Homemade Headache Cream

Lavender Headache Balm


1/4 cup coconut oil - not fractionated

1 tsp shea butter, cocoa butter, or a mixture of the two

12 drops peppermint essential oil

12 drops lavender essential oil

small wide-mouthed jar or small tins


Place coconut oil and shea or cocoa butter in a glass bowl and place over a pot of hot water, creating a makeshift double boiler.

Heat until completely melted. Add the essential oils and pour into small containers. Allow it to cool on the counter top. Label and cover when cool.

To use, simply swipe fingers across the top of the top of the headache balm and apply to your temples or forehead for relief. This may seem greasy at first, but it will be absorbed quickly.
