Zen Garden Aromatherapy




Migraine headaches are caused by excessive contraction or dilation of the brain's blood vessels. Migraine headaches produce a severe throbbing pain, centered in the temples or behind one ear. Typically lasting for 2 to 72 hours, Migraines can be triggered by allergies, stress, lack or excess of sleep, or emotional and hormonal changes.

Essential Oils Suggested for Treatment:

Chamomile , Lavender , Marjoram

Suggestions for Use:
  • Add a few drops of essential oil to a compress and place on the head
  • Add 10 drops of essential oil to the bath and soak for fifteen minutes

If Migraine headaches become frequent and persistent, consult your physician.

Massage during a migraine can be more uncomfortable than soothing for the sufferer and is generally not recommended.
