DIY Headache Roll On!

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 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 mine with me everywhere I go!

Headache Busting Essential Oils!

Peppermint Essential Oil is extremely fast when it comes to soothing pain.  I always keep a bottle of peppermint by my side to relieve cramps, find out more HERE.  With it’s cooling sensation, it brings much needed relief, quickly.

Lavender Essential Oil is incredibly effective in relieving pain, and also contains relaxing properties.  So many headaches come from tension-Lavender helps relax muscles so the pain can be released.

Frankincense Essential Oil is especially helpful with reducing swelling. This oil can reduce the swelling of the blood vessels and reduces the pain of a headache!

Copaiba Essential Oil is an incredible oil to reduce inflammation. It might be the most powerful inflammation busting oils there is! This oil has been shown to reduce pain and loosen muscles and even ease the discomfort of headaches and migraines. Learn more about it HERE. 

Eucalyptus Essential Oil has menthol action to help relive pain much like peppermint essential oil.  If your migraine is due to sinus issues, this oil can relieve sinus pressure.

How to use your Essential Oil 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 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!

    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.

      Yikes Winona! Thanks for telling me that-I’m going to send this recipe to my essential oil company and see what they suggest. Stay tuned!

    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?

    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.
