This is why we suggest some natural ways to end this pain at home. Here are some home remedies that might want to try out the next time you have a headache.
1. Ginger is your go-to solution
Ginger is certainly the all-rounder you need. It is known as an instant reliever for headaches. It reduces inflammation of the blood vessels in the head, further easing the pain. Moreover, it stimulates digestion, quelling the nausea that occurs during conditions like migraine. All you need to do is mix ginger juice and lemon juice together and drink up along with lukewarm water. You can also apply ginger paste and water on your forehead for a few minutes for instant relief.
2. Don't miss cinnamon
Cinnamon is that miracle spice that can effectively treat headaches. All you need to do is grind some cinnamon sticks into a powder and add some water to make a thick paste. Apply it on your forehead and temples and lie down for about 30 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water.
3. Holy basil is what you may need
A strong scented herb, basil is used for natural headache treatment. Tulsi oil acts as a relaxant and helps get rid of headaches caused by tension and tight muscles.
4. Make time for thyme
Dab a drop of thyme or rosemary essential oil on each temple and on your forehead. Rub gently into the skin and sit in a peaceful place for several minutes to let this home remedy work.
