Headache trouble?

From the doTerra Newsletter:

According to the National Headache Foundation, over 45 million
Americans suffer from chronic, recurring headaches. There are 150
established headache categories – who knew! – but the most common
types are Tension, Migraines, Sinus and Hormonal. Online resource
Web MD offers some surprising headache triggers:
Your boss – or anything else that raises your stress level
Warm weather
Too-tight hair accessories
Strenuous exercise
Poor Posture
Aged cheese, such as bleu, cheddar, feta
Red Wine
Cold Cuts, because of their additives/preservatives
Skipping Meals
Smoking
Caffeine
Genetics – headaches, especially migraines, tend to run in families
Many people who suffer with headaches are prescribed potent
prescription or over-the-counter medications, but complain of
feeling, dopey, loopy, snoozy, grumpy or otherwise dwarfed by the drugs. doTERRA offers powerful natural alternatives!

PastTense - This is a powerhouse blend of Wintergreen (anti-
inflammatory, anti-spasmodic pain reliever); relaxing, balancing
Lavender; cooling, calming Peppermint; mood-elevating Frankincense
(actually crosses the blood-brain barrier and oxygenates the pineal
and pituitary glands); analgesic Cilantro, which also quells the
nausea that often accompanies headaches; muscle calming Marjoram;
sense-soothing Roman Chamomile; muscle de-stressing Basil; and
relieving Rosemary. PastTense is easy to carry in purse or pocket,
and its roller-ball top makes it a great choice for not only
headaches, but arthritic joints, carpal tunnel syndrome, neck and
shoulder aches, and other targeted areas of pain and tension.
