Headache Relief using Essential Oils

Headaches can be so overwhelming and debilitating.  I’ve experienced bad ones for years, and have tried many remedies, but unless I catch a headache before it really begins, I seem doomed to suffer until the next day.   The last time, though, I tried something that actually helped cut my headache short, and left me feeling better in about an hour.

I took two aspirin, and then ran a bath as hot as I could stand it and put about 20-30 drops of our Headache Relief Blend in the water (note: be sure this is either pre-mixed massage blend, or that you dilute the pure essential oil into a carrier before using in the bath).  I relaxed in the water lying with my spine as straight as I could with my head mostly underwater. I could feel the slight tingle of the mint on my scalp. After about 20 minutes I felt my headache was gone.  I rested for another 30 minutes outside of the bath and felt completely normal.  This is now the first treatment I turn to when I feel a headache coming on.

  • I mix peppermint and wintergreen in a small bowl. After that I smell the oils and apply it on the back of my neck and bottoms of my feet and it does wonders! If your skin is sensitive to these oils you can add a carrier oil to dilute it like olive oil.
