Keep in mind that sometimes home remedies may be sufficient for a mild headache.
1. Hot bath
Taking a bath is always a good choice to relieve stress. Because headaches can be caused by excessive stress, this may be enough to get rid of the pain.
In addition, if you use natural oils, ie aromatherapy, these baths can be effective in relieving headaches and other problems.
Fill the tub with warm water and add aromatic salts. Immerse yourself in it and rest for 30 minutes.
2. Chamomile infusion
This infusion has a calming and anti-inflammatory effect.
Chamomile tea is an effective remedy for almost everything. It is famous for its properties that relieve stomach pain, and it is very effective for relieving headaches.
- 30 g of chamomile
- 500 ml of water
- sugar (to taste)
Boil water, add the chamomile and leave for a few minutes.
Strain and pour into a cup, add sugar to taste.
3. Apple cider vinegar
Among the many benefits of apple cider vinegar, it also can help soothe tension, which is good for relieving headaches.
Although this remedy can be a little unpleasant, it can have an immediate effect. Consuming small portions of apple cider vinegar can quickly relieve your headache.
- 200 ml of water
- 10 ml of apple cider vinegar
Dissolve a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in at least three glasses of water. Drink it throughout the day.
Make sure the water is at room temperature, as too much cold water can increase the tension in your head.
4. Head massage
Head massage allows you to relieve muscle tension and soothe the stimulation of blood vessels.
Massage to relieve tension is one of the most effective alternatives to get rid of headaches. Pressing on certain points on the skull can reduce discomfort, especially if it massage is with lavender oil.
