Essential Oil Roller for Headaches

This DIY essential oil roller for headaches is a the best headache remedy ever! Lavender and peppermint are combined with other essential oils that are proven to help relieve headaches and muscle tension.

This is a blend I NEVER leave behind when I leave the house!

Young Living lavender and marjoram are both classified as natural health products in Canada to help relieve headaches. Peppermint is very cooling on the temples, and copaiba helps magnify the effects of the other oils in this blend. Helichrysum acts as a nervine and calmative on the nervous system.

My family has found this headache remedy to be extremely useful, and quick to relieve headaches. This blend can be made in a 10 ml roller bottle, diluted in Young Living V6.

I always keep this roll-on close at hand when I’m at work or travelling, because it’s good for so many different things. Try using it on sore muscles, after your workout, upset stomach, or just as a calming scent at the end of the day before bed.

How to blend oils in a roller bottle

These recipe is based on a 10 ml roller bottle. The best way to blend oils is:

  • fill the roller bottle 1/2 way with Young Living V6, fractionated coconut oil (or your choice of carrier oil – sweet almond oil is also nice)
  • add the essential oils
  • fill the remaining space with your carrier oil

How to use

Roll on your temples, chest, wrists and neck. If you have an upset stomach or nausea due to migraine – roll this blend onto your stomach as well.
