Migrastil Migraine Stick

Pure Peppermint, Spearmint, and Lavender essential oils in a base of fractionated coconut oil.

Migraine Stick may be used as often as needed, but for best results we suggest you wait at least two hours between applications.  If you have sensitive skin, multiple applications may cause temporary irritation.

A counterirritant is a substance that is applied to the skin to cause a mild irritation (like tingling or cooling) in order to block a separate sensation of pain. Mentholated sports creams and rubs are a typical example of counterirritants. When you have muscle soreness or pain, these rubs cause a strong cooling or tingling effect on your skin. This signal is sent straight to the brain and travels faster than the pain signals from your sore muscles, thus crowding the pain signals off your nerve system's "highway" to your brain. This happens because your nervous system typically gives priority to signals coming from outside your body, i.e. on your skin which may represent an immediate danger - like being bitten by an animal or getting burned.

The ingredients in Migraine Stick are generally considered safe during pregnancy. However, some people think it is best to not use essential oils at all during the first trimester. We suggest speaking with your doctor first before using Migraine Stick or Cream, especially in your first trimester or if you have complications with your pregnancy, just to be safe.

In breastfeeding women, there is some evidence that peppermint can reduce milk flow. This is most likely to happen when consuming large amounts of peppermint, such as drinking peppermint tea or eating peppermint candy. We have not seen evidence of this happen when applying products containing peppermint oil topically, but it is something to be aware of.

Here are a few good articles on this subject:

The migraine stick does not have a specific expiration date. They are good for a minimum of 2 years after your purchase. The oils in them don't go bad, but do lose strength after a while. The migraine stick has a cooling, tingling feeling on your skin a few minutes after application. As long as this cooling, tingling is present the stick is still good.  If you keep them from getting too hot and out of direct sunlight they will last longer.

Migraine Stick is currently available on this website and on Amazon. We are working to get Migraine Stick into more retail outlets to offer our customers more ways to get it.

Migrastil Capsules

Migrastil has four active ingredients:  taurine, magnesium, feverfew and vitamin B1.  Taken together, they have a synergistic effect and work to support normal neurological and vascular functioning.  

You should take one capsule twice a day. We suggest taking it with food, for instance one capsule with breakfast and one capsule with dinner.

Most people do not experience any side effects when using Migrastil.  Occasionally, magnesium can cause temporary minor stomach upset. This is usually avoided by taking Migrastil with food. If you do experience stomach irritation, try starting out with one capsule a day for a week or two to give your body time to adjust.  

Probably, but it is very important that you discuss this with your doctor to make sure. People who take prescription blood thinners like Coumadin should not take Migrastil.

Each bottle of Migrastil has a best by date stamped on the bottle.  

Each bottle of Migrastil has 60 capsules – enough for one month.

Pregnant or nursing mothers should not take Migrastil. Neither should people who take prescription blood thinners like Coumadin. Migrastil is not recommended for people under 18 years of age without a doctor’s advice.  If you experience an allergic reaction to Migrastil, quit taking immediately and contact your doctor.
