Beat Head Tension
Staring at your computer for hours or listening to kids whine after a long day can bring on nasty symptoms like light and sound sensitivity, a tight neck, and a stiff jaw. With enough triggers, these minor irritations can send most people’s tolerance over the edge. For times like these, create a roll-on chock-full of essential oils that provide relief.
Head Tension - light and sound sensitivity, a tight neck, and a stiff jaw
DIY head tension roll-on
Keep this tension buster in your purse, glove box, or on your bedside table for when symptoms surface.
Empty 10 ml roller bottle
20 drops Peppermint essential oil
20 drops M-Grain™ essential oil
10 drops Rosemary essential oil
V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex or any carrier oil
Add the essential oils to the clean and empty roller bottle.
Fill the remainder of the bottle with V-6. Pro tip: You can also make your head tension roll-on with a 5 or 15 ml empty essential oil bottle and a roller top. Clean the bottle thoroughly and adjust the recipe to create the proper ratios of essential oils to a carrier oil for the bottle size you are using. If you’re using a 5 ml bottle, subtract 5 oil drops from each of the ingredients above. Add 5 oil drops to each if you’re using a 15 ml bottle.
Tighten the lid and shake the bottle to mix the oils together.
Roll directly onto your temples, forehead, neck, and crown of your head at the first sign of tension. Avoid applying near your eyes.
Rub the oil in gently with your fingertips for a soothing massage.
