Body & Soul: Head Calming Oil


| October/November 2011

 To treat a headache, massage a drop or two of scented oil into your temples or at the base of your neck. Chamomile is a great general calmative.

• 4 drops essential oil (try lavender, peppermint, rosemary or chamomile)
• 1/4 cup grapeseed or almond oil

1. Mix together essential oil and vegetable oil.

2. Pour into a clean container.



3. To use: Massage 1 to 2 drops into your temples and at the base of your neck. Close your eyes, breathe deeply and relax.
