Headache Balm

Headache Balm Recipe

With just a few ingredients, you can make an effective headache balm that will work well and cost you very little.



  1. Place coconut oil and shea or cocoa butter in a glass bowl and place over a pot of hot water, creating a makeshift double boiler.
  2. Heat until completely melted. Add the essential oils and pour into small containers. Allow it to cool on the countertop. Label and cover when cool.

To use, simply swipe fingers across the top of the headache balm and apply to temples or forehead for relief. This may seem greasy at first, but it will be absorbed quickly.


Always use caution when working with pure essential oils. Do a patch test first to see if you are allergic to an essential oil if you have not used it before. If using with children under 12, use half the amount of essential oils.
