.
For me, I have come to realized that it’s usually due to a few different things... it's either from a smell, a spiritual download, or a hormonal imbalance. The only reason why I have come to that conclusion of the hormonal thing is b/c I’ve tracked when they have happened….example: where I was in my cycle (ovulation/fertile, etc). and sure enough…they always seem to happen around the same time!!
Sometimes we get headaches/migraines from stress or smells as well, (this one happens to me when I'm around the new tire smell....eeewww!)
So what can we do to get rid of this discomfort!! Well, as I like to say: "There's a Crystal for That!!"
Yep... working with Crystals is one way, but there are many other options too...
Oh yes... our Crystal Allies!! They are always there, just waiting to assist us when we are need and are ready! So which are the best in this situation? Let's see...
Lapis Lazuli: This beautiful deep blue with Pyrite included Crystal is the BEST of the BEST when
it comes to dissolving migraines! This is my go-to Crystal friend when I have a migraine coming on! Not only does it help stop it in it's tracks, but it also helps me feel more stable when I'm feeling dizzy. It's a must have to cure a headache/migraine and quick!
Amethyst: Most people are familiar with the lovely purple Amethyst! This sweet Crystal will help remove headaches speedy quick!
This is one I like to work with when it's a headache. Let it's calming, relaxing energy intertwine with you to zap that headache goodbye!
Moonstone: If your like me, and are having issues related to hormonal imbalances, this will be your new best friend.
Moonstone is awesome in assisting hormonal balance, but even better... when your on your period, it will help take any cramping discomfort away! I always have one on when it's my Moontime. So consider this beauty the next time it's yours too!
You now know which Crystals will help assist you, but now what?
Best thing to do is hold the Crystal on your 3rd eye!
The other thing I do is just put it where it hurts. Within about 10-15 mins. you will notice the discomfort fades away!
I then like to carry that Crystal on me the rest of the day to help.

There are many Essential Oils that can assist us when a headache or migraine strikes! I have made a Potion that I call "Calm Diggy-Diggy." It's a pretty popular Potion of mine. I made it to help calm and relax you...but did you know it also helps that headache take a hike too? True story! When ever I feel a headache/migraine coming on, I always reach for my "Calm Diggy-Diggy" Potion and roll it on my forehead (3rd eye & temples). It really does make a difference!
If your interested in getting a hold of this Potion, you can order online!
Essential Oils are the oils from different plants offering us amazing health benefits!
Other Essential Oils that will help:
Lavender: This calming, relaxing essential oil is also great at getting rid of headaches. Just rub it on your head where it hurts. *Make sure you add a drop to a base oil like Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, etc.*
Rosemary: Looking for something that is traditionally used? Try Rosemary! It's been used for years to treat headaches and improve circulation. It has the ability to reduce pain, as well as has anti-inflammatory & pain relieving properties. *Note: Not advised if you have epilepsy, or are pregnant/nursing.*
Peppermint: Appling a small amount to your temples and forehead gives relief, especially from tension headaches. The active ingredient is menthol, which helps treat migraines too!
How to Use Essential Oils:
Apply: Using a base oil, add a small amount (1 drop) to your palm. Rub into forehead (3rd eye) and temples.
Inhale: Just inhaling the essential oils from their jar will also help. Just drop a few drops of Essential oil on a tissue and sniff it!
Bath Time: Apply a few drops into your tub full of water! A super extra relaxing way to rid yourself of a headache.

Individual results may vary. If your pregnant, in your 1st trimester, or trying to get pregnant, or nursing...avoid the use of Essential Oils!
Binaural Beats (Hz Music) is one easy way to relief yourself from a headache/migraine. I did this the other day when I had my migraine. I rubbed "Calm Diggy-Diggy" on my forehead/temples then put in my earphones, took some deep breath & relaxed listening to it while holding my Lapis Lazuli to my 3rd eye.
I felt the combination worked so well together. In about 15 mins. my migraine which usually has a nasty cycle had subsided and stopped (I didn't loose my vision like normal, I had just started seeing the bright light when I started this process.)
When I closed my eyes while listening to the beat. The side of my head that had the pain... actually I could almost like see the energetic waves the music was putting out. It's hard to explain, but it was cool and it worked!
BBT (Binaural Beats Technology) was discovered in the early 1800's... so you know... it's been around for a little while (hehe). Not only do these beats get rid of headaches, but they also help lower stress, anxiety, improve sleep, enhances concentration and helps you achieve a higher spiritual connection.
The way it works is our brain entrains with the music. Allowing our brains electromagnetic field to enhance.
Give this one a try!
Another thing you can try in regards to Sound Healing is have a Crystal Sound Healing Session!
This is a service I offer, where I play Crystal Singing Bowls to help balance each Chakra.
When a headache/migraine is in play...it's usually the result of a 3rd Eye imbalance. Sound healing and working with Crystals are both beneficial in finding balance again so to have this powerful combination is something that makes huge improvements fast! Sound healing has amazing affects...learn more here!
If you have Crystal Singing Bowls I would recommend playing your 3rd eye & Crown bowls!
3rd Eye: Note: A, 440 Hz.
Crown: Note: B, 494 Hz.
A Crystal Chakra Balancing would also be a great benefit after or during a headache. I have had many clients come to me while they have a headache, by the time their session is over...it's gone! This will allow you total rebalancing within your energetic body, and we all need that from time to time too!
I hope this gave you some ideas for the next time you get a headache/migraine! Here's to loving and living your best life!
