For those suffering from:

  • Headaches and neck stiffness due to overuse of PCs or smartphones
  • Painful headaches from winter coldness, starting in the shoulders and neck muscles leading to a tightening from the back of the head
  • Headaches and atrophied body resulting from tension and stress

For the headache symptoms we call tension headaches, relief from pain can be achieved by dilating the muscles through warming the body. Today I’ll introduce you to a bath salt blending copaiba, marjoram, and lavender essential oils to help eliminate these headaches.

Mix these materials evenly.

The herb bath salts are easy to use! Put them in a net bag beforehand so that the herbs do not get caught in the pipes when the bath is drained.


Epsom salts  are effective in replenishing magnesium in the body, and relieving muscle tension.

For headaches, you should first warm your whole body from the neck and shoulders. It’s good to take a shallow bath and slowly “swallow” the pain-relieving substance by sweating.

After bathing, you can suppress any reoccurrence of the headache by refreshing yourself through drinking water and resting your body and mind.
