If you suffer from headaches you’ll know how uncomfortable they can get. Weather there is an underlying cause or just built up tension, headaches can play havoc on your day.
One of the perks about these particular bath bombs is that the essential oils not only promote relaxation but are a natural headache remedy as well!
Lavender essential oil is one of my most favorite go-to oils for calming, relaxing and fixing. It’s a healing oil made to help soothe the body through both topical application and inhalation.
Peppermint on the other hand is a stimulating oil meant to perk you up, create clearer thoughts and boost energy. But it’s also been used for pain relief, sore muscles and more specifically- as a natural headache remedy. In fact, many headache balms use peppermint essential oil to rub on the temples to help provide relief.
These two oils both keep the bombs simple but effective which is perfect for any diy project.
Lastly, the preferred base of my bath bombs is epsom salts. These salts have been shown to help detox the body and ease sore muscles- which makes them a great additive into your bath bombs!
One quick thing to not though is that I like to use a tiny bit of oil in my bombs. This makes my skin feel nice and silky when getting out of the bath (so much so that I don’t even need to add my all time favorite lotion!). But it also means that the bath is a little bit slippery so be careful!

How To Make The Natural Headache Remedy Bath Bombs
In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients and mix well. Make sure there are no clumps.
In a small glass bowl, combine the almond oil, essential oils and witch hazel. Whisk.
Pour the liquid mixture into the large bowl, it will fizz once the liquid touches it.
Begin mixing using a fork (or your hands) until everything looks combined and somewhat moist.
Prep your silicone molds and use a spoon to fill the molds halfway. Using a silicone spatula, press the mixture into the molds firmly. Spray each mold with a small bit of water (one spray) and press down again to make sure they’re firm.
Using too much water will cause the bath bombs to lose their fizz. If you don’t press down firmly, the bombs will not hold together.
Divide the rest of the mixture into the molds and again press down firmly. Spray the top with water and press down again.
Makes 9 cupcake style bombs.
Note: from the mica powder and the almond oil these bath bombs will leave your bath a bit slippery- so take caution when getting out!
Tip: use anywhere from 1/8-1/2 teaspoon of mica powder keeping in mind that the more you use the more saturated the water will be with color. Mica powder does leave a ring in the tub." (source: https://fitasamamabear.com/natural-headache-remedy-bath-bombs/)
