As I previously discussed, the aromatherapy has been having a definite positive impact on my migraines. Initially, I started with pure Frankincense oil to conduct a causal determination that the Frankincense oil was the specific ingredient resulting in the improvement. I didn’t take any meds at all during the week of testing. I was so pleased with the result, I decided to start testing various blends of essential oils to create my own aromatherapy solution for healing my concussion as a whole and not just blocking the migraine symptoms. Note, my concussion was sustained 5.5 months ago, so this isn’t just going away on it’s own.
The major symptoms I have been having were migraines (when reading computer screens at work all day under florescent lighting), low grade headaches (in particular when using Frankincense to block the migraines), and excessive fatigue (again more noticeable following extended computer use/florescent lighting at work).
I have not yet found any aromatherapy blends specifically targeting concussions, which is surprising. Therefore, I researched oils used for combating migraines, headaches, and fatigue and chose my ingredients. Frankincense is rarely used for any of these purposes based on my research so far. I discovered the link to healing concussions and migraines through other blogs like mine.
Rob’s Concussion Blend #1
15ml almond oil (carrier oil)
20 drops Frankincense oil (NOTE – I initially started with 10 drops but after a few days, I could tell there was not enough Frankincense having been using it pure previously)
8 drops Eucalyptus oil
8 drops Lemongrass oil
4 drops Peppermint oil
If anyone else local is also combating a concussion or just migraines and wants to join in the aromatherapy testing, you are welcome to email me. Some of the oils are quite expensive and it doesn’t take much to test or create blends like this.
I will post next week after I have given this blend a chance to work. My initial thought is I may have to add more Frankincense based on the fact that I was using it pure previously.
