Essential Oils for Your Head | @VeggieConverter

These five essential oils can allow calming while promoting a sense of well-being, particularly in the head and neck areas.

1. Peppermint: Peppermint essential oil is my first stop. The tingling of the peppermint oil can promote a sense of well-being, particularly in the head and neck areas when applied topically. 

2. Lavender: Lavender is soothing and relaxing.  It is a great aid for relaxing and winding down before bedtime, yet has balancing properties that can also boost stamina and energy.

3. Deep Relief: The deep relief essential oils blend includes Peppermint, lemon, copaiba, clove, helichrysum and wintergreen, which play an integral part of healing in this blend.. Deep Relief Roll-On is a blend of oils specially formulated to relieve muscle soreness and tension.

4. M-Grain: My all-time favorite is a blend of basil, marjoram, lavender, peppermint, Roman chamomile and helichrysum called M-Grain. I absolutely love this blend. I rub this stuff neat on my temples, forehead, back of neck and around my eye (not too close!). M-Grain™ is calming while promoting a sense of well-being, particularly in the head and neck areas when applied topically.

5. M-Bomb: I’ve only had to use this little beauty once. But boy did I need it. I took a M-bomb: 5 drops each of Frankincense, Idaho Balsam Fir and Copaiba essential oils in a vegetable capsule.

BONUS. Thieves: A blend of clove, lemon, cinnamon, Eucalyptus radiata and rosemary, is Thieves oil blend. Lately when I have humidity-triggered or sinus pressure in my head, I put a drop of thieves essential oil on my thumb and press it into the roof of my mouth. It works quickly and effectively.

Aromatherapy has lauded peppermint, eucalyptus, and lavender for centuries for head wellness. A tincture of lavender called “Palsy Drops” was recognized by the British Pharmacopoeia for more than 200 years and used by physicians to relieve muscle spasms, nervousness, and headaches until the 1940s. At that point,  herbs and aroma preparations fell out of favor and chemicals became more prominent.

Another thing I use is a cold compress on the area and/or a hot bath including Epsom salts. Epsom salts allow magnesium to soak into the skin.
