On October 15th, I will be giving away a Survival Kit full of items to help one of you wonderful subscribers survive those migraines. If you don’t get migraines, these products can all be used for other purposes, so don’t worry, if you don’t get migraines, they’ll still be beneficial to you. Each item was donated to me for review by the companies that make them, except the migraine scarf, however, EVERYTHING IS BRAND-NEW! I’d already ordered these items for myself, and loved them so much I collaborated with the companies involved to get some items for review & giveaway! If you want to read more about how these products are used to help alleviate migraine pain, check out my postΒ on Managing Migraines Without Medication.

-Grace and Stella cooling eye gel bead mask
-Comfy Comfy Canada hot/cold flaxseed pack

Links to Products:

Grace and Stella Bath Rocks – When I first got the Rosemary Bath Rocks, I thought they were going to smell weird, or strong. The very opposite is true – these bath rocks smell absolutely heavenly, and although I LOVE the smell of Jasmine, I actually prefer these to the Jasmine rocks! Not only are they fabulous, but they are also very inexpensive! Click on the image to go to Amazon for more information. *note: I get a small commission if you buy these through this link.

 

 


Grace and Stella Peppermint Oil – This peppermint oil is useful for dabbing on your temples when you have a migraine, and then I recommend tying a migraine scarf tightly around your head making sure to cover your temples, then using a cold pack such as Comfy Comfy Canada’s cold pack that is in the gift package, and/or the Grace and Stella cooling gel bead eye mask.*note: I get a small commission if you buy these through this link.

 

 

Grace and Stella Cooling Gel Bead Eye Mask –Β So, this mask. I had picked up about half a dozen gel masks from the dollar store and Bed, Bath and Beyond, but they all have the same problem. They all get warm really, really quickly (I’d say about 5 minutes). Furthermore, I find they are far too cold to put on my eyes (eyeball freeze, anyone?). This one is unique because it has a layer of soft, minky-like fabric on the back. Yes, I now own 3 of them! *note: I get a small commission if you buy these through this link.
comfy comfy wrap
This is the actual wrap that was sent to me for review & giveaway. I love love love the super-soft minky fabric on the one side, and the paisley pattern is OH so cute! These are filled with Flaxseed, and can be kept in the freezer for migraines/injuries, or heated up in the microwave! It’s so much longer than other packs, making it my #1 favorite pack (and I have a LOT). Until November 30th, you can even get a 15% discount by going to their site and adding the discount code TESSAG15 at checkout!

Migraine Scarf – This one’s a secret! I’ve picked up a scarf that’s just the right size for tying around your head during a migraine, to help diminish blood flow to the brain during migraines, and also to distract your brain from the pain – pressure, heat, and cold are all time-proven ways to distract or confuse your brain, diminishing the pain signals it receives. I don’t know where I’d be without my scarf!

Good luck everyone! Hope you all find these products as useful as I do! One IMPORTANT NOTE: Grace and Stella has a HUGE sale on right now, and the eye mask and bath rocks are both about 50% off!!! If you want to take advantage of this discount, instead of going through my amazon links, go straight to their web page to order! (I won’t get any commission, but I love you guys that much, and you gotta take advantage of the sale before items are sold out or the sale ends!). Why do I love this company so much? Because they’re awesome, their products are very affordable, and they were featured on The Dragon’s Den!

  29. You know, I used to have bad migraines. And because of my low tolerance to pain, I have to take painkillers, sleep, and get a massage. When I wake up, I am still groggy.

I know it sounds not enough but really, some diffusing to relax me and some massage oils on the nape and temples at the onset and I would feel better. It also helped that I changed my glasses.
