Some of our customers have said the Migraine Stick seems like witchcraft or magic. But, of course, it's not. It has a triple action effect that is actually easy to understand.
First, like all aromatherapy products it works through your sense of smell. Molecules of the essential oils in the Migraine Stick travel into your nose where they interact with nerve (olfactory) cells directly connected to a part of the brain called the limbic system and can help maintain healthy function.
Second, a small amount of the active essential oils in the Migraine Stick are absorbed by your skin. These oils have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic (anti-pain) properties.
Third, Migraine Stick works as a counter-irritant. It's high menthol content (from peppermint essential oil), creates a strong tingling sensation on your skin. This sensation hi-jacks the nerve pathways and blocks the pain signals associated with migraine. This is exactly how sports creams like BenGay work. But unlike most sports creams, Migraine Stick is made only with natural ingredients. This is important since what you put on your skin gets absorbed by your skin.
