Migraine Magick giveaway, review and discount code for Migraine natural spray

I was sent a bottle of Migraine Magick and roller to review* and have partnered with them to give away a bottle to one lucky winner!  I always have a roller of essential oils in my purse to use on my temples, forehead, neck, and wrists so I knew the roller would be handy. The roller is great for on the go but I really love the spray at home.

What is Migraine Magick?

According to Lisa, owner and creator, it is “An integrative approach to self care, The Magick Brand™ bridges elements of ancient eastern medicines with the latest in western technology, infused with energy through precious minerals and gemstones….

The Magick Brand™ incorporates principles of eastern medicine focused on balancing energy within the mind, body and soul as fundamental to nurturing energy and well-being. Combined with the latest advances in biotechnology, quantum physics and frequency, the results provide an unparalleled synergy which noticeably transforms your body, mind and soul with each use.”

I will be honest in saying, I’m not sure how crystals work and how they balance or nurture the body. I tend to be a bit skeptical about gemstones healing me, but when I’m in chronic pain, I tend to be a bit more open towards options. I like the idea of stones and crystals and they are pretty but I haven’t been sure on how or if they can help.

I’ve been using the spray now for a few weeks and find it to be refreshing and light.  I love the spray because I spray my whole face.  With essential oils, I rub a specific pressure or pain point with the roller.  I like the spray because I can spray and treat my whole face. I get pain behind my eyes, temples, jaw, forehead, neck, shoulders and back of the head. I also spray my stomach when I’m nauseous and like it for treating the larger area. The spray can widely treat the pain areas without burning or too strong of smell all over.

Migraine Magick isn’t a “burning” type muscle rub.  I try a lot of different oils and rubs and this one isn’t strong smelling or burning (a slight tingle sometimes though).  I typically reach for it as I walk out the door with a raising headache, migraine or stressful day ahead of me.  I spray my face, neck and saturate my skin in Migraine Magick. It seems to be a product I keep reaching for.  It relaxes me and subtly soothes my wide spread pain without smelling like menthol.

The downfall is, Migraine Magick is a bit expensive.  With all the things I try, how do I know it will work for me and be worth the investment?  Well, I don’t know.  The only advice I can say is, try it!

I have 2 ways for you to try it today!

Migraine glasses and coupon code for light sensitivity help

axon coupon

For those of you looking for glasses to help with photophobia, light sensitivity and migraine triggers, I highly recommend Axon Optics!  I have been wearing Axon Optics for several years now.  With all the reviews I have done, Axon Optics are one of my favorites.  They are my favorite because I need and wear them often.

Because of my love for them, there are *affiliate links in this post. I will be rewarded with a small commission and you, hopefully, will be rewarded with eye strain and migraine relief. I really benefit from their glasses and recommend them without being influenced. I am not a doctor so please refer to your doctor or optometrist for concerns. See *disclaimer for more details.

Natural Relief

I wear both indoor and outdoor glasses.  They are beneficial in their own ways. Axon Optics uses FL-41 tint that has been proven to help with conditions associated with light sensitivity. “It successfully blocks the distressing portion of the light spectrum, which bothers light sensitive people and causes cumulative eye damage over a lifetime.”

Where I wear them:

  • Outside
    • sunny days, cloudy days, rainy days, bright snowy days (all weather!)
  • nside
    • shopping, at home, at work, at sporting events (any where with fluorescent lights)

Basically, I wear them everywhere.  I keep my indoor pair in my purse for all events and keep my outdoor ones in my car.

Additionally, Axon Optics has amazing customer service.  They can and will answer your questions immediately. They want you to get exactly what you need for your specific needs!  They are a company that wants to help and they do!

Using a Weighted Blanket for My Migraine Needs with SensaCalm

 

IMG_1531

This product was given to me as a product review and contains affiliate links. My opinions are my own and I only recommend products I use and love. See disclaimer

A few years ago I taught children with many special needs.  During this time, I saw how incredibly powerful specialists are.  Physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, adaptive physical education and music.  The list goes on with how many ways there are to treat various needs.

I saw first hand how a weighted vest calmed a child.  For some reason I never considered sensory integration therapy for my migraines until recently.  I was laying on the couch with a migraine and under a blanket. I was restless with muscles clenched and in pain.  I was also cold so I piled a bunch of blankets on myself. I felt the weight wash over me and help calm my body a bit.

I realized I may benefit from a weighted blanket. After searching, I found SensaCalm.  The “weighted blankets, wraps, and lap pads provide the user with soothing, deep pressure and compressions, allowing the user to relax and calm themselves.” The variety of choices was fun to look through and blankets can be custom made.

My blanket has a “cuddle” fabric and is incredibly soft! I love this blanket!!! Like all therapeutic products, it is not cheap.  The blanket is an investment in my treatment. Rest and comfort, especially during migraine times, I need extra sensory input. The blanket will not stop a migraine but treats my overall pain and discomfort in my body. I now use this blanket everyday and recommend it to anyone with sensory needs.

SensaCalm also offers various toys and accessories.  While scrolling through, I ran across the epsom salt soap. “Epsom salts are known to provide a dose of magnesium through the skin (which people with autism tend to be short on).” Migraine sufferers also tend to be short on magnesium.  I use the lavender bar in the shower for days I don’t have time to take a bath (which are most days). It is made of a variety of natural ingredients made to draw out toxins and calm.

SensaCalm is a new item added to my gift list and I look forward to enjoying it all winter and year round. It has been an amazing addition to my Migraine tool kit at home. Like all products, please consult your doctor and see the safety guidelines provided by SensaCalm.

Organic Aromas diffuser and essential oil for migraine, relaxation and a peaceful home

 

*This post contains affiliate links while the diffuser and oils were given to me as a product review. I am not a doctor and am giving my honest opinion. To learn more see disclaimer

 I previously reviewed the Elements Premium Essential Oil Blends and Raindrop diffuser I use them in my bedroom throughout the day and night. I love them so much, I had to add them to my Top gifts for Migraine, Chronic Illness and those in need of Self Care.

I now have a diffuser and oils to use in my main living space also. I  received* the Radiance diffuser and Master Aromatherapist kit and it has been a gift my whole family enjoys.  The interesting thing about having Chronic Migraine is that smells are very personal and a constantly evolving sense.  Some days I diffuse oils for an extended amount of time and other days I can’t stand any smell in my home.  Some days I like mixed oils and others I like them pure.  This is why the Master Aromatherapist kit works so well for me. It “features some of the best, most important and versatile pure essential oils, certified organic oils and four artisanally-crafted essential oil blends found nowhere else.”  It’s perfect for all of my needs while providing a beautiful box to hold my essentials oils and future bottles I purchase.

The Radiance diffuser is beautiful! It blends perfectly with my décor. Organic Aromas diffusers use “Bernoulli’s principle” which is a nebulizer requiring no heat and no water.  The diffuser comes with built-in “touch sensor” light switch that allows you to turn the LED light on or off with a simple brush of your finger whenever you wish.  This is great for the days I can’t stand any light.  It also has usage cycles of 2 minutes On, and 1 minute Off with auto Shut-off after 120 minutes. I also enjoy the feature that allows personalization of “volume” which gives me control over how much I diffuse.  A little oil goes a long way and each day I require different oils, amounts of oils diffused, and amounts of light and duration of oils being diffused.  With my variety of needs, Organic Aromas diffusers and oils allow me to choose what is best for each situation.

Along with making handmade aromatherapy diffusers using specialty glass and high quality wood, there are numerous varieties, shapes, colors and sizes of essential oil diffusers to choose from. The certified oils and kits are organic essential oils and blends made with the finest quality plants, flowers, tree barks and other natural materials.  The people at Organic Aromas are founded on “the principles of hard work, innovation and the genuine care for the well-being of our customers.”
