My new handbag essential – A pocket sized headache reliever.
I don’t go anywhere without my new Migrastick. It is tiny, but mighty and packed with natural Mint and Lavender – a perfect combination.
I started my fascination with essential oils some years ago and although I have a little collection by now there are a few bottles that I reach for time and time again. One is lavender and another is peppermint.
I know I take far too many painkillers, and I also know that isn’t good for you. So when I saw this I just had to try it. An all natural solution with no baddies (like parabens, preservatives and colourings), Migrastick has definitely helped me through a stressful day or two. And as a bonus comes in a tiny lipstick sized container that can fit in my teeny tiny handbag. (I have a little addiiction to tiny handbags that I can wear over my body and keep my hands free)
There is something about essential oils that really works for me. The cooling touch of the Migrastick applied to the temples immediately gave a burst of refreshing and uplifting peppermint overlayed with lavender.
I took a peek in my Armotherapy bible – to understand how these oils work together, and it all makes sense. Peppermint oil helps treat nausea, headache and is helps with pain relief. I have always found peppermint oil uplifting. Lavender on the other hand relieves nervous tension is relaxing and works on eliminates pain too! A win win in my book.
I am always on the look out for products that make life a little easier, and this little one which is available at most pharmacies has found it’s place in my handbag.
My handbag essentials as pictured here are:
- My prescription specs (even in the winter for glare)
- My mobile – I honestly can’t be without my social media and emails
- My debit card and a little cash. I don’t carry much, really just for emergencies
- At least 2 lipsticks. I am trying to remind myself to top up during the day
- My Migrastick
