Cost: $8


  • 10 ml roller bottle


  • Combine the essential oils in a 10 ml roller 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.


To use:
  1. Next time you feel a headache coming on, roll a small amount of the diluted essential oil mixture directly onto the temples and forehead. Using your fingers, massage the oils into 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 jaw line or at the base of your head where it meets your neck. 
  3. Lastly, apply essential oil to your wrists (your pulse points) and breathe deeply, inhaling the fragrance directly into your lungs.
  4. Re-apply the oil every 1–2 hours as needed until your headache is gone.
