Essential Oil Diffuser Blend for Headaches
Essential oils can be effective to relieve headaches. They have been used for decades as a more natural alternative for over-the-counter medications. While OTC medications help reduce pains, the effectiveness of essential oils is arguably unmatched. Before you use essential oils, it is good to know that there are different types of headaches and they are triggered by a range of factors.

Types of Headaches
How to get rid of headaches is not a question with a single answer. Some essential oils are more effective for specific headaches than others. Let’s look at some common types of headaches:

How to Use Essential Oils to Relieve Headaches
One of the best ways to use essential oils or blends to relieve headaches is with diffusers. Not only a relaxing ritual and gratifying way to scent your home, but the use of Young Living essential oil diffusers can deliver aromatherapeutic benefits to the body and mind.
Our Dewdrop diffuser functions as a humidifier, atomizer, and aroma diffuser in one. Add four to five drops of your essential oil of choice to the water and inhale deeply. Allow the diffuser to deliver the therapeutic properties of the oils throughout your house.
Using the Dewdrop diffuser also removes the need to mix the essential oils with a carrier oil such as coconut oil, olive oil or sweet almond oil. Some essential oils such as peppermint or rosemary if applied to the skin directly, can cause reactions, such as severe irritation, redness or burning. So a carrier oil may be needed.
