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.
While it may not look a lot like Christmas around here yet, it’s sure beginning to smell like it! My daughter Britta and I decided to do a little experimenting yesterday to come up with a blend of essential oils for diffusing that would make the house smell “merry and bright!” I’ve been diffusing it non-stop ever since. It has definitely given me a much needed mental boost. My grinch-like mood has been greatly improved….much to the delight of my family. :-)
Measure your salt and pour into a large glass bowl. Add your olive oil and mix well with a metal spoon. Add your essential oils and continue to stir your mixture. Slowly scoop into your glass pot. Close tightly with white lid and label. Store in a cool, dark place. Scoop out a silver dollar size of scrub and apply to body. Repeat weekly. This is one of the most pampering DIY essential oil recipes 🙂

plus you can color and scent them any way you want– Color a batch sea blue and use a lavender, lime, and spearmint essential oils for a calming and uplifting aroma that smells like a sea breeze. Or color them yellow with a mix of rosemary and lemon essential oils for an energizing scent that makes you looks forward to your morning shower. Or color them pink and use grapefruit, juniper berry, cypress, and rosemary essential oils to help improve cellulite.

I like the product itself. It does a fantastic job of really filling a space with it's scent, and for quite a length of time. Unfortunately I know this mainly because the Peppermint Oil arrived opened. More than 70% of the contents had been spilled out during the shipping process, resulting in the loss of the product, and all of the other products smelling of peppermint for more than two weeks. Luckily nothing else was ruined.

I was afraid that the face of the bracelet would be too big on my wrist. It's actually perfect sizing. Since I really have a tiny wrist, the band is still a tad big on me. I even used it up to the last slot of the bracelet and the end sticks up and looks weird to me. Good timing since I'm in the middle of my migraine and I already started to put the oils in. Love that it's a twistable face cap since my hands and arms are constantly moving I didn't want the the piece to fall out without my knowledge.
