Hi - Yes, peppermint is frequently recommended, often as "a drop massaged on each temple"; melissa essential oil is also suggested for use in this same manner.

And, as our naturopathic consultant always advises: drink way more water than you think you need!

I inhale Lavander straight from the bottle, it gives me almost instant relief from most headachs. Sometimes its so quick I think to myself "thats just not possible". I have had some headachs it didn't work at all on but most of the time it works.

A lot of time headaches are caused by dehydration, so make sure you're drinking plenty of plain fluids. And lavender Oil is a good oil to use if you are trying to alleviate a headache during the evening/nighttime hours.

There are multiple reasons as to why headaches occur, maybe you've had a bit too much to drink the night before and your brain is dehydrated from all that alcohol consumption. Other reasons could be lack of sleep or constant exposure to sunlight (without head protection) or staring at a computer screen for too long.
Simple solutions would include drinking a healthy amount of water as mentioned by previous authors, wearing protective head gear during hot summer days, getting at least 7 hours of sleep and finally taking breaks when using your computer.

Essential oils that have been used to relieve headaches include Eucalyptus Globulus, Citronella, Lavender, Lemongrass, Sweet Marjoram and Peppermint.

Powerful recipes include mixing lavender (8 drops), roman chamomile (4 drops) and apricot kernel (1 oz). Mix the oils together and take 1-4 drops of mixture place upon fingers and massage against forehead, temple and back of the neck.
