Using Lavender Essential Oil to eliminate headaches – Apply and relax
Lavender essential oil is one of the few essential oils that can be applied directly to the skin without causing irritation. Apply lavender essential oil to your temples to calm, soothe and relax you. You can massage the oil directly on your neck and shoulders to ease stress.
If you find the scent too strong, you can mix 20-30 drops of lavender essential oil in 1/2c carrier oil and apply to the temples. Any carrier oil can be used but jojoba oil, grapeseed oil or sweet almond oil is recommended.
