Effective And Easy Essential Oil Blends For Headaches

I use a variety of essential oils each week.

Sometimes, I diffuse an oil to freshen the air or I grab Lavender for a burn.

Recently, I slathered on Lavender and Peppermint when I had a headache but it didn’t quite work.

So I went searching for other oils to add to the blend.

I ended up adding Frankincense because it’s what I had on hand and it helped.

There are a few different combinations of essential oils you can try to help relieve your headaches.

Don’t be afraid to experiment to see what works for you.

Try these essential oils recipes when you have a headache.

Which Essential Oil Brands To Use

There are many safe essential oil brands on the market to use.

Typically a referral from a friend or a blogger your trust is the way to go.

I’ve used many brands over the years and generally return to Isagenix, Plant Therapy or Simply Earth (read my review here) to purchase my oils.

If you wish to purchase a blend specifically for headaches try the Head Soothing Essential Oil Blend from Simply Earth. 

This Is My Current Diffuser

My favorite diffuser is this one I got on Amazon almost 3 years ago. 

I use it almost daily and it still works great.

My diffuser

I purchased this one last year because it was on sale.

If you see it for less than $20 then buy it because it’s a great diffuser for your kid’s room.

My girls love it because it changes colors or they can turn the light off.

Should You Use A Carrier Oil?

I usually don’t use a carrier oil on myself but I use one when I use essential oils on my daughters.

So far the best combination for my daughter who gets migraines is a roller blend of  Coconut oil, 5 drops of  Lavender and 5 drops Peppermint.

She keeps it by her bed and in her purse.

Be sure to test all oils before you decide to use them straight on your skin because some oils can burn sensitive skin.

If you are sensitive to an oil wash it off with coconut oil or olive oil.

Do not attempt to wash off an essential oil with water.

Remember to experiment to see what works best for you. 

Start with just peppermint and if it doesn’t work alone then start adding other oils until you get just the right blend for you.
