My last post was about my own survival products which I pack with me everywhere. Included in my list was Owens Acres Headache Balm. To be honest, I swear by this stuff, for my headaches, pressure “issues” and the pain from the bone spurs in my neck, which also makes my head hurts.
One of my readers asked about the Headache Balm and how it works, and dear Laura from Owens Acres popped in and answered, better than I ever could have:
Hi, Laura Owens from Owens Acres. The Headache Balm works just like a lotion, it it absorbed into the skin and the peppermint relieves the pulsing and pounding when applied directly. Secondly anything you put on your skin is absorbed into the blood stream – hence why you want natural or organic products. Peppermint relaxes blood vessels and airways and has a natural cooling affect.
Want to test this theory? Rub a drop of Peppermint Essential oil on the top of your foot. In a couple of minutes you will taste it in your mouth!
Peppermint inhaled will also help a headache or nausea/vomiting.
Hope the info is helpful!
Thank you so much, Laura! I did the Peppermint Essential Oil test on the top of my foot, and she was right, I tasted it in my mouth not too soon after.
I just ordered another tube of Headache Balm from her, I really hope eventually she makes it in a bigger tube, I can’t live without it. Well, my head and sinuses can’t live without it.
