Migraines has many triggers. Mine can be triggered by what I eat and/or my autoimmune disease (lupus), IBS, and lack of exercise. There are many other triggers: stress, sensory stimuli (perfumes, smoke, strong smells), sleep, and/or medications. It is very hard to pinpoint when it will begin. Start a journal and take notes on how you feel each day and when a headache starts and then when it turns into a migraine. Talk to a doctor or a nutritionist for additional help.
Believe me, I have tried many things to get my migraines under control. I may just need a new eye prescription. For now, I did find a way to take the "pressure" off.
I put one drop of rosemary, frankincense, and tea tree essential oils in a hot cup of water. I used a towel to put over my head to be able to deeply inhale the therapeutic properties of the oils. I stayed under for about 10 minutes. I also put 2 drops of each oil in my diffuser for additional help. It does take a little trial and error to find what works for you.
