DIY Roll On Headache Relief - Essential Oil Blend Recipe

Looking for a natural way to calm a headache and promote relaxation? Try this Roll On Headache Relief blend made with essential oils.

Essential oils are a wonderful, natural option for headaches and stress related pains. They have the ability to promote calmness, ease muscle discomforts, elevate mood, and improve overall well-being.

This essential oil blend is made in an easy to use, mess free roll on bottle. Not only are roller bottle blends easy to make, but also convenient to take on the go.

Easily slip in a purse, backpack, desk drawer, or even a pocket. Be sure the cap is screwed on tightly to prevent leaks.

While leaving in a car may seem like a convenient place, it is a bad idea in warm-hot weather. Never leave essential oil in a hot vehicle, they can overheat causing deterioration of your precious oils or cause them to leak out of bottle.

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil is a favorite carrier oil of mine for use in roller bottle recipes. It is actually a wax and not an oil, so it has a long shelf life. Plus there is really no aroma so it lets the essential oils in the blend really shine through! Read more about jojoba oil.
