M-Grain Essential Oil

“Oh, my head!” Do you suffer from headaches or even worse, migraines? What do most people do when they have “pain” of most any sort? Yep, grab a tylenol, aspirin, advil, excedrin… whatever over the counter pain medicine they have on hand. I used to do the same. I always had a few bottles laying around- one in my bathroom, one in the kitchen pantry, one in the glove compartment of my car, and of course, one in my purse. If anyone ever had a headache, I was right there to offer them some relief. If you suffer from headaches or migraines and you want to use something natural, versus popping pills, then I recommend trying essential oils. I am so glad I did! They have changed my life! I never realized how much I was damaging my body with all the medicines I would use for my daily ailments.
Young Living M-Grain is a great choice for migraine sufferers. M-Grain is a blend of pure essential oils that soothe head and muscle tension.

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) – has sedative and calming properties that help overcome nervous tension, headaches, stress and insomnia.  This oil has been known to work where ever there is a need.
