Homemade Headache Helper


As a mom, I just can’t afford to get headaches. However, I happen to be cursed with them. Rather than popping pills every 5 seconds, I like to use a little homemade rub made with beeswax, extra virgin olive oil and peppermint oil. Peppermint oil is often used for it’s refreshing qualities in edible hygiene products, although it is also used to help with headaches and nausea.

Here’s what you will need:

2 tablespoons shredded beeswax

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon peppermint oil

I melted the beeswax in the microwave for about 60 seconds until it was pure liquid. Be careful it will be HOT. Then I dumped in the extract and evoo and noticed it started to solidify right away so I popped it in for another 30 seconds, mixed with a toothpick and poured it into the little pots. To use, rub a bit of the mixture onto the temples or the back of the heck, or wherever you have pain. I would stay away from coconut oil in this mixture if you plan on using it on your face as coconut oil is a known comedogenic.
