Headaches can ruin the best of plans, even those that you plan for days or even months. Have you ever planned a Holiday party, birthday party, family day at a park or even your child’s first sports game and then a headache crept up on you and ruined it? I have been there, on more than one occasion. For a majority of my life, I’ve suffered with headaches. Thankfully, I’ve found a product that helps me make it to many of my planned activities. I am excited to share that you can trust Excedrin® for fast headache relief.
Both my husband and I work outside of the home. When we are home on the weekends, we take advantage of that time to spend as a family. One of our favorite things to do as a family is to go the park!
We can spend all day there and have a nice picnic while we play together! Our 2 year old loves to climb, swing and go down the slide. Our dogs love to play fetch and my husband loves to fly his drone.
I am usually going down the slide with Liam or taking pictures.
This can easily be ruined by a headache and it has many times before. Thanks to Excedrin® products, though, our family park days can go on and we can spend the time together again!
Excedrin products deliver fast relief for different types of headaches. I personally keep Excedrin® Extra Strength and Excedrin® Tension Headache on hand at all times. I keep these products in a ‘headache emergency kit’ which is complete with some of my tried and true headache relief methods.
Headache Emergency Kit
To assemble a headache emergency kit, you just need a few items:
- Small Bag or Zip Around Pouch
- Instant Ice Pack
- Excedrin® Extra Strength
- Excedrin® Tension Headache
- Headache Relief Roll On (recipe below)
In this kit, I always keep Excedrin® Extra Strength and Excedrin® Tension Headache as well as a Headache Essential Oil Roll On, and an Instant Ice Pack. I keep these in my diaper bag, or purse so that I can have it wherever I go.
DIY Headache Relief Roll On
- Roller Ball Bottle
- Carrier Oil of your Choice
- Copaiba Essential Oil
- Peppermint Essential Oil
- Panaway Essential Oil
- Lavender Essential Oil
- Add carrier oil to roller ball bottle. I used coconut oil.
- Add 1-2 drop of each essential oil to bottle.
- Add roller ball top.
- Screw on bottle top.
- Shake gently.
Now that you have all of the materials for your kit, place them in your small zip around bag and you’re set to go. I toss this emergency kit in my purse or diaper bag so I have it on hand when needed.
When I have a headache, I immediately take the Excedrin® product that I feel is best (according to the indications and dosage directions), roll on the headache relief on my temples and back of my neck, and then use the instant ice pack on the side of my head that hurts the most. When I do that, my headache usually starts to let up in 15-30 minutes. This emergency kit is ready for me and is easily refillable, too!
Depending on the type of headache, I take either Excedrin® Extra Strength or Excedrin® Tension Headache. Excedrin® Extra Strength offers fast headache relief that starts (for some) in just 15 minutes! This formula is usually my go to for those pesky headaches that need some fast relief. If I feel a headache that is all over the back of my head and neck, it is usually a tension headache. In that instance, I take Excedrin® Tension Headache which offers aspirin-free headache relief. Headaches certainly come in all shapes and sizes and all headache relief products should be used as directed.
You can find Excedrin® in your local Walmart store in the pain relief aisle. There are a variety of bottle sizes for all of your headache needs.
In what instance would you want to have Excedrin® on hand?
