An essential oil headache relief roller can be very handy to keep around the house when a headache flairs up. It is so fast and easy to make a DIY oil roller right at home.
DO HEADACHE RELIEF ROLLERS WORK?
A headache relief roller is filled with a recipe of essential oils. Many people swear by the use of oils and feel that they assist with many headaches and much more.
The essential oils found in a headache relief roller are typically lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus and rosemary.
Headaches usually have a trigger of some kind that kicks the headache off in your body. It may be stress, hormones, allergies, physical exertion, foods, sinus pressure or even sensory stimuli. I think we can agree there are many types of headaches!
Lavender and rosemary are known to assist with pain and also help ease tension. These are also commonly used to treat PMS and hormonal imbalances.
Peppermint has a cooling effect and when applied to the forehead it can help increase blood flow to that area.
Eucalyptus oils are known to be an expectorant and definitely helps if the headache is due to sinuses or allergies.
HOW DO I APPLY THE HEADACHE RELIEF ROLLER?
Using a headache relief roller is so easy.
All you have to do is remove the lid and roll the roller portion on the temples, back of neck and shoulders. These are the areas that seem to really help when you have headaches and migraines.
I love how convenient it is to carry an essential oil headache relief roller with me in my purse.
I have found it especially good to have when I travel. There have been countless headaches on flights and the essential oil headache roller has helped!
Tension headaches are also common for me and this roller has been known to reduce pain.
Using the oil blend in a roller bottle keeps the oils off my hands and only where I want them to be!

HOW TO MAKE AN ESSENTIAL OIL HEADACHE RELIEF ROLLER
I am not an expert at essential oils, but one thing I know is that this is a very easy oil project to get started on.
Who doesn’t love a DIY that only takes minutes from start to finish!
STEP ONE: MIX ESSENTIAL OILS
Start off with a small bowl and add 10 drops of lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus and rosemary essential oils to the bowl.
Add the carrier oil to the small bowl and stir to mix all the liquids together. You only need enough carrier oil to fill the roller bottle. This is typically one ounce or less.

It is time to add the mixture to the roller container.
Take a dropper and use it to transfer the essential oil mixture from the bowl to the roller container.
Place the ball on the top of the container and then put the lid on top.
STEP THREE: ROLL IT ON FOR RELIEF
Now all you have to do is grab your headache relief roller and apply the oils to your temples, shoulders and back of the neck.

1 thought on “Essential Oil Headache Relief Roller”
Would this be okay for my 12 year old and 15 year olds to use? I keep a roller in my purse that isn’t specifically for headaches but it has lavender in it and I find that it works to keep me calmer in various situations (like crazy traffic). I purchased it through a demonstration and don’t have the recipe so I don’t know the exact amounts of each oil – only the ones that were used.
Also, it has worked when my daughter has an itchy mosquito bite!
