Back in early 2013 a superb headache buster blend was born of my littlest sister Dori's concern for one of her big sister's big time headaches. I shared it with you, my blogger sister Jillee shared it with her readers and all three of us now rely on this blend for blogger's headache!

"Headache blend = MIRACLE!!!  Had a nasty headache all day. Took Excedrin, tried Lavender and Peppermint. Nothing worked. Today was awful! I was getting sick to my stomach from all the Excedrin then I noticed the bottle of the Headache Buster on my desk you left and tried it. I'm at Walmart now no headache. Amazing Thank you!!" - Jillee
Note - I changed the original carrier oil from Fractionated Coconut Oil to a dry oil that actually nourishes the skin: organic, unrefined, cold pressed Rosehip Seed Oil. FCO will work but I promise you, you'll love how RHSO absorbs into your skin without leaving a shiny residue which is important if you're applying topically to temples and forehead.
 
I want to mention before I wrap this up that I do believe it’s important to dilute this blend – it’s very potent but, there are those among us who need more than moderation for debilitating pain. I happen to believe that a strong EO blend used topically (in this case) is safer than assaulting the body with OTC extra strength meds for any amount of relief. My Dad was rushed to the ER because of partial intestine die off due to long term OTC pain reliever use – that OTC was EVELA ---> (spelled backwards). We need to be our own advocates and listen to our body rather than the chatter online. That said, there are precautions to be aware of…

*Wintergreen and Birch should not be used if you are allergic to aspirin or on blood thinners. *Caution: People with epilepsy should avoid Birch Essential Oil because of it's high concentration of methyl salicylate. This oil should also be avoided during pregnancy. A patch test on your skin before using this blend topically is recommended.

One more suggestion! I really like this blend in a roller bottle - it just makes everything more convenient when you're targeting points like temples, forehead or suboccipital triangle. TIP: If you don't have Wintergreen essential oil, double up Birch to 20 drops and vice versa if you don't have Birch. Both are high in methyl salicylate.

Thanks bunches for this!!
Rebecca, what are your thoughts about inhalers? I do read different bits,about folks using them, and have also read that inhalation is another good way to benefit the oils. I have to admit i’m a bit skeptical about smell vs application, but at the same time, have made a couple because I was excited to see if it worked. Anyhow… I was wondering if this mixture before the C/O was added would offer as much or any, benefits if it was added to an inhaler?? I do love smelling my oils, but i’m not sure i’ve ever noticed a reaction to any of them.

Thank you so much for posting this! A few years ago I bought a kit from Dori that contained Jeddy’s Blend, Headache Buster and Healing Stick. I just used the last of the Healing Stick and getting low on Headache Buster and Jeddy’s Blend. I’m astonished how long they lasted! But this Headache Buster? It’s a lifesaver! I have not taken any aspirin, acetaminophen, etc. for well over two years and feel so much better! I’m so grateful to you both for all of these blends.

Thank you! Use lots of your recipes daily and love them all. Your recipe for Birch Pain Relief really helps my lower back pain. I wish someone would invent sticky pads like a certain OTC patch that we could add our eo’s to for pain. I read somewhere there was a hospital using the pain patches with oils instead of chemicals with good results but can’t remember where I read it. LOL Think about it and maybe you can come up with something.

We have lots of Canadian customers! Unfortunately, we can’t offer free international shipping but that’s the only difference – otherwise you can order directly from the website with ease :)

Thank you so much I love your blog, your recipes and all that you share with us :). I’ve been trying to figure out where to get oils from in Canada but I trust you! Can you tell me if you have many Canadian customers and how it all works? Thank you!

Generally, I recommend 23 -25 drops of a blend per 2 oz, double that for 4 oz. However, you may want to increase that amount as this blend is more successful on the strong side. When it comes to this blend, you may need to experiment a little with a salve depending on your preferences and needs.

I apologize if I’ve left you confused. What I meant by that statement is that the blend is strong at this dilution but it’s helped many at this strength and I’m not going to back down or defend myself to those that may say it’s unreasonably potent. By sharing the recipe anyone can now make their own adjustments to dilution for their own preferences, this is one of the reasons why I’m an advocate of sharing my recipe blends!

I’m a little confused by your statement, “I would like to mention before I wrap this up that I believe it’s important to dilute this blend – it’s very potent and I’m not going to defend myself on this.” Do you mean to dilute it even though there’s already a carrier oil? Do we dilute it with more rosehip seed oil?

If I wanted to make this into a salve, would it still be the same amount of oils? Per 2oz or 4oz jar?
Thank you.

Absolutely. Take care to read about the precautions of Birch before using.

Would this combo of oils work as a muscle pain relief cream?

Thank you for replying. I made some for a friend who has frequent migraines and I wanted to make sure we were using it correctly. She loves it. Thank you so much for the recipe and the wealth of information you share here. I just ordered the Jeddy’s blend to try and I wondered if you would consider doing an oil of the month and/or salve of the month club. I hope so!

Debora, it’s such a personal choice! Inhaling EOs can be very effective but doing it properly can make a big difference. I posted an article on FB a few days ago about how inhaling from palms is much more effective and interactive than simply inhaling from a bottle or inhaler.

Hello.

I just purchased your headache buster kit but cannot find the recipe for the 5 ml bottle that’s included in the kit. Can you please tell me how much rosehip you add to the 5ml bottle and how many drops you add to that? Can’t wait to try this, thank you!

You won’t smell the Lavender in the blend if that’s what you’re worried about :)

Hello there! I’m excited about this blend possibly helping my migraines. I am wondering if there is an essential oil to take place of lavender. For some reason most of us in my family really do not care for the scent and it is not calming to us! Thank you,
Jaime

No Barbara, I’m not recommending that EOs be added to a lung inhaler – but you can get great results by inhaling several drops of essential oil from the palm of your hand, a hanky or of course diffuse into the air. With regard to my salves, I’ve never added fractionated coconut oil but updated the recipe to include organic rosehip seed oil for it’s healing benefits and the way it silkens my base salve recipe.

I must have missed the original posts where you explain what you mean by “inhalers”. I have asthma and use an inhaler, but surely you don’t mean to add EOs to my lung inhaler… could you please explain what you mean by making inhalers for the use of my many EO blends. Also, have you changed over ALL your recipes from FCO to rosehip seed oil? I’m getting ready to make a bunch of salves and need to know before I start acting like a mad scientist – ha! Thanks for your reply!

If I’m using the Headache Buster Blend kit, what ratio EOB to rose would you suggest?

You can get nasal inhalers that are kind of like the OTC kind you can buy to open up your nasal passages and pass the limbic center of your brain (our brains are very sensitive to smell…think memories of Christmas cookies, etc.) They have a wick in them that you remove and put your oils on them, then use as you would the OTC kind. I haven’t used them personally, but I know people who have used them with great success. (These would be more for upper respiratory support and working with emotions, being as how the smells are associated with that limbic center. Research that, you will be amazed.)

Where can I get chamomile EO in the UK, Doterra UK don’t have it. I also don’t have any birch, I could buy some but will peppermint substitute?

Hi Cynthia, thank you for your question. I prefer a 50/50 blend of the blend + carrier oil however, you may want to start out with a weaker dilution – and work out what strength works best for you.

Marva, I like a 50/50 blend – I would start there and adjust accordingly to your preferences :)
