Frankincense carteri – Research has shown that frankincense can be effective in relieving the pain caused by cluster headaches because of its anti-inflammatory properties. Cluster headaches tend to start from pain in your muscles, neck, and back, which is why an anti-inflammatory can help reduce that discomfort. Another scientific study has confirmed that this oil can lower the frequency and intensity of headaches in patients with severe migraines.
Lavender – Lavender can help treat headaches and migraine. Breathing in the scent from lavender essential oil can help acute management of migraine attacks. One 2013 study found that people reported a significant reduction in pain after only 15 minutes of inhaling the lavender oil.

Peppermint – Peppermint oil is one of the most commonly used essential oils to treat headaches or migraines. It contains menthol, which can help muscles relax and ease pain.

Peppermint oil is also shown to be effective for the additional symptoms that migraine, sinus, tension, and cluster headaches may cause, such as:
- runny nose
- muscle pain
