You deserve it.
As soon as a headache starts to make its way around your eyes and ears, you know you’re in for a battle, and the battle could knock you out all day. Not only do you want to have a dependency on strong pain killers, but your stomach can’t handle them. They’re harsh and toxic and can lead to serious illness. Instead, it’s important to treat the problem naturally as well as try to treat the root of the problem.
Migraines and headaches are most commonly the result of extreme tension in the neck, shoulders and back. They can also be the side effect of dietary or other allergic sensitivities and illnesses, so don’t rule those out if you haven’t already checked with your doctor. But since most are tension related, I want to share some ways to alleviate the pain quickly and naturally, as well as maintain your body to avoid more pain in the future.
First of all, remember that all the muscles, nerves and bones in your body are interconnected. If you’re having a headache on the left side of your head, it could be a result of tightness in the right hip, because the muscles cross over and intertwine all over the body. So when you start to feel a headache, begin to stretch from toe to head – yes, in that direction.
Start by standing tall and rolling your feet and ankles. Move to stretching your hamstrings and lower back by bending forward. Twist right and left a few times while bent over. Alternate arching your spine forward and outward and then roll back up into standing. From there, roll your shoulders backwards and stretch your arms up and out, while rotating your hands up, down, in and out. You should feel this in your forearms especially. Then move to your neck. First straighten your spine, imagining making your neck extra long. Once you’ve elongated your neck, lean it to the right, then to the left and then down with your chin to your chest.
From there, gently take your hand and add a little bit of pressure to your head in the direction of your stretch to take it a little further.
Take as much time as you need on each area of the body. Spend more time on areas that have more resistance or tension – but don’t force or strain anything.
To really get the most out of this, add a few sprays of our Lavender-Infused Eucalyptus Oil Shower Mist to your hot shower (with the bathroom door shut to trap the heat) or add it to a steam room or sauna, and then do the stretches. The heat will relax your muscles while the eucalyptus reduces the inflammation and increases circulation.
This method is incredibly beneficial and helpful. So if you are one that suffers from migraines, headaches, be sure to grab a bottle of our Lavender-Infused Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist to experience calming, natural relief.
You’re busy and don’t have time to be shackled down by annoying sneezing, congestion, and headaches. You also care about your health and don’t want to be constantly popping antihistamines all day. You need relief you can count on that supports total body wellness.
We want you to know that you can find relief and it’s surprisingly simple!
For starters, make sure that you’re drinking enough water. Dehydration causes the mucous in your body to become thicker, making it harder to drain. Also, avoid excess fruit as they are higher in natural pollen count. Lastly, make sure your home spaces are cleared of dust and dander as this will aggravate allergic responses.

It’s too familiar. It feels like the flu is coming: slight headache, sinus pressure, tiredness, and then sneezing. The good news: there’s a good chance you’re not sick. The bad news: it’s likely you’ve got seasonal allergies.
Why is this bad news? Well, a cold will go away. Allergies like to hang on to you like your clingy friend for months on end. You can’t work or function like that—much less enjoy the beauty of the season.
So rather than buy out the local drug store’s stock of anti-histamines, we’d like to suggest you take a more natural, yet just as effective route.
Here are 4 of the best tips for relieving seasonal allergies:
1. Eat the right foods
Choose to eat a clean and balanced diet, full of high-quality protein, fruits, and vegetables. This may reduce season allergy symptoms and also strengthens the immune system. Drink a lot of water only, and do your best to avoid grains, dairy, excess salt, sugar, alcohol, and any other highly-processed foods. Foods that help get rid of seasonal allergies are garlic, ginger, onions, and honey. Steep them in a tea for best results.
2. Herbs with superpowers
Several herbs may be used to calm the sneezing and congestion symptoms associated with seasonal allergies. They work mainly by strengthening and supporting the allergen-fighting immune system. Some of these herbs are stinging nettle, gingko, and quercetin.
3. Drink a lot of water
Drinking adequate water will dilute your system as well as keep the mucous flowing, so it doesn’t stagnate in your sinus cavities. The more dehydrated you are, the more pressure and burning you’re likely to feel.
4. Steam with Eucalyptus
This is an easy and relaxing option for relieving seasonal allergies. Start a hot shower or bath and breathe in the steam. The steam will break up the mucous and relax the tense muscles. Also, adding essential oils like our Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist to the steam will give you peak relief.
Other helpful tips
There will be days where the pollen count is high, and your safest choice will be to stay indoors. (Enter your zip code here and find out your local pollen count!) Avoid going outside during windy days or after thunderstorms. And as needed throughout the day, rinse your face and blow your nose to keep yourself clear from any pollen collecting there. And if you suffer from extremely severe season allergies, you may want to forego a lawn, and instead have bricks, rocks, or stone for a landscape.

If you’re used to getting sinus problems, then we have a solution for you.
Sinus problems hurt, happen inconveniently, and leave you feeling frustrated and desperate for anything that works.
A solution? Eucalyptus oil. In particular, using Eucalyptus in the home shower or in a steam room regularly will help not only the immediate symptoms but also the condition on a long-term basis.
Eucalyptus oil is a steam distilled from the Eucalyptus tree. The oil is taken from the tree’s leaves and extracted for medicinal, pharmaceutical, repellent, flavorings, fragrance, antiseptic, and other uses. Eucalyptus trees and bushes grow in South Africa, Portugal, Spain, Brazil, Australia, Chile, and Swaziland.
Eucalyptus is high in an oxide 1,8-cineol (or eucalyptol). Oxides are a compound that has oxygen (technical wording: “a binary compound of an element or a radical with oxygen”). Cineol is the most prevalent of the oxides, meaning Eucalyptus is great as an anesthetic (loss of sensation), antiseptic (reduce the possibility of infection), as well as a strong mucolytic (gets rid of mucus). It thins the mucus in the respiratory tract infections, making it a miracle worker for sinus problems.
Eucalyptus is analgesic, antibacterial, anticatarrhal, anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, insecticidal, and expectorant. This means that eucalyptus may help with acne, bronchitis, ear inflammation, flu, hay fever, high blood pressure, nasal problems such as sinus infections, coughs, congestion, vaginitis, as well as insect repellent.
The benefits are extensive, so making the decision to keep it in your home is an easy one. So stop feeling hopeless and know that you can feel better. See for yourself, with our Eucalyptus ShowerMist and other health improving products!
