In this post we'll go over 8 essential oil blends that will make the pain go away.

Ease Migraines

When it comes to treating migraines, peppermint oil is the most effective. It's also an excellent option for headaches and toothaches. Rosemary oil also works well as an anti-inflammatory agent, so it can be used in place of (or to compliment the use of) ibuprofen or aspirin.

Lavender helps alleviate tension, stress, and pain and has been shown to help with anxiety. Finally, frankincense helps reduce inflammation throughout the body, including the head, where many people experience migraine symptoms.

You will need:

  • 1 drop Peppermint

  • 2 drops Lavender

  • 2 drops Rosemary

  • 2 drops Frankincense


Place all ingredients into a glass dropper bottle or roller bottle and add 1 oz carrier oil (I recommend fractionated coconut oil). Apply 1 to 2 drops to temples, forehead and back of the neck as needed.

Soothe Body Aches and Pains

This blend is excellent for those who suffer from arthritis and muscle pain. It can be used topically to ease the discomfort of a sore back or muscles.

The ingredients in this blend are antispasmodic, analgesic and analgesic. They help relieve pain in different ways:

  • Marjoram is an antispasmodic oil that also has analgesic properties (pain relief). This means it helps relax muscles that may be causing you pain by reducing their muscle spasms, which makes them ache less.

  • Peppermint oil is an analgesic (pain reliever) that works on both the central nervous system (the part of your brain that receives messages from your body telling you when something hurts) and the peripheral nervous system (the nerves throughout your body). It reduces inflammation, which reduces pain caused by inflammation such as arthritis or muscle spasms.

  • Cajeput oil has similar properties to those listed above; however, its main purpose is to reduce fever due to colds or flu symptoms while still providing some relief from aches and pains associated with these illnesses.

You will need:

  • 1 drop Marjoram

  • 1 drop Peppermint

  • 1 drop Cajeput

  • 2 drops Helichrysum

  • 1 drop Eucalyptus

Use your blend for sore muscles, backaches and other body aches and pains.


Place all ingredients into a glass dropper bottle or roller bottle and add 1 oz carrier oil (I recommend fractionated coconut oil). Apply the oil directly to the affected area by massaging it gently into the skin using clockwise strokes until absorbed or diluted with an unscented lotion or body oil if desired.

Muscle Relief Blend

This blend is great for sore muscles, tightness or pain due to injury or overuse. You can also use it to help relieve headaches, nausea or digestive discomfort. It's always a good idea to dilute the essential oils with a carrier oil before applying topically. Still, you can also diffuse this blend in your home or office space to help clear the air of negative energy and promote feelings of peacefulness and relaxation.

You will need:

  • 1 drop peppermint

  • 3 drops ginger

  • 2 drops grapefruit


Place all ingredients into a glass dropper bottle or roller bottle and add 1 oz carrier oil (I recommend fractionated coconut oil). Shake well before each use. Apply 2-3 drops to the affected area 2-4 times daily as needed. You can also add 2-3 drops of this blend directly into your bath water for added benefits!

Respiratory Relief Blend

This blend helps treat respiratory problems such as colds and allergies by boosting immunity and reducing inflammation in the respiratory system. It also helps relieve coughs due to colds or other respiratory infections such as bronchitis and asthma attacks by loosening mucous.

You will need:

  • 3 drops eucalyptus

  • 6 drops lemon or grapefruit


This blend can be used in two ways:

  • Add 3 drops of the blend to a bowl of steaming hot water and use it as an inhaler to breathe in the steam.

  • Add 6 drops of the blend to 10 ml of carrier oil like jojoba oil, almond oil or coconut oil and apply this mixture topically on your chest and back if you have congestion in these areas.
