Aromatic Health Product Review and Giveaway!

Aromatic Health's Headbalm

Aromatic Health's Headbalm

First, some background: I get frequent headaches. And I go through a bottle of Ibuprofin on a fairly regular basis. I definitely don’t like taking that much Ibuprofin, but the alternative is usually to sit suffering at my desk. So, I take the darn things.

So when Michelle over at Aromatic Health asked if I’d be interested in doing a product review of her natural care products, I jumped at the chance because she offered a natural headache balm.

Now to be honest, I really didn’t think it was going to work.  I’m definitely a skeptic when it comes to headache remedies, because it seems as if I’ve tried them all. Usually it’s just a disappointment.

But I’m happy to say I was dead wrong about Headbalm. This stuff is amazing, not only because it’s 100% natural, but because it works.

Aromatic Health’s Headbalm

Headbalm contains only essential oils. These essentials oils are known to relieve headaches. The balm contains:

  • Lavender
  • Peppermint
  • Chamomile

It’s vegan, cruelty-free, and 100% non-toxic. Michelle is also a signer of The Compact for Safe Cosmetics, which means you won’t find any chemicals or dangerous substances in her products.

Applying the Headbalm

On Michelle’s site it says to apply the Headbalm to the nape of the neck and to the temples. I found it actually worked best if I put it right under my nose.

Now, my headache did not magically disappear as soon as I started smelling the essential oils. It won’t do that even with Ibuprofrin. But it did start to fade away, sometimes quite quickly.

I’ve used the Headbalm through six headaches now. Four of those headaches were dispelled thanks to the Headbalm. The other two weren’t, but I got both of those after an intense run, and I think they were due to dehydration.

Usually I have to apply the Headbalm 3-4 times under my nose and on my temples before the headache is completely gone.I’d estimate that it takes around 30-45 minutes for my headache to completely go away. But again, that’s about what it takes with Ibuprofrin. And, using the Headbalm is much safer for my body (and much more pleasant!)

If you have frequent headaches I’d highly recommend you check out Michelle’s Headbalm. I can’t say that it will work for everyone, but I can say that it worked for me. I keep it in my purse all the time now, and am really grateful that I have it on-hand. The fragrance is wonderful, and it’s really nice to smell it constantly when my head is pounding.

Yep, There’s A Giveaway Too!

I get regular migraines and would love to try the headbalm to see if it would help at all! My migraines often last the whole day…or longer.

Barbara Marlow April 27, 2010 at 1:12 pm

I definitely like the Essential Wellness kit. It has the Headbalm plus other good stuff. If I can’t win that then most definitely just the Headbalm! LOL.

I like the Citrus Body Scrub! Thanks for the opportunity!

Kate April 27, 2010 at 4:20 pm

I’d really like to win the Headbalm you described in your post. My fiance is a blogger for a large website and most days spends 9-10 hours in front of a computer screen. Needless to say he gets headaches fairly regularly and often times Tylenol just doesn’t work. I’d definitely like to try this product out on him.

Natalie April 27, 2010 at 8:06 pm

I would love to win the post cesarean healing ointment. I recently had my second cesarean and now I have two beautiful children, but two ugly scars to prove it. If the ointment works, I will be sure to buy more to take care of the stretch marks everywhere else. 🙂

Danielle@Newlywed Paradise April 27, 2010 at 8:35 pm

My husband suffers from frequent headaches also! I think it’s the line of work he is in. He works in a noisy factory all day. I am hoping the headbalm will help him. Good luck to me!

Coincidentally (and timely!), I had a major migraine yesterday, so this post certainly caught my eye! I would LOVE to try Headbalm. It sounds soothing and would be much more pleasant to use than any medication.
The other products on the site look good as well, but the Headbalm is looking especially good this week!

Ric Vogt April 28, 2010 at 7:39 am

This is great fun. I would like to win some Botanical Facial. Thanks for your great articles too. Namaste…mooo

Lauren April 28, 2010 at 8:28 am

I’d go for the essential wellness kit. It has everything in there, including the headbalm, which I’d love to try (I’ve had migraines since I was 3, so I completely understand how you feel!).

Tammy April 28, 2010 at 9:19 am

This is one giveaway I could really use. I have several health issues and if these products will work for me, that would be amazing! I take too much prescription medication already, and it would be wonderful to have natural relief for my severe headaches (and the nausea that sometimes accompany them), relief for my constantly aching muscles and a natural remedy for my mental clarity issues. Thank you for such a great giveaway!

I would also love to try the Headbalm. I could easily go through a bottle of Aleve in a couple of weeks and really (really) need to stop doing that to my body. Thanks for the chance!

Ksea April 28, 2010 at 12:03 pm

I would love to win the Essential Wellness Kit in the Aromatic Health giveaway! Thanks so much for all the wonderful info you post!

Marie April 28, 2010 at 12:50 pm

Headbalm would be perfect. I would love a natural alternative to the chemical mix that is Excedrin for myself (migraines) and my partner (tension headaches). Thanks!

rose April 28, 2010 at 2:05 pm

I’d love to have the AH! Choo for my sweet little girl. I’m really trying to go as natural as possible with treating all of our illnesses, allergies, etc.
Thank you for this awesome giveaway!

Christy April 28, 2010 at 3:53 pm

Well I guess I am just going to be greedy because there are so many things I would love to try, the essential wellness kit would be wonderful, but so would the massage oil and the muscle ointment. We work alot in the garden so the cold/sinus or stress relief sounds great, but we are open, anything that is natural and could help keep us from taking medication would be great. What great sounding products and a great post.

Caitlin April 28, 2010 at 4:19 pm

I would love to get the citrus body scrub, it sounds wonderful!

Caitlin April 28, 2010 at 4:20 pm

Would love to get the citrus body scrub. Sounds wonderful!

Casey April 28, 2010 at 6:46 pm

I would choose the Tranquil Child oil because my kids have a hard time falling asleep.

Julie April 28, 2010 at 8:33 pm

What a great prize. It’s a close call between Mental Clarity and Stress Relief but for me I think the Stress Relief would be the most beneficial

Mindy April 28, 2010 at 10:01 pm

I would love to try the Headbalm, too. I get frequent headaches and hate taking Tylenol to get rid of them.

Lori April 28, 2010 at 11:55 pm

Thank you for your continued AWESOME information and insights. I am interested in the Cold and Sinus blend!

Lauren Minter April 29, 2010 at 7:29 am

I’d like to win the headbalm in the giveaway… all of the products sound really great, actually!

Linda April 30, 2010 at 5:48 am

Definitely muscle ointment.

Tanya April 30, 2010 at 9:34 am

I would love to try the headbalm! I too get frequent headaches and don’t like to take a lot of medicine. The other products look great too, wish they had been around many years ago when I was pregnant!

Tanya April 30, 2010 at 9:39 am

I would love to try the headbalm! I get frequent headaches also and don’t like to take a lot of medicine. Everything else looks so wonderful too, wish it had been around many years ago when I was pregnant!

Tanya April 30, 2010 at 9:43 am

I would love to try the headbalm! I get frequent headaches too and don’t like to take a lot of medication. Every on the site looks wonderful, I wish it had been around when I was pregnant many years ago!

robbie April 30, 2010 at 10:58 pm

The essential wellness kit is right up my alley. Between springtime allergies and work-related stress, this would take care of me!
