Simply Savvy Blog | Young Living | headache eraser

Sinuses, allergies, lack of sleep, dehydration, the holidays, family visits, school functions, writing content for 4 blogs, re-developing a website, the seemingly endless to-do lists….basically ANYthing I do can, and DOES, result in some type of headache…often.

No matter what the cause, having any kind of headache instantly throws a major curveball in my day (or several days sometimes), and I am NOT a fan of taking any type of medication with regularity for plenty of reasons (side effects, building a tolerance, chemicals, establishing a dependence…just to name a few).

My determination to find a healthy, natural remedy for these headaches (aside from reducing stress) led me to trying a range of essential oils. I had been using essential oils for years for various “home remedy” types of things; however, I was totally oblivious to the idea of creating recipes by using a combination of essential oils.

I, very wisely, purchased a Premium Starter Kit from Young Living Essential Oils and immediately set out to find the perfect headache recipe for me…well, it didn’t take long at all (thankfully!).

Headache Eraser Roll-on

What you’ll need: 1 empty (and clean) roll-on container, Peppermint essential oil, Frankincense essential oil, Lavender essential oil and a carrier oil, which is needed for dilution…I used sweet almond oil.

How to make it: Combine 20 drops of Peppermint, 20 drops of Frankincense, and 10 drops of Lavender essential oils directly into the roll-on bottle, then fill the remainder of the bottle with the carrier oil you choose. Shake well to blend.

How to use it: Roll directly onto the location(s) of the headache.

This eraser has not failed me yet! I have used it 10+ times over the past few months and my headaches have consistently subsided within just a few moments…and totally GONE within minutes.

I use sweet almond oil frequently to dilute essential oils that I plan to apply topically. I get mine here (paid link).

Roll-ons allow me to take, and use, my essential oil recipes anywhere I go. I have had consistent success with these (paid link).

1. Head on over to the sign-up page.

2. Select Sign up as: “Wholesale Member” (this will get you 24% off forever & always!)

3. It should be done for you, but just to be safe, make sure that my member number is both the Sponsor ID & Enroller ID: 2187729

4. Fill out your name, billing & shipping address, SSN, and contact info. (Your SSN will never be used unless you make over $600/year selling Young Living products, in which case they’d send you a 1099 as required by law at the end of the year. And never fear!

Pain Cream Recipe Using Young Living Essential Oils

As unfortunate as it is, I have recently realized that I am indeed getting older (boo!) and am experiencing more and more general aches and pains.

I, quite often, have mid-back pain (I’d love to think it’s just from sleeping on a bad mattress, haha) that I have simply been tolerating because I can’t stand the thought of taking pain medication on a regular basis. I had tried several topical creams to relieve it, but they were comprised of nothing but chemicals I couldn’t pronounce, and realized that I had NO CLUE about what exactly it was I was putting onto my body.

After doing some research, I found that there were quite a few homemade pain creams out there that were made up of totally natural ingredients. I read through, what seemed like, hundreds of reviews and testimonials of these products improving the pain and general health of many people.

So I decided to give it a chance, and ordered the Premium Starter Kit from Young Living Essential Oils, and the day I received it was the day my family’s physical, mental and spiritual health began improving….sounds a little dramatic, but that is the TRUTH.

One of the first things I made was the pain cream I’d read so much about. I whipped it up and had my husband apply it to my back, and within minutes the pain in my back and across my shoulders was totally GONE! And not to mention, I smelled amazing.

Here’s the recipe I used:

3/4 c organic, unrefined coconut oil (paid link)

10 drops each of PanAway, Valor and Peppermint

I heated the coconut oil in a glass bowl in the microwave (didn’t take long since it liquefies at 75 degrees). Removed the bowl from the microwave, added the oils, stirred very well (some even whip it together using a hand mixer when the coconut oil is a little more hardened), then poured the mixture into a glass jar (which was an empty coconut oil jar).

NOTE: to make the recipe a little more concentrated, use 2 Tablespoons coconut oil as opposed to 3/4 c.

This pain cream works well on muscle soreness from exercise as well.
