Head and neck tension; everyone has it from time to time. Whether they are caused by tension or stress or like I have, head tension caused by barometric pressure. There is nothing that ruins someone’s day more than pounding head and neck tension. It affects everything you do. I could rarely get the relief I needed and when I was directed towards essential oils, I must have been the biggest skeptic out there. I used to take piles of pills, without much result, failing to understand that many of the chemical compounds in those pills only made my headache worse.
Over time I began to build up resistance against any pain medication and they no longer had any effect. If you get a lot of these, and you’re desperate enough, you will try anything. When essential oils were offered to me as some potential relief for my head tension I jumped on the opportunity to try it out, but without much hope that it would have any effect.
Well, the first time I used this roller blend, I was in a baseball stadium, watching the Atlanta Braves play together with my husband and my daughter. Surely enough, sitting in the burning sun all afternoon started working its dark magic and I felt pounding head and neck tension coming on. I quickly grabbed this blend, applied it everywhere I was told to apply it in a little too much abundance (my bottle was 1/4 empty and my hair got greasy!) and after a few minutes I started to feel the effects.
Slowly but surely, the pressure disappeared and a few minutes later I started feeling much better and felt my energy level coming back. I realized I stared at my roller blend bottle in awe a little too long when I missed a spectacular triple play, but my amazement was more so with the instant relieving effect of the oils I just used then with the triple play (although, when I saw it in the replay, that was pretty awesome too).
Thinking that it may have been a coincidence or a fluke, I started applying this blend every time I felt pressure in my head coming up, which is my sign that a sledgehammer is waiting on the other side of the door about to make his way into my head. It has given me a tremendous amount of relief and now it has become a preventative for me. I apply it when I even feel the slightest tension coming on and often it prevents on setting head tension from becoming a full-blown brain tear down.
Are you ready to try this for yourself? Put 20 drops of Rosemary essential oil and 20 drops of Peppermint essential oil in a roller bottle and top it off with Fractionated Coconut Oil. Shake well before applying. Apply to the forehead and temples and in the neck under the hairlines, close your eyes for 5 minutes and let the oils do their job. When you open your eyes, you will feel major relief!
