today’s post is super simple, but i’d love to share my DIY headache roller recipe with you. it targets headaches and relieves pain in 15 to 20 minutes.
let’s get to it!
please do consult your healthcare professional and local certified aromatherapist to ensure these EOs are okay for you (no contraindications for any ailments).
what you need:
- roller ball glass vial/container thing (found a cheap 12 pack on amazon)
- magnesium oil
- peppermint EO
- lavender EO
- fill 3/4 of the glass vial with magnesium oil
- add 8-10 drops peppermint EO
- add 6-8 drops lavender EO
the oils will separate when not in use, so just give the roller a little shake before applying. it’ll look more opaque when mixed.
to use, roll the mix directly onto your temples and wait 15 to 20 minutes for relief. reapply as necessary.
because this does contain a supplement – magnesium – watch your usage. granted, you would have to use the whole roller in one day to go over the daily “dose,” but i thought it was still worth mentioning.
this recipe won’t spoil and doesn’t need to be kept cold, so feel free to carry it around with you.
please also make sure you’re getting enough water and sleep, and taking time out to unwind 🙂
what are some other ways you relieve your headaches? let’s share and benefit so we can all be pain-free.
please note that these EOs are strong. a dilution of this percentage is okay for short-term use in pain relief, but it not suggested for long-term use. please be cautious with using EOs near the eye area. please check with a licensed aromatherapist and/or doctor before using on children, especially under 6 years of age (generally accepted age for increased dilution ratios).
