Yesterday, I had a bit of a boozy brunch, which turned into a few more cocktails into the evening! 🍸🍹🥂
This morning, at around 5am I woke up with a splitting headache. Out of habit, I went to the kitchen drawer and took 2 prescription strength co-codamol (codeine and paracetamol) and went back to sleep.
A few hours later I woke up and the headache had returned. This time, instead of reaching for tablets, I reached for my bottle of peppermint essential oil. 1 drop in water as a refreshing drink, and 2 drops into the palms of my hands to inhale deeply and rub on my temples and forehead.
WOW! It was almost too much on my head, so strong I could feel the tingle! 1 drop would have been enough. The drink was great and I definitely felt awake afterwards.
The best part, the headache completely disappeared within about 3 minutes! I almost could not believe it!
The more I LIVE our oils, the more I LOVE our oils! ☘💧💪🏼 Chris
