Homemade Headache Balm

This homemade headache balm is a simple, all natural remedy for headaches and migraines and is very effective in the treatment of all types of headaches, including sinus related, especially when used with our congestion relief balm.


15g of Organic Beeswax
60g of Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
35 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil
25 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
Double Boiler
Glass jar for storage


Lavender is known for it’s soothing aroma and helps to relieve tension, while peppermint is cool and calming and the combination are a very effective headache remedy.

Start by gently melting the beeswax in the double boiler. Once all the wax has melted, add the coconut oil a little at a time, stirring in until the mix has all returned to a liquid. Remove from the heat, add 35 drops of organic peppermint essential oil and 25 drops of organic lavender essential oil.

This recipe will result in a dilution rate of around 3.5% essential oil to coconut oil and is only suitable for adults and children aged 15+, as always make sure you do a patch test to ensure there are no allergies or side effects from any of the oils in any balm. For younger children refer to my dilution table and dilution guidelines for children and adjust accordingly to suit the age of the child that this balm will be intended for.

Once the essential oils are added, stir well and transfer into a glass jar for storage and allow to set at room temperature. Store in a cool dark place to preserve the shelf life of this balm.
