Here’s Stevi’s suggestions for headaches:
Natural Cures for a Headache
Footbath- try immersing your feet in a bucket of water-as hot as you can stand it for 15 minutes. At the same time, wring out a cloth in ice water and place the cold compress on your forehead, temples, back of neck or where ever the pain is concentrated. Hot water dilates blood vessels and increase blood flow to the feet, while the cold compress constricts blood vessels in the head, reducing the volume of blood flow and thereby reducing pain.
Lavender Essential Oil-Massage temples with a couple of drops of lavender essential oil
Loosen Mucus- Spicy foods increases the flow of blood and loosens the secretions of mucus in the sinuses. This has the effect of relieving the congestion that causes sinus headaches.
