Each of us have suffered headaches from time to time and some people experience head pain more than others.  So, what do you do when you get a headache?  Recently, I read an article from NDTV Food providing us with several suggested remedies and of course one is using Peppermint!  (Read HERE)

They state, “With its refreshing scent, peppermint helps open up clogged blood vessels which cause headache”. “It contains menthol which helps regulate blood flow in the body”.  They suggest to “Quietly breathe in the aroma in a cool, dark room”. “You can also mix 3 drops of peppermint oil in one tablespoon of almond oil, or just add a little water and massage the temples or the back of your neck with it”. (Purchase Peppermint Jim’s Peppermint Oil HERE) “Alternatively, can apply crushed peppermint leaves on your forehead”. “Make an herbal tea by adding 1 teaspoon of dried peppermint to a cup of boiling water”. “Cover and let it steep for 10 minutes”. “Strain and add some honey to sweeten it”. “Sip the tea slowly”.
