Hi there I'm Trina Sims of Green Star Herbs and today I'm going to tell you about some home remedies for migraine headaches. Aroma therapy can be very effective in preventing the onset or short circuiting a migraine attack. A number of essential oils are useful for this purpose. Simply place a few drops of an appropriate essential oil on a warm moist wash cloth and breath through that for a few minutes. It may take five minutes or so have a little patience. Some of the oils that are appropriate for this use are lavender, frankincense, sandalwood, chamomile, and peppermint. Acupressure is another good option. There is good information available on a number of various acupressure sites that can be helpful to stop a migraine headache. Most of this information is available online. Check out those sites and try those points when you don't have a migraine you'll get an effect. Hold the points for a few minutes and see how you feel. You may find one that resonates with you immediately. Some other options are herbs that may help alleviate a migraine, including ginger, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and ginkgo. Your local herb shop is also likely to have a blend that they make here, that's effected for headache, or a commercial liquid extract can also be useful. Corsaten, which can be encapsulated, can be very helpful in preventing or lessening the frequency of migraine headaches, especially those associated with food allergies. Make sure you're getting enough magnesium in your diet. Magnesium depletion has been associated with a rise in migraines. And one final note, if you have nausea associated with your migraine go ahead and throw up and then of course rinse your mouth afterwards to prevent damage to the tooth enamel. Sometimes this will lessen the intensity or stop the migraine all together. I hope this information has been helpful to you. Thank you.
