That's what I paid for an essential oil “migraine stick” the other day.
It really works so I want to keep using it… but I don't want to spend $9 every time I need a new one!
Guess what's in it? Essential oils in a carrier oil.
Sounds easy enough… so let's make one!
And psst…. we're going to save a bundle! By my calculations, even including the investment of the roll-on bottle, this homemade headache stick costs only $3! And only $2 if you already own the roll-on bottle.
The print recipe is just below the video. 🙂
Essential Oil Roll-On Headache Stick
- 10 mL roll-on bottle, empty (get it here)
- 10 to 30 drops peppermint essential oil — (or a combination of peppermint and lavender in equal parts)
- carrier oil — such as avocado oil, jojoba oil, or fractionated coconut oil
Put essential oil(s) in the roll-on bottle. Add a carrier oil to the shoulder of the jar (don't overfill). Put the roll-on top in place — it helps to press it in with a towel, then screw the cap on top to get it all the way on.
Tip upside down a few times to mix.
To use: roll on temples or other pressure points, then massage in to relieve pain.
About the concentration: In the video I show using 30 drops of essential oil; since then I modified the concentration to 10 drops. Check out this comment where Nicola shares more about the lower concentration.
