3 herbs for natural headache remedies
Browse main article categories
I love the concept of using food and herbs as medicine. Mother Nature can provide us with an effective and safe medicine chest and there is so much you can grow at home.
If you suffer from headaches or migraines, why not grow some herbs and use their powers to provide you with a safe, effective and natural headache remedy?
Feverfew is excellent for migraines, thanks to its bitter, liver-stimulating properties. If you’re brave (or desperate) then go ahead and chew a leaf, but if not, eat a leaf with a meal to disguise the taste. It’s worth the effort as feverfew can provide rapid relief for migraines.
Put a small sprig of rosemary into a jug and pour on 1/2 litre of boiling water. Cover and leave to infuse for ten minutes. Strain and sip the rosemary tea. Rosemary tea is effective for headaches bought on my stress and tension, so try to relax while you drink and let go of any tension.
Put a handful of fresh lavender – flowers, leaves and stalks into a bowl of warm water. Cover your head with a towel and inhale the vapours for ten minutes while you relax. Another way to use lavender for frequent headaches is to make a lavender pillow and try and sleep with it under your own pillow every night.
