Headache is a common problem for everybody. It can happen anytime and at anywhere. The causes also vary from time to time but most of it is because of the accumulation of physical or emotional stress.
Since we don’t know when we will have a headache it is best if we prepare some remedies for it in our bag or pocket all the time. You surely don’t need a headache when you’re in the middle of a business meeting or a business presentation, right?
Natural remedies in the form of herbs are preferable if you care about your health in the long run. Herbs for headache are actually pretty effective and safe for your body.
Ginger is in fact a super herb and has a lot of benefits. One of its benefits is curing headache. Ginger tea is efficient to carry everywhere and you can buy it in most herbal stores. It works as headache remedy by inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis and it is also effective for nausea and migraine.
Chamomile is probably the second choice after Ginger tea. Both herbs are famous for their benefits of curing many diseases. Brew a cup of chamomile tea and drink it while it is still warm will immediately lessen your headache. If you don’t like the chamomile taste you can add a couple drop of honey into the tea.
If you had your headache when you’re at home you can do head rubs or footbaths to get rid your headache. You can use rosemary or thyme oil for head rubs. Just dab a drop of it in your forehead and let it do the work while sitting in a chair for a several minutes. Both oils were reported to contain carvacrol that can act as headache remedy.
If you prefer footbaths to get rid your headache you can use lavender or peppermint oil. Add a few drop of it into the hot water and then put your feet in the water. You will feel more relax thanks to oil aroma and your headache will lessen thanks to the hot water that draws more blood into your foot and thus easing the blood vessels pressure in your head.
