Headache Hacks

We all get them, some worse than others, but we all get Headaches! They hurt, they’re annoying, they are just a pain and nobody likes them, but they are a part of life. And when we get them most people reach for Ibuprofen or some other form of pharmaceutical remedy. Which don’t get me wrong, they have their place and doctors prescribe them all the time, but natural solutions are always better.

Headache HackHeadaches are caused by various things:

  • Dehydration
  • Allergies
  • Stress
  • Hormone Issues
  • Kids, Spouses, Work…
  • etc, etc, etc the list goes on and on

The first step to relieving any Headache is to find the underlying cause of the Headache. I always drink a big glass of water at the start of any Headache to rule out a dehydration headache. Most of the time this stops the headache for me right off the bat.

Next I usually look at how my shoulders and neck feel. If I have a lot of tension in my shoulders or neck I know that’s the source of my headache. For those types of headaches I grab doTerra’s Deep Blue (Found Here) and rub it on my shoulders and neck which usually takes care of it. Plus I like the smell of it.

After that I look at allergies. Peppermint, Lemon, and Lavender Essential Oils (Found Here) when used together are great for seasonal allergy relief.

But when all else fails, I use this Homemade Headache Relief Blend of Essential Oils in a roller ball bottle. It’s really easy to make and works on the tough Headaches that are a pain to get rid of. Here’s how you make it:


  • 20 Drops of Peppermint Essential Oil (Found Here)
  • 15 Drops of Lavender Essential Oil (Found Here)
  • 15 Drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil (Found Here)
  • 15 Drops Frankincense Essential Oil (Found Here)
  • 5 Drops CBD Oil (cannabis oil, legal in the US and most other countries Buy it Here)
  • Fractionated Coconut Oil


Simply add all the Essential Oils and CBD Oil together in a roller ball bottle and fill then fill to the top with the Fractionated Coconut Oil. Shake well to mix.

To Use:

Apply to the back of the neck, behind the ears, or on your temples making sure not to get it in your eyes. Reapply as needed.

The above mentioned Essential Oils and CBD Oil work together to naturally relieve headache pain. CBD oil is non-psychoactive, it does not contain THC , so it does not get you high. Therefore it is legal and it is a powerful at relieving chronic pain. (See also our CBD Salve article)
