I have found that many times headaches and migraines come on when our bodies are acidic. You might want to get some pH strips and just test this out or consider what you’ve been eating or not eating in the hours that led up to the headache. Raw fruits are generally alkalizing, whereas meats are acidic.
Another consideration: Be sure to drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water daily. Adding a citrus essential oil to each glass (never plastic) of water will help to alkalize the water and also help the body to flush toxins. The best way I know to be sure this happens is to figure out the amount of water your body needs and set it out first thing in the morning in glass quart jars or pints. By the end of the day you will be able to see if you are drinking enough or not. This is very simple and has proven to solve a lot of health issues.
Migraine Tonic alkalizes the body, which has helped a number of people eliminate migraines altogether. Drink the tonic every morning for prevention or when you feel a migraine coming on.
1 TB Raw Apple Cider Vinegar (you must use the organic, raw, unfiltered)

1. Your MIGRAINE RELIEF blend really works well for my severe migraines. I just rub a couple of drops on the area of my head that is aching, and within minutes the pain subsides or disappears altogether. I don’t go anywhere without this blend.
2. Migraines seem to be hereditary in our family, even in children. They are usually very severe, with the need for complete silence and darkness. Vomiting is common, too. I was hesitant to try the oils because I thought the smell would bother me, but I finally decided to give it a try one evening as I felt the beginning of a migraine and nausea. I put a couple drops of EUCALYPTUS GLOBULUS, PEPPERMINT and LEMON on my A/C filter. Amazingly, I felt very relaxed and just fell asleep. I slept so soundly that I didn’t wake up until morning, and I felt very refreshed and just fine! I have kept applying these oils to my air filter, and I’ve not had another migraine and all our allergy symptoms have vanished as well.
3. I discovered that my migraines were caused by blood pressure issues and CIRCULATION applied to neck, heart area and wrists not only brought the blood pressure into balance, but my migraines disappeared too.
4. My mother has suffered with frequent migraines for years, and since using FrequenSea and their Thunder drink, she hardly ever gets a headache. I've never had "frequent" migraines, but have had them more and more as I've aged, but mine all but disappeared with taking FrequenSea. If I do get a headache, I can eat two of their chocolate wafers and the headache melts away. It's pretty amazing, but natural chocolate (chocolate was not something we normally ate around here) is very high in antioxidants. I'm not really sure what happens, but I've shared this with others and eating two-three wafers has melted even severe migraines.

5. I have seldom had migraines in my life, but when I did, the only oil that would touch it was PAIN-X. The most effective way to use it when I was so sick and could hardly stand,was to rub Pain-X all over my head and get in the shower, which really seemed to drive the oil in. I'd get out of the shower free of pain!
6. I believe that migraines are caused by lack of oxygen, so I use FRANKINCENSE to increase oxygen in my brain. I also know for a fact that Linda is right about water. Hydration may the the single most important component in the cure.
7. Magnesium deficiency may be a key factor in frequent bouts of migraines.
8. I banished my migraines by putting PEPPERMINT on my temples. This does tend to seep into the eyes and they water and may burn a bit, but there is no damage done. I also apply CYPRESS to my brain stem. These two oils work wonders for me.
9. I used to put PEPPERMINT on my temples for my migraines, but found that taking it in capsules works far better. The first capsule doesn’t always completely wipe it out, but a second one in ½ hour does.
10. I have taken Advil for years due to migraine headaches. Today my boss asked me to try your Migraine Relief blend. After 3 days of battling a migraine, my headache was gone in just a moment. ~ L.M.B.
