Avoid another pill and try these natural cures for a headache the next time your head starts throbbing:
- Peppermint Oil
Combine three drops of peppermint oil with a tablespoon of water and rub the mixture along the hairline and under nose. The scent of peppermint is a natural brain stimulant and can alter blood flow. The pain should dissipate in about 20 minutes.
- Hot Water
Soak your feet in hot water until the water cools. The heat opens up blood vessels and relieves restrictions in blood flow for better circulation.
- Ginger Steam
Pour boiling water over a ginger tea bag (or a fresh piece of ginger) and inhale the steam until the tea is cool enough to drink. The steam and ginger reduce inflamed nasal passages and relieve tension headaches.
