Today I’m sharing 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. Eden’s Garden 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! :-)
