I have suffered from headaches most of my life.  Even as a child I would get allergy headaches, then as a teenager I started to get sinus headaches and hormone-triggered headaches from PMS, and in college I started to get tension headaches from the stress of balancing a job with all the studying.  And then in my 30s I started getting migraine headaches.

I have tried over-the-counter pills, prescription medicine, home remedies, and more.

But it wasn’t until discovering essential oils a few years ago that I finally found something that not only worked  to treat my headaches but was also natural, non-toxic, and safe.  Finally, a headache remedy that I could feel good about using!

I love using the natural headache relief balm that recipe below, but at times, I prefer to use headache-relief roller bottle or essential oil inhaler.  Find recipes and instruction for how to make those headache rollerballs and inhalers below:

Essential oils for headache relief

peppermint essential oil– Peppermint essential oil is a great natural home remedy for headaches.  Headaches can be brought on by poor blood flow.  Peppermint essential oil has vasodilating properties that help relax blood vessels, increase blood flow, and reduce headache pain.  Peppermint in also a great natural pain killer.  And peppermint is a natural muscle relaxant, which is stops muscle contractions and helps get rid of headaches.  It’s helpful at easing symptoms related to all kinds of headaches- tension headaches, stress headaches, migraines, sinus headaches, and allery-triggered headaches.

lavender essential oil– Lavender is wonderful for relaxation and calming, which can help ease stress and soothe headache pain.  Plus lavender essential oil helps improve blood circulation, calms and reduces stress and tension, reduces inflammation, soothes sore tired muscles, and provides temporary pain relief.  Like peppermint, lavender essential oil helps soothe and relieve many kinds of headaches.  It’s calming properties are great for helping stop tension headaches, and it’s said to be the best essential oil for treating allergy-triggered headaches.

frankincense essential oil– Frankincense helps boost the immune system, reduce stress, improve sleep, decrease inflammation and pain, and balance hormones (a common trigger of headaches in women both during PMS and menopause).  Many people report success with using frankincense essential oil home remedies like this to treat migraines.

Roman chamomile essential oil– Great for promoting a sense of calm and relaxation.  It also has analgesic properties that help lessen headache pain.  Roman Chamomile is particularly helpful in treating stress-related tension headaches.

step 2:  melt the beeswax and oil mixture

Place the measuring cup in a saucepan that has 1-2 inches of water in the bottom.  Heat the water to over medium low heat until it’s simmering.  Stir the mixture occasionally as it melts.  Make sure to continue heating until the beeswax is completely melted.  If the beeswax isn’t completely melted, it can re-harden and the headache balm could become grainy.
