Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

For all those who give pom-pom critters for birthdays, feel an urge to stick googly eyes on everything or just occasionally get a twitch to fold some origami, we bring you "Gettin' Crafty" where we feature a craft you can easily make with minimal supplies and limited finances. For all the headaches you have given your mom over the years, she deserves something to alleviate that tension. Here is a homemade headache remedy to give her for Mother's Day, to help her the next time you make a "poor choice". Supplies

  • Peppermint essential oil
  • Lavender essential oil
  • Almond oil
  • One once glass bottle with dropper


1. Put about 20 drops of the peppermint oil and 20 drops of lavender oil in the glass bottle.

2. Fill the rest of the bottle up with almond oil.

3. Personalize for your mom. Maybe a little note apologizing for past indiscretions. And one telling her how to, in the future, calm her frazzled nerves by rubbing a few drops on her temples, behind the ears and the back of the neck. Follow us on Twitter!

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
