A small drop of lavender essential oil massaged into the little dent in the temples (just behind the edge of the eye socket) has worked for a few people I know of. Also try Camomile Roman, neroli, peppermint, rodemary, grapefruit. All of these must be diluted in a base oil to 5%.

A course of proper aromatherapy massages also can help, especially if the migraines have a stress element in their onset.

Have you tried Aromatherapy? I work with a girl who suffered from migraines on a monthly basis and she tried this formula and it has worked.. hope it helps!

Chamomile Roman 5 drops
Grapefruit 10 drops
Peppermint 5 drops
Rosemary 3 drops
Dilute essential oils in 60mls of Almond Oil (as it is best for sensitive skin) and massage over body on a weekly basis. Can also be massaged around hairline during migraine attacks. Good luck.
