Personal Story Time Y’all, I’m gonna be real here. Mom life will give you the worst headache, and that is exactly what I’m dealing with as I write this. My 2 year old has decided sleep is for wussies. 2 weeks of no sleep for anyone in our house, and my mom brain is out of control. I’m running on coffee, and love. This post actually was scheduled to publish before I had a chance to finish it (so if you were one of the first to see it…my apologies. Yes, I did forget all the pictures and the recipe). So, a true testament to this recipe, the photos are me with a real live headache and no make up living the mom life. I AM using the oil and feel much better.
Essential Oil Headache Relief Blend
Understanding Headaches – The Basics
There are quite a few different kinds of headaches, and sometimes they require different remedies. While this roller blend is fabulous, sometimes the more direct, simple remedy is best…such as drinking water.
Often you can tell what kind of headache you have by where it appears, when it shows up, and how it behaves.
Did you know 75% of people are chronically dehydrated?! Because of this, dehydration headaches are the most common kind of headache. They are easy to pick out because of where they show up. Front and center in your forehead and behind your eyes.
This Essential Oil Headache Relief Blend is a fabulous compliment, but your headache will not go away without drinking plenty of water and adding some electrolytes to your diet.

Eye Strain Headaches
Have you been spending too much time in front of the computer or your phone? Headaches are a common side effect of eye strain. This is another case where the most simple remedy is best. Step away from the electronics!
You’ll notice these headaches look a bit like dehydration headaches but are more concentrated behind the eyes. take breaks from the electronics and rest your eyes. The roller blend will help ease the pain.
About 60% of women suffer from Menstrual Migraines. These headaches are also common during perimenopause and menopause. This is due to fluctuating hormone levels.
Use the essential oil headache relief roller on the back of your neck and on the the bottom of your feet to help relieve the pain.
Some people just carry all their stress in their shoulders and head. If you’re feeling pain creep up from your shoulders and into your neck and head, or even if you feel it in your cheeks and temples from clenching your teeth, you probably have a tension headache.
The peppermint in this blend is a topical analgesic, which means it’s a pain reliever and can relax your muscles! Roll it wherever you feel the tension and feel it melt away
Migraines are their own special animal and can be a bit finicky as to when and how they want to go away. Many different things can set them off, a certain food, such a gluten, stress, hormones, and many other factors. They come with a full range of symptoms including nausea, sensitivity to sound, smell, and light, tunnel vision, and more.
