This is the First Essential Oil.....

.....that I tried and let me tell you I was HOOKED!!  Anything that would get rid of my headache in a fraction of the time that ibuprofen did is a winner in my book....Seriously!!  Not only did I not have to wait 30 minutes to an hour for it to MAYBE work, but I didn't have to worry about having something in my stomach before taking it or having an upset stomach afterwards.  It's like, get rid of one pain and get another.  Which is worse??
