4. What is a counterirritant?
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.
5. Can I use Migraine Stick while pregnant or breastfeeding?
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:
6. When does Migraine Stick expire?
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.
