Headaches stink. Period. I have yet to meet someone who jumps for joy when their head starts pounding.
I’m not prone to headaches but when I get one, I feel like the world is coming to an end. Basically I am a big ol’ baby about it.
As a lover of all things natural health related, I prefer not to dull the pain with over-the-counter remedies. However, until recently, I hadn’t found a natural remedy that did the trick.
It took quite a bit of experimenting but I finally created an herbal tincture that offered me some pretty amazing headache relief. And so today, I pass my recipe along to you! I won’t make any promises but give it and try and let me know how it works.

Where can you find the herbs to make this herbal headache tincture?
I get most of my herbs from my affiliate partner Amazon. I love the Frontier brand and Starwest Botanical brand available from Amazon.

Hi Shane! I am so sorry to hear this. My dear friend had an aneurysm and over time, the migraines resolved. I sure hope this is the case for you. Migraines typically require something pretty strong. I have heard that this natural product works rather well: http://amzn.to/1pOGpUj. Also, have you tried acupuncture? That can really do wonders at prevention. I sure do wish you luck and if I can think of other suggestions I will come back here and comment.
I’m curious about this and may have to try this combo. I already love using peppermint essential oil for headaches, but it doesn’t always take care of it 100% on it’s own. When you say use 8-10 drops, are you using this topically or internally? Thanks!
Hi Lisa! Huh – I should clarify that shouldn’t I? Thanks for asking. That would be internally.
No problem, thanks! 🙂
