How to Make a Pain-Relieving Herbal Salve for Migraines
Author: Allie Beckett 14/07/2017 - 20:20:00

Headache disorders are among the most common nervous system disorders, and they aren’t going away anytime soon. There is nothing worse than an excruciating migraine where the only relief seems to be hiding under a blanket for hours until the throbbing subsides. According to The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), as many as 70% of Americans suffer from disabling, chronic headaches severe enough to seek medical attention. 

Over-the-counter or prescription painkillers are often the first treatment step for headaches and migraines, but while they are effective at relieving immediate pain, these harsh pharmaceuticals come with a myriad of harmful side-effects. Luckily, there is another way! 

Cannabis salves are always my recommended “gateway product” to medical marijuana — they don’t get you high and people are always amazed at the relief a simple salve can provide. At the first sign of a headache or a migraine, a little bit of salve rubbed on the temples subsides the pain almost immediately. Rubbed on the neck and shoulders, this salve will relieve tension and stress headaches as well — honestly, I rub this stuff anywhere I feel pain and it works wonders. But since I have some friends who are cautious about any cannabis touching their body because they get drug-tested for work, I designed this recipe to be just as pain-relieving without cannabis.

You can make this recipe as simple or as complex as you like. I’ve written the “complex” version, which isn’t any harder to make, it simply has more herbs and essential oils. You can simplify this recipe by only adding essential oils instead of dried herbs, which skips the herbal infusion step and goes straight into melting the oil and beeswax together. Salves may seem intimidating but they really are surprisingly simple to make. Once you make one, it’s hard to stop — there are endless ways to experiment with different herbs and essential oils. Find out what works best for you!
