I have been know to get knock you down headaches. Sometimes they are from tension, sometimes hormonal, and even on occasion from eyestrain, after a little too much screen time.
I have formulated my own special essential oil blend that makes headaches a thing of the past. What is great about this blend is it can be used on more than just headaches! The trio uses it on all kinds of things -they have rubbed it on tired muscles after dance class, on the knee area for growing pains, bruises, and more.
We apply Tension Tonic onto the sore muscles, and on the back of the neck for headaches. I do not recommend dabbing on the face/forehead, since it is so close to the eyes. You do not want this in your eyes!
It leaves behind a wonderful scent and it does tingle a bit- like a cooling sensation.
Let me share with you how I make Tension Tonic. It is super easy!
Using an empty roller bottle, fill it half full with Fractionated Coconut Oil (or other carrier oil.)
I add 15 drops of Lavender EO and 12 drops of Peppermint EO.
Push the roller ball back on and close the lid & shake it up to allow all the oils to blend.
I choose to only fill the bottle half full, first to allow room for the essential oils. But also so there is room to shake it gently to make sure the oils are all mixed together before each application.
Now you are ready to tame that headache with Tension Tonic!
