Headaches - Natural Herbal Remedies
A good natural treatment for headaches is the bark of a willow tree. You can grow a willow tree with a cutting from a mature tree. One of the reasons that this is effective is because it contains salicin, which is comparable to what you’ll find contained in aspirin. What’s your biggest issue?
It’s also a good treatment for anything that causes you to feel pain since it works like an aspirin does.
One drawback is that people who experience a reaction to aspirin could also potentially have a reaction to willow bark.
It should not be used by nursing mothers or given to ill children due to the potential same side effects that aspirin can cause.
Lavender is a flowering plant that looks beautiful in a garden. But it’s also a natural treatment for headaches - even if those headaches are migraines.
It’s the oil from the plant that gives a person relief from the pain.
It can be applied directly to the skin or inhaled by boiling the plant and inhaling the oils as they’re released.
Lavender is safe to use on the skin without having to dilute it.
Another plant that you can grow to treat headaches is peppermint.
This plant is used by crushing the leaves and applying the mixture to the area of the body where you feel the pain. The oils are absorbed through the skin.
If you’ve ever had to deal with cluster headaches, you know how bad these can be to deal with.
These headaches, which show up and then come back repeatedly over the course of several weeks can be difficult to treat with modern medicine because as soon as you stop the treatment, you can end up with rebound headaches.
One of the best natural remedies that you can plant indoors or outdoors to help with these types of headaches is cayenne pepper.
This plant contains capsaicin, which is used to relieve pain. It can be applied directly to the skin.
However, you should be extremely careful to keep any of the plant from touching your face.
If the plant comes in contact with your eyes, it can cause unpleasant burning.
A side effect of this plant when applied topically is a burning sensation that does go away after a few minutes.
If you’re prone to skin allergies, this may not be the right remedy for you to use.
Thyme, when made into a tea can also be used to relieve the pain associated with headaches.
Bay leaves are helpful in treating headaches as well.
As a reminder, it is essential to keep in mind that various natural health guide or home remedies work in a different way for different individuals.
