Handful Of Recipes: Headache Balm

Headache Balm Recipe

In our lives we experience a lot of stress and tension. Sometimes we need an extra boost to help us get through those uncomfortable feelings. Rosemary is known as the “herb of remembrance” because it stimulates cognitive function. Essential oils such as eucalyptus, lavender, and peppermint help to relax your mind and help release some of the tension.

Here is a topical balm I created for those tense moments in life. It can be applied to your temples by lightly massaging them.

What you need!

  • Rosemary infused olive oil(I use organic unrefined Bragg’s olive oil for the best results): 1 cup
  • Beeswax: 2 tbsp
  • Ginger root: 1 tbsp
  • Rosemary: a sprinkle
  • Eucalyptus essential oil: 30 drops
  • Lavender essential oil: 30 drops
  • Peppermint essential oil: 10 drops
  • 2 different sized pots
  • Grater

Let’s get to it!

  1. Fill a big pot up with water and bring it to a light boil
  2. Insert a smaller pot inside the larger pot filled with water to create a double boiler
  3. Pour in the herbal infused olive oil and let it get warm, but do not bring it to a boil
  4. Grate in the beeswax and let it dissolve
  5. Grate the ginger root
  6. Add in your essential oils
    1. You can add these according to your own liking. I added in over 30 drops of each because I like the strong aroma
  7. Let the mixture sit for a short period of time and turn off the flame. Do a consistency test by pouring a small amount into a shot glass and sticking it in the freezer. Wait a few minutes to see if the consistency is right, if it is too loose add more beeswax
  8. When the texture is right for you, pour the rest of the mixture into a glass jar
  9. Sprinkle some rosemary on top of the balm for extra kick
  10. Let the jar sit in the fridge for a couple of hours after letting it cool for about 10 minutes.

Take it out when the mixture is solid. Apply it to your temples or your third eye when you are experiencing tension. It is also good for an extra boost if you need to focus or concentrate.

Oh the joys of pickeling with a friend or loved one! Sometimes in life you need to get yourself in a pickel. It’s a fun way to bond and it’s really not that difficult to do. It’s quite simple:

  1. Run around and pick out all of your favorite pickeling supplies
  2. Sterilize your jars with boiling water (be sure to let them dry of excess water)
  3. Spice up that vinegar!
  4. Add in your veggies
  5. Let em sit and wait it out!

It of course varies depending on what you’re pickeling. Today we made pickled Asian veggies that added some color, happiness and spice into our life!

Scared Tea Time 

Everyday I look forward to drinking a nice cup of tea! Sipping on any tea of your choosing can be grounding, centering and enjoyable. You can share your tea time with good friends and family or just enjoy the comfort of being by yourself. I love to mix and blend my own teas out of fresh herbs, roots or flowers. On of my absolute favorites is ginger root tea. Not only is it tasty, but it is healthy and natural. Ginger is great for digestion, headaches and chewing on the root itself can be good for tooth pain! Turmeric root is also a part of the tea and it is known to reduce inflammation and prevent diseases. It is synergistically combined with black pepper so your body can absorb it better.
