  • 10 ml roll-on bottle


  • Combine the essential oils in a 10 mL roll-on bottle and mix. Fill the bottle the rest of the way with a carrier oil (we like jojoba, almond, or grapeseed oil).
  • Whenever you feel a headache coming on, apply the oil directly to the temples and massage into skin.
    How to use essential oils for headaches, including an easy roll on recipe blend


To use:
  1. Next time you feel a headache coming on, roll a small amount of the diluted essential oil mixture directly onto your temples and forehead. Using your fingers, massage the oils into the skin—it helps if you try to relax your body at the same time.
  2. Apply oil anywhere else you notice tension, such as along the jawline or at the base of your head where it meets your neck. 
  3. Lastly, apply the oil to your wrists (your pulse points) and breathe deeply, inhaling the fragrance directly into your lungs.
  4. Reapply the oil every 1–2 hours as needed until your headache is gone.
