A mixture of 10% peppermint-oil in ordinary alcohol. Simply rub the solution into the forehead and temples you should feel relief within 15 minutes.
For quick comfort, gently rub one drop of oil on the place where it hurts the most. The essence of the herb is very concentrated, so even though it seems like a small amount, one drop should be enough.
(3) An herbal foot bath can sooth your headache.
Mix one teaspoon of powder mustard or ginger with very warm water in a plastic basin big enough for both feet. Place your feet into the water.
Drape a thick towel across the top to hold in the heat. Lean back in a comfortable chair, close your eyes, breathe deeply, and relax for about 15 minutes.
By the time the water has cooled down, your headache may be completely forgotten.
(2) Ever thought of ice? Place an ice pack under the back of your neck and a hot-water bottle on top of your feet.
Cooling the blood flow through your neck while warming your feet can sometimes halt the pain-causing dilation that’s occurring in your head.
Number (1) recommended remedy is a self-help massage. Begin your massage with the areas above and around your ears. Place your hands on either side of your head; using the pads of your fingers, press down gently and move the skin back and forth about 1 inch.
Move your scalp rather than sliding your fingers across the skin. Place the pads of your fingers on your temples. Press down gently and move your fingers in small circles.
Repeat this technique on the back of your neck. Pay particular attention to the area at the base of the skull. Continue to massage your scalp in this way until you’ve covered your entire head.
