Developed for a customer who gets migraines, this blend of Lavender, Peppermint and Spearmint is fragrant and soothing to the spirit and the nerves. The gentle, floral fragrance of the Lavender is relaxing and soothing, while ths vapors from the mints help to clear the head.
Internally, mint is a vaso-dilator, relieving the tightness and constriction of the bloodvessels in the body (especially in the head) allowing the blood to flow more freely. Since a major cause of headache is constriction of the bloodvessels, this is a big help.
Mint, along with Lavender, is also a muscle relaxer, thus lessening the tension in the head and neck region - another main cause of headaches. And, since it is totally caffiene-free, there is no chance of a caffiene-induced worsening of the headache, or of a rebound effect.
