Quick Guide To Heachade Remedies Using Essential Oils
Some essential oils can reduce stress, which can alleviate tension headaches, or soothe pain.
When using your essential oils for a headache always dilute to your needs.
Parts of your body like your temples and forehead can be particularly sensitive.
The following is a quick guide to different preferred blends for headache remedies.
Common Dilution Methods:
When diluting with fractioned coconut oil try using 5 drops per 30 mls of Coconut oil.
For stronger oils like Past Tense, you may want to dilute even more.
Rubbed Into The Temples:
- Peppermint + Past Tense & Lavender
- Lavender + 1 drop Peppermint + 1 drop Frankincense
- Past Tense
- Peppermint + Wild Orange & Lavender
- Peppermint + Lavender & Eucalyptus
- Wintergreen and Peppermint
Rubbed Into The Neck For Tension Headache:
- Deep Blue Oil
- Past Tense
- Peppermint & Chamomile
- Peppermint & Rosemary
Applying Your Oils Safely:
Essential oils are generally regarded as safe, and many have much fewer side effects in comparison to most traditional migraine and headache pharmacy medications. It’s still important you use your oils wisely, avoid rubbing the oils too closely to your eye and mouth area and always mix well after diluting.
