Just off-hand, though, peppermint, lavender, and frankincense are often recommended for headaches. Other oils that can help with congestion are rosemary and eucalyptus, but these should not be used with children under the age of 5 nor with pregnant mamas. The migraine recipe noted below likely would help with a sinus headache but some people might find the addition of rosemary or eucalyptus might help relieve some of the congestion faster.


No time for baths, but love the aromatherapy benefits of bath bombs? Try shower melts!  They’re a great way to add aromatherapy to your shower!  Shower steamers are really very easy to make and only take a few ingredients.  The basic recipe is 1 cup baking soda , 1/3 cup distilled water, and 25 drops essential oil.  Yep, the recipe is very simple.  I think the really fun part is choosing which fun shape you want to make and which essential oil blends to use.  Find instructions here
So this year, I’m inspired to DIY much of my holiday gift-giving using one of my favorite things – essential oils! Not just any essential oils though – 100% pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils. I’ve been slightly obsessed with essential oils this year (and reusing essential oil bottles), so naturally, compiling my list of DIY holiday gift inspiration included lots of oily goodness.

Regarding sore joints, my husband is a runner, and I have used various concoctions of lavender, lemon, and peppermint for his feet, especially when he was trail running long distances. We would put the oils in an espsom salt foot bath and he would find relief. As a rub, I like adding clove and helichrysum to a mix of lavender and/or peppermint. (Sorry I don’t have any specific recipes off-hand but found or altered many of mine from “The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy” book by Valerie Ann Worwood.) I hope this information helps and doesn’t further confuse.
This is a nice looking unit that blends with any decor. We needed something to add humidity to our dry Colorado air and to diffuse essential oils that aid in sleeping. After a week of use, I would say...so far, so good! Our sinuses feel less dry and sleep has been more restful, even though my husband has sleep apnea and often struggles with his CPAP.
