3 Natural Ways To Relieve A Headache

When you have a headache, you want the pain to be over as soon as possible. Most people use over the counter meds which take time to kick in and the pain will linger a little longer.

Instead try any of these three natural cures that work in minutes.

If you think that your headache is caused by stress, try the pencil method. When you're stressed out, you automatically tense your jaw muscle which strains the muscle that runs from your jaw to your ear resulting to a headache. To relieve that, place a pencil between your mouth without biting down. That forces the jaw muscles to relax which eases the headache.

If you have a sinus headache, try massaging peppermint oil on a few key points. Peppermint is so concentrated so you will likely want to dilute it with any unscented oil like baby oil. Rub the less concentrated mixture on your temples in a small circular motions and then work inwards along your brow bone to your sinuses. The menthol in the peppermint oil will relieve the headache.

Finally, there is an acupressure play on your hand that is believed to relieve headaches. Find the place where the bone of your finger meets the bone of your thumb. Press firmly and rotate in small circles very slowly. Up three rotations for a full minute. Do that for three minutes and your headache should subside.
