The above image has some ideas on how to address occasional head tension with essential oils. An essential oil tension blend supports the tense muscles in your body so it may be a good choice for you. I know many others who love peppermint essential oil for it’s soothing properties. Lavender essential oil is very calming so that’s what one of my friends swears by for head and neck tension. I’ve heard of many others who have had good luck with Frankincense essential oil on the roof of their mouth. You may also want to consider rosemary essential oil, wintergreen essential oil, marjoram essential oil and basil essential oil because each person’s body is different and if one oil doesn’t work for you, try another because you will eventually find the perfect one for you.
