I haven’t shared with you any of my new discoveries in a while… this is not because I have forgotten but simply because I haven’t discovered anything particularly amazing… until now.
A few weeks ago I was introduced to Migrastick – a tiny roll-on device which helps to relieve the pain caused by headaches and migraines.
I don’t know how you are dealing with a headache but for me it is a nightmare. I hate taking pills, so when the pain comes my first consideration is not take the painkillers, which most of the time leads to even more pain, consequently my stress levels go through the roof and I end up having no choice but to eat some pills. This in itself makes my uneasy, grumpy and simply unhappy.
Migrastick works from the outside; it gives a lovely cold, almost freezing sensation to your temples. It smells like peppermint chewing gum and best of all it works.
Migrastick contains NO preservatives, parabens, colourings or alcohol. It is made from 100% pure and natural essential oils; it contains: peppermint essential oil (Mentha piperita), lavender essential oil (Lavandula angustifolia); Isopropyl myristate (a fatty acid of vegetable origin).
So how does it work?
You simply apply it to your temples and it will ease your pain. The cold feeling and the aroma from the oils work on your senses soothing them and then taking the pain away.
I don’t get migraines, I get just headaches, though some can be quite bad so I am not able to tell you if it works for migraines but it for sure works on headaches.
As I have very dry skin I was a bit worried at the beginning that the menthol component will irritate my skin and make it even more dry, but to my surprise this is not the case. Not sure why… maybe because these are actual oils inside the stick.
This is a really fabulous product and well worth sharing.
I only wish it had a slightly different style of packaging so you could actually see inside of it. As it is now, I have no idea how much I still have left, so I find myself wondering “is it time to buy a new one yet?”
Do you think Migrstick is a good idea?
Or do you prefer a traditional painkiller?
