Migraines for me started years ago, only then I called them headaches. Over time they got worse, which officially moved me up to migraine status. What I needed was relief. Taking three Advil no longer worked. And, after my left kidney was removed, the only pain option for me was extra strength Tylenol, which sadly didn’t help at all.
All of you who suffer from these wicked headaches know what I’m talking about. Migraine relief is hard to find.
My doctor prescribed medication, but I absolutely hate taking pills of any kind. I’d get the prescription filled anyway (doctor guilt, crazy I know) and then never take it. Go figure.
I’d sort it out on my own.
And that’s what I did.
First, I’ve got to say that if you’ve found something that works, stick with it! If it ain’t broken… but if you’re anything like me, sometimes things you’ve used in the past work for a bit and then not so well anymore. Or it’s a combination of things that work.
When I recently had a migraine that lasted three days, I used multiple remedies to try to kick the pain to the curb; I took Tylenol (even though I knew it wouldn’t work); I used sage oil, which I quite like and it usually helped ( I put it on my forehead, near my ears and on my neck), then I closed my eyes and tried to sleep.
By day three I still wasn’t feeling much relief.
Only when my daughter reminded me to try the CBD ointment my sister had sent me from Colorado (specifically to help get rid of my migraines) did things change. Thank you, Sister!
I opened the 2 oz jar and rubbed the asparagus colored salve in the aforementioned spots (forehead, neck, near ears). In about 20 minutes the migraine actually began to ease up! I tried not to get too excited, but just to make sure it was going to really work, I put on more of the green balm and massaged it into my skin.
That was a good idea.
CBD products are only sold in certain states in the US, so if you don’t live in a state that sells them, shop HERE.
There is nothing more debilitating than a migraine. And, when it goes on for days, well, we that suffer need no explanation, it’s the worst.
Migraines take days from your life that you don’t get back and that’s not okay.
Knowing I have CBD ointment in the house gives me a lot of comfort i.e. it’s there if I need it. But honestly, the goal is to never have to use it! 🤞
I hope it works for you.
Inessecents Salvation CBD skin salve is the only one I’ve tried for migraines and I’m definitely pleased with the results.
BONUS: It also works for neck and back pain!
Use CBD products is at your own discretion.
