Headache? Try Essential Oils.

by Andrea Butje on January 16, 2013

essential oils for headachesHeadaches can have different triggers. Sometimes it's muscle tension, sometimes it's emotional stress, other times it can be food related. One thing all headaches have in common is that we want the pain to leave. Fast.

In a previous blog post, I shared a way to use essential oils for headaches by blending Peppermint and Frankincense in Trauma Oil. I also shared how to make an inhaler with Rosewood or Eucalyptus. I still see great results with this approach.

Now I have a few more ways to use essential oils for headaches, based on what's triggering the pain.

These are all inhaler recipes, so they're easy to make, mess free, and easy to pop in your purse or pocket and carry around. You can keep them in your drawer at work, which is really convenient if your headaches tend to come on at the office.

Muscle Tension

6 drops Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis ct. camphor)
6 drops Black Spruce (Picea mariana)
3 drops Peppermint (Mentha x piperita)

Emotional Stress

5 drops Frankincense (Boswellia carterii)
5 drops Spike Lavender (Lavandula latifolia)
4 drops Orange (Citrus sinensis)
1 drop Neroli (Citrus aurantium var. amara)


7 drops Roman Chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile)
5 drops Cardamom (Ellettaria cardamomum)
3 drops Peppermint (Mentha x piperita)
