WELCOME to “Save My Sanity SUNDAY” at One Good Thing By Jillee….where I attempt to avoid having a nervous breakdown by actually giving myself a day off from blogging once a week! These posts are usually reserved for Saturdays but I have a raging migraine tonight and just didn’t have the strength to get my regular post done. In honor of my aching head I wanted to share my favorite all-natural headache remedy made with essential oils. So pull up a chair, sit back, and enjoy an “oldie but goodie” from the One Good Thing By Jillee archives.

Since I had to postpone the post I was GOING to do today….until tomorrow…I decided to do a quickie afteroon post and let you know about an essential oil blend that has saved my sanity lately. I am one of those “fortunate” people who get headaches often. I always have a bottle of Excedrin in my purse just in case. Last week I had a headache that wasn’t budging! Excedrin hadn’t touched it, I even tried some Lavender and Peppermint essential oil on my temples and it helped a little, but the headache persisted. My sister Dori (Riches To Rags by Dori) did a little research and came up with a Headache Buster Blend and brought me a roller bottle of it. I applied it to my temples, my forehead and the back of my neck and within 10-15 minutes the headache was gone. It started to come back about 30 minutes later, so I reapplied and after that it was gone for good.
So as my abbreviated and tardy post today…I give to you….the Headache Buster Blend.

I’m convinced the addition of Birch essential oil in this blend is what made all the difference. Like I said above, I tried Lavender and Peppermint with only marginal success…but Birch, I have learned, is a powerful natural pain reliever. It’s also fairly hard to get ahold of. Spark Naturals recently obtained some, but unfortunately it’s ALMOST sold out. Only small bottles left now. But they assure me they are working on getting more. Just a little FYI there for ya! :-)
