I am generally skeptical about headache/migraine remedies. One bad one and I was over trying to find help. Ya feel me? Ya ya, some EO can provide decent temporary relief. I was looking for something more long lasting, without much hope.
That's until Migraine Magick decided to prove their product really was Magick! This company found here, www.migrainemagick.com, provided this product for free in exchange for a 100% honest Smart Girl review!
That is where this beauty comes in!
I was so so so happy to, first thing, hold onto a solid glass bottle. It's sturdy. The sprayer top is a fine, fine mist. It was well packaged with minimal plastics, which I appreciate a lot.
As for how well it performed?
This couldn't have come at a more perfect time. A HUGE storm was rolling in as I opened this and I had a HORRIBLE headache starting. I don't just get headaches, I get full on migraines if I don't nip it in the bud.
I really tested this with my whole faith, I didn't take a single medication and made it through the front without a major issue.
The beginning of my migraines start on the left or right side of my head and the back. Slowly rolling into all over pain, nausea and sensitivity to light of any kind. Talk about annoying. I can't just stop my day for anything! Being a busy Smart Girl in Pants!
I first did an allergy test, as everyone should. I already know I'm not allergic to any of the ingredients lists but always be careful. Ask your doctor before using. Also do not discontinue any medication without telling your physician first!
After my allergy test came out in Migraine Magicks favor, I sprayed onto my hands and pat this formula onto my hands and gently pat onto my 'headache zones'. I don't mind sprays but ya know. Then went ahead and jumped into spraying!
I personally like patting it onto my zones better. It seems to use less product and the feeling of this is AMAZING. My headache almost went completely away immediately. Not that I'm shocked, the ingredients are similar to other products I have used and experienced temporary relief. Will it pass the full blown storm migraine test?
I'm addicted to spraying this. I'll be completely honest. Not only did it feel amazing for my headache BUT it felt great over my skin!
Half the testing time I was in full faced makeup. I can say this product did NOT effect my fully set makeup. Something that can not be said about creams, oils or lotions. Y'all know what happens when you add lotion or oil on top of makeup, right? If not, I'll just tell you it's not pretty.
I love that this has magnesium oil! One of my favorite things for any issue I have! I love the tingle from it and knowing that tingle means benefits.
I love the oils in this! I feel like they used the best choices and it's not too scented. Ya know when you get a product and it's SO scented? Well, that doesn't always help migraines, at least in my case. I really don't like nutmeg when I have a headache, weird I know.
I also am in love with the crystal essences and frequencies included in this blend. This, imo, sets this product far ahead of the other headache/migraine products. I truly love crystals and I adore the different energies. I can say this is by far why I am so hooked on using it often!
I also love that I CAN use it often and that it worked to keep me comfortable all night!
what we all want to know...
the Smart Pants Review!
I officially give this 5/5 👖 👖 👖 👖 👖
This is a joy to use! I love the light scent, I love the finish on top of makeup. I love that nothing in it clogs my pores. I love the vibe I get from it. I love the bottle!
I will be buying this again and again!
Thank you so much, Migraine Magick for a one of a kind product! You have saved me from the storm!
Ask your doctor and try it yourself!

Zero Waste Hair Care!
One of my favorite things after skin care. I LOVE making different shampoo bars! I'm a big fan of lather and luxurious ingredients. I'm NOT a fan of harsh ingredients or over priced things.
My hair grows fast, not the best thing for someone who has recently fallen head over heels with short short hair. Not that I don't love my long locks but for now, this is what I'm allllll about. My hair is VERY thick, naturally SUPER curly and graying. I call them my glitter. I like it.
How can you go zero waste IF you want different hair colors or frequent cuts?
My hair gal, Robin, is amazing. She was all for trying my Zero Waste hair care. She's one of those hair stylists that you trust. I didn't tell anyone when I first decided to off my mid-back length hair but her and the Smart Guy. The only opinions, other than my own, that I needed. That's trust.
Now I'm back for a trim!
I brought in my own shampoo bar and conditioning rinse. I did forget my styling cream but we didn't use any for the finished style anyway.
Here's some pointers for your on the go Zero Waste Hair Care kit!
1) Make or small, make it simple. Story of my life. Don't complicate things. We didn't even use the hair clips but I was prepared! Forgot my styling cream so next time, hard pass on the clips and bring a tin of the styling cream that I make.
2) Ask first. Don't just walk in and expect someone to go with the flow. It's just more polite, imo. Most of the time, I can't see why anyone would say no but just be cool and ask! No harm by taking the few moments before your appointment to make sure they can or will work with you.
3) If you LOVE the hair care there or just don't want to mess with bringing things, as long as you love the products they use, let them use them! Hair salons buy in bulk so that is at least LESS waste to begin with! More so than most people who buy in plastic bottles every week or month! This applies to a lot of salons and hair dye as well. Robins salon she works at buys bulk hair dye. It's hard to go zero waste and get quality hair dye at home unless you buy bulk. No shame in being pampered! If you want to make sure they buy bulk or have any questions about the products used, ask your hair person before you go and give her/him time to check and get back to you.
Even pampering can be less or Zero Waste. If I ever do my nails, it would be more eco-friendly to come to Robin's work place since, again, they buy bulk.
Highly recommend everyone think about your little luxuries. You can still be that fierce Earth Warrior and get some pampering in!
If anyone would like a few recipes on my favorite shampoo bars I make or my recipe for my conditioning rinse, let me know in the comments!
Perdy hair and things,

This day in age to be successful, you have to think successful. Creating a one-of-a-kind brand is not easy. Business card design, logos, thank you cards. You name it.
As if that's not hard enough? It's all wasteful. Really wasteful. What is a zero waster to do?
That's where FDD comes in. The owner, Michelle, has been my designer for a long time. I am completely illiterate when it comes to anything computer or graphic design... Lucky for those like me, she gave us an interview!
1) I have been a customer of Freaky DD, for a long time, is it fun to work with customers that look specifically for natural and zero waste options? Or a hassle?
I love my clients!! New and old. My favorite part about my job is that each piece is unique to each person/business. For those who love the environment like I do, it's refreshing to use natural zero waste items and shipping methods.
2) You portfolio (found on her Freaky Deaky Design Facebook page) is very diverse, do you like creating things for many different styles and businesses? Are your products limited to businesses only?
I love to help them all! To me, each business deserves a design catered especially to them, to represent what they personally stand for. I famously say that "no templates are used here". That ensures that each person/business gets the unique design they deserve.
I cater to anyone looking for design, not only businesses. I've created wedding and birthday invitations, stamps for personal book collections and so on.
3) How zero waste can we go with our printing needs (aka no plastic wrapped items, no plastic caps, etc.)?
That will depend on each item but nothing is impossible! For instance I had a client requesting all natural zero waste business cards and that's what they got! The cards were created on all natural recycled paper, recycled ink and in cardbox to ship with NO plastic. Needless to say, they were very pleased.
4) One last question, how can people help you expand your business? Zero wasters are very supportive community, many of us love to help others find options to fit their lifestyles!
Share! Let your friends and fellow business owners know of your experience with me. I'll offer them and you a discount if a sale is made. My prices are very reasonable and my turnaround rate is fast.
Thank you, Michelle, for taking the time out to let us know that there ARE eco-friendly, zero waste options for everyone! I never even though about birthday invitations! How often would we normally just pick them up from the store covered in plastic wrap? A hand designed and given invitation is far more impressive than an email.
I am personally VERY excited about the wedding invitations! Those zero waste weddings can be just as heart warming as any, all while saving the planet!
Everyone, give a shout out to Michelle over at Freaky Deaky Designs! Tell her you saw me here and get this awesmome discount!
She has a Facebook page and instagram!
