The most used pain killer in our home is a blend we call pain oil and keep in a small roller bottle at the bedside. Pain oil can be used for headaches rubbed on the temples and back of the neck. It is almost star trek fast in relief and often referred to as “magical” especially to a first time user. Add a couple drops of eucalyptus oil for the best sunburn relief ever. It works on any and all kinds of pain and is a simple 3 oil blend of lavender, peppermint and basil. I am now using Mountain Rose Herbs as my source for essential Oils. (CAUTION if you are pregnant leave out the basil it can cause premature labor. Peppermint is debatable, if you prefer extra caution try spearmint or use half as much peppermint. Lavender oil is safe) Mix 20 drops of each essential oil and a dropper full of vodka or perfumers alcohol with about 1 ounce of a carrier oil, I like olive oil.
Shake well before use. We have given this for gifts to family and friends and they always ask refills…kinda make me feel like a pusher, I give them the first one free and they always come back for more 😉
