For more persistent headaches, try rolling a bit of the peppermint oil into your temples with your oil roller. A bit on your chest as well. Those two places will surround your senses with refreshing peppermint, and hopefully, before long, your headache disappears.
If you work on your feet all day, they are likely tired and sore at the end of the day. Try a few drops of peppermint oil and a 1/4 cup of Epsom salts in a warm tub of water for a soothing foot soak.
