DIY Headache and Muscle Pain Soothing Roll-On

There are so many different over-the-counter pain relievers on the market.

Many of us have taken a Tylenol or an Advil at some point to deal with a headache or some other type of muscle pain. While no one can doubt the potency of these painkillers, a lot of them carry further risk to your health and can only be used sparingly.

This DIY pain soothing roll-on can be made in the comfort of your own home and used to ease headaches caused by tension, stress, or rolled onto muscles to soothe and ease pain.*
