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.
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.
**Directions: In one bowl, mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl with a whisk until very well combined.  In a separate bowl, mix together the wet ingredients. Slowly combine wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Note: if the mixture is foaming, you are adding too fast.  Keep whisking together until very well combined.  Using silicone baking molds, firmly pack mixture in each mold. Let air dry for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight.  Pop out and keep in an airtight container.

This is a classic spray that makes your laundry smell uh-mazing and helps to support well-being. Once your clothes come out of dryer or cloth’s line, spray your sheets liberally. Because Lavender essential oil is gentle, this is safe to use on your children’s sheets before bedtime. You could also use this as a soothing body spray or perfume (replace the distilled water with a light carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil.)

The heart itself is simply gorgeous, unique, and functional. It has some variation in the color that makes it look slightly aged- lots of character and very intricate. The SIX included lava beads are great for putting on different oils, and they are super easy to change out. The cross adds some character to a an already classy piece. If you are looking for a good locket necklace to add essential oils to, this is a great choice. Even better- great customer service. The hook on my necklace broke after the return period, and the nice folks at Maromalife were happy to send out a replacement.
