What I found was many posts on Instagram, Pinterest, etc. that discussed the benefits of a plethora of essential oils. So while there was a great deal of information out there, I did find it somewhat confusing because it was as if they all assumed everyone knew what to do with these oils! (Maybe they do and I am the odd duck out).
So finally I took the plunge and tried out just placing lavender on the side of my head and the back of my neck. I had some relief, but nothing drastic. Further research had me trying some other single oils as well, but not major relief. But then..oh then I found a series of blends to try out. I did the blend below and found it to be a great aid in lessening the impact of my headaches.
Headache Roller Ball Blend
- Fractionated Coconut Oil.
*I found many different blends that used different amounts of each of these. I used a 10ml roller ball and did about 30-40 drops of Lavender and Peppermint and 20 drops of Frankincense. I used less of the Frankincense solely because that is a pricier oil! After I placed the drops in the container I filled the rest of the container with the carrier oil (fractionated coconut oil)
*I found my roller-ball at a local health food store. Mine is a clear glass container.*
*I use DoTerra essential oils and sell them because I was so impressed by the product and benefits I experienced using them. So if you are interested you can find my website HERE, but if you have your own essential oils, vendor, etc. or just want to research more I still hope you found this post helpful!*
Do I still get headaches? Yes, but they seem to not last as long and they do not leave as severe side affects once gone. Now I still try to cut the noise, drink more water, do deep breathing, etc., but I wanted to share my story with this blend as I have enjoyed some benefits from adding this to my routine when I have headaches!
Do you have any favorite essential oils or blends? How do you use them? Let me know!
Until my next post..love y'all!!
