DIY Headache Roll On with Essential Oils

Sharing is caring!

essential oil headache roll on recipe

Headaches are such a bummer.  Unfortunately, I get them all the time-I can’t wear a pony-tail without a headache and I do all my blog posts via the sofa despite my new office space!  I had to find a way to relieve the pain without popping a pill all the time!

It’s definitely high time for an DIY essential oil headache roll on recipe.

This essential oil blend has been a life saver.  It’s one of those things where you could kick yourself for not making it sooner.  It’s literally immediate relief and when you put it in a 10ml roller bottle, it just couldn’t be more convenient. I carry my DIY headache roll on with me everywhere I go!

How to use your DIY Headache Roll On:

The roll-on should be rolled on the exact area where the pain is coming from.  Repeat as often as necessary.  I’m always applying to the back of my neck and even shoulders.  The temples and forehead are also great places to apply.  Since it’s in a handy roll-on bottle, you can take it anywhere and be only seconds away from pain relief!!

I love making roll-on blends of essential oils!  Essential oils can be so incredibly effective, not to mention natural.  By incorporating essential oils in your life, you are reducing synthetic drugs as well as side effects!

I typically get my essential oils from Mountain Rose Herbs but I have been using Plant Therapy lately and really loving them. They have free shipping and organic oil options. I still love MRH but I prefer the free and faster shipping!

8 thoughts on “DIY Headache Roll On with Essential Oils”

  1. I get terrible headaches from time to time and i can’t function with them! I hate taking pills too and often use peppermint essential oil and it seems to provide some relief. Thanks for sharing this blend, I need to try it!

  2. I’m new to essential oils but have done quite a bit of research so I was wondering if this recipe for an oz or for a 10 ml roll on bottle. I wondered because Wintergreen and/or Birch, from what I’ve read, says to use only a 5% soln/oz of the two combined since they both contain methyl salicylate, and this would be double that per oz. Plus it seems like an awful lot of Peppermint and lavender. Thanks for your help.

  3. The amount of drops for this headache blend seem excessive for a 10 ml bottle. I was told About 8 to 10 drops for a 15 ml bottle is sufficient. So a combined total of 90 drops of the oils seems like so much. I see by the comment from Winona that she’s also concerned. Hope to hear back from u soon. Also if I can’t find Birch amongst the brands I buy from, can I use a substitute?

  4. As a professionsl aromatherapist I’m surprised to see such a large volume of essential oil used in this recipe, without a clear indication of how much carrier oil needs to be added. While the essential oils used may be helpful they must be blended with an approipriate amount of carrier oil to safely deliver them into the body without harm. I wouldn’t use more than a 5% dilution of these essential oils.

  5. Hello dear Jenni, such a fabulous blog!!! Have just started the aromatherapy journey, but am very excited!! The primary reason to venture into it is since I too love all things natural, secondly, my Dad has major headache issues. Really want to help him, so would be a great help if you could give some feedback on your headache roll on recipe as promised ( since the quantities were in doubt) . Thanks soo much. God bless.

    1. Nam-I have stuck with these quantities. Do I see as much relief as I do with something like IB Profen? No but when you get headaches often, this roll on is a must since it’s so much better for you and does provide relief that is almost immediate! Good luck for your dad!
