Dealing with a migraine is no fun. I’ve had a few in my life, more lately unfortunately. Pretty sure its related to the amount of time that I spend staring at my laptop screen.
While I love my work and blogging, there are times where its a little too much and can trigger a migraine. When this happens I reach for the handy dandy Migraine Relief Roller I absolutely love and keep on hand to try and nip the building pain in the bud.
Works fast and helps me with my headache pain in a way that other headache relief
DIY Essential Oils Migraine Relief Roller Recipe:
Supplies you’ll need:
- 1 tablespoon Vitamin E oil
- 5-10 drops helichrysum essential oil*
- 5-10 drops eucalyptus essential oil*
- 5-10 drops frankincense essential oil*
- 5-10 drops copaiba essential oil*
- 5-10 drops lavender essential oil*
- Roller ball container (I love this set!)
Optional: swap out the Vitamin E oil with coconut oil or the lavender oil for peppermint oils. They’ll also work to relieve headaches and provide pain relief, if you’re just looking for a different combination.
*I use Young Living Essential Oils for all my essential oil DIY’s. You can check out my YL page here for more details 🙂 I’m always learning new things about just how amazing essential oils are, but I am far from an expert and am not here trying to dispense advice for health problems–just sharing my natural remedies for tension headaches I have so frequently. I am happy to share what I know with my readers, but always encourage you to do your own research!
DIY Essential Oils Migraine Relief Roller Instructions:
In a small mixing bowl, add Vitamin E oil.
Add helichrysum essential oil (This oil has analgesic qualities and anti-inflammatory properties. It can soothe nerves, alleviate spasms or nerve issues like twitching. I get tense muscles that can spasm or twitch at my temples. This is helpful!)
Add eucalyptus essential oil (If your migraine is due to sinus issues, this oil can help relieve sinus pressure. It can also lift your mood and promote emotional balance)
Add frankincense essential oil (This oil can help reduce the swelling of the blood vessels and aid in the reduction of the pain of a migraine)
Add copaiba essential oil (This oil has been shown to help reduce pain and loosen muscles and even ease the discomfort of headaches and migraines)
Add lavender essential oil (Because many migraines can be stress related, lavender will help relax and calm you and can help you get to sleep)
Whisk everything together.
Using a dropper, add mixture to roller container. Top with ball and lid.
Roll on temples and/or forehead or use them in a diffuser to relieve migraine pain.

Cherryl Ehlenburg says
I can’t wait to try this! I get occasional migraines, and I always reach for the Excedrin. But there have been a few times, like after a procedure, that I couldn’t take that, and so I start looking for home remedies. Maybe this will be my go-to!

Thanks for this recipe for migraine relief. I have never used essential oils for migraines before.
Christie Hawkes says
I use a few essential oils in a diffuser, because I like the smell. I haven’t actually tried to combat a headache with them. I do get the occasional migraine and it might be worth a try. Thanks Jennifer. I came across your blog on the Blogger’s Pit Stop. Have a lovely day!

Thank you so much for sharing this! I know so many people suffer from migraines unfortunately, so this is very helpful!
This looks very nice.
I have tried several different blends for my migraines, but they don’t contain the same ingredients as yours. It’s such a trial and error process with migraines.
I currently use the Past Tense from DoTerra. It does not take the headache, but helps to cool the temples and does help a bit.
thank you for sharing!
