That throb. The one that makes you wince. It’s the worst, having a headache. Depletes your energy & they are very hard to ignore.
I wanted to create something from herbs that I can turn to for help. Something quick & easy to take with fast results. That’s why I went with a tincture formulation. Strong, effective & has a great shelf life.
Here’s what I chose:
✨ Skullcap: this relaxing nervine does wonders to help settle overactive brain function. It relieves stress and is highly effective for those type of headaches where the lights are too bright & any noise is too loud. This mild sedative helps nerve pain & tension headaches as well.
✨ Lavender: this beautiful flowering herb is a mild analgesic, meaning it is an herbal ally for pain management. Helping to calm & relieve tension. Ease your headache with this wonderful relaxing nervine.
✨ Linden: the underrated star player in this formulation. Linden is also a relaxing nervine. Helping to soothe & lift the pressure caused by headaches. When I read it was an underused, yet effective remedy, I knew I had to add it.
These three nervine herbs together are a powerful trio to be your headache helper 💛
