How to Make a Headache Relief Pot


Headache relief pots are small containers with a natural formula in them that relieves headaches. The headache relief ointment in these pots is a topical ointment that begins to relieve headaches on contact. They are convenient and easily carried in a pocket or purse. Headache relief pots are inexpensive and easy to make.


Difficulty: Easy

Things You'll Need

  • 2 oz. beeswax
  • 3 oz. shea butter
  • Double boiler pot
  • Large mixing spoon
  • 4 oz. olive oil
  • Lavender essential oil
  • Mini flowerpots or lip balm containers



Step One

Melt the shea butter and beeswax in a double boiler over high heat on the stove. Stir occasionally until the mix is melted completely. If you don't have any shea butter, use 1 oz. beeswax and 2 oz. of massage oil or olive oil instead.

Step Two

Add the olive oil to the wax mix. Completely combine the oil into the wax mixture. Extra virgin olive oil works the best with this formula, but other varieties of olive oil will also work.

Step Three

Stir in 10 to 15 drops of the lavender essential oil. Blend the lavender into the mix. Remove the mix from the heat.

Step Four

Pour the mix into the small pots or lip balm containers. This wax recipe makes 9 oz. headache relief ointment.

Step Five

Massage the ointment on the temples once the mix congeals. For fast relief from headache pain, take long, deep breaths while messaging the temples of your forehead.

Tips & Warnings

  • The balm in the headache relief pots remains effective for up to 2 years if stored in a cool, dry area.
