Easy DIY Headache Roller

For a more natural way to treat headaches and stress, try making your own essential oil roller. The blend I use has some essential oils that can be very beneficial:

Peppermint – Helps relieve nausea and headaches, promotes respiratory health, can alleviate stress and promotes intestinal health.

Rosemary – Acts as a pain reliever, can alleviate stress, can be beneficial for the skin, great for aromatherapy and helps indigestion.

Eucalyptus – Acts as a natural decongestant, helps with mental exhaustion, can act as a pain reliever and has a refreshing scent.

Clove – Alleviates headaches, boosts the immune system, can help alleviates stress, helps with nausea, has healing properties and assists the respiratory system.

These four essential oils together, make a wonderful oil roller for headaches and stress. This roller is also great during cold season for the common cold.

Here is what you need:

Purchase an empty (dark color) essential oil roller. You can purchase these at a natural health store or at Mountain
Rose Herbs. I have included the affiliate link for easy access to their website. Get a darker color glass to preserve your essential oils as long as possible.

INGREDIENTS:Sunflower or Grapeseed oil (as your carrier oil)
Peppermint essential oil
Rosemary essential oil
Eucalyptus essential oil
Clove essential oil

DIRECTIONS:

Pour carrier oil into your essential oil roller (10ml) until it is almost to the top. Then add:

3 drops peppermint essential oil
2 drops rosemary essential oil
2 drops eucalyptus essential oil
1 drop clove

This is a STRONG blend, so do not use more than a couple times a day or on young children/elderly. For more in depth directions on how to use an essential oil roller, please click HERE.  Gently tip up and down to mix the oils well. Place roller top on and try it out!

As most of you know who follow my blog, I push organic and chemical free. Please make sure your essential oils are pure and if possible buy organic oils. You can find organic essential oils online at the Mountain Rose Herbs affiliate link in this blog. But there are other companies out there as well. Just do your research, of course!

This facial serum gives amazing results! The oils are so beneficial for the skin:

Grapeseed Oil: Grapeseed oil may not have as many healing properties as the other oils listed above. HOWEVER, it penetrates the skin very well which allows the other oils to do their job. Grapeseed oil is a very mild oil and great for sensitive skin.

Apricot Oil: Absorbs very easily. It has similar properties to almond oil. It is very nourishing and healing to the skin and also helps with fine lines.

Vitamin C: Great for the skin. Vitamin C helps eliminate fine lines and also brightens the skin. It can also help to regenerate and repair the skin.

Flax Oil: Locks in moisture and softens the skin, giving the skin a younger more youthful appearance.

Avocado Oil: Cold-pressed is best. This beneficial oil contains Omega-6 that nourishes the skin. Avocado works great as a topical oil, although eating an avocado a day can also give your skin and hair a beautiful glow. So eat them up!

Frankincense Essential Oil: Healing and regenerating. Frankincense has powerful healing properties that can reverse damage and help cells regenerate themselves.

Orange & Bergamot: Brightens and repairs the skin. Not to mention that the smell of orange relieves stress and energizes the body!
