The Best Natural Tension Headache Cure
I rarely suffer from headaches which I put down to drinking copious amounts of water every day. Apparently 90% of headaches are caused by dehydration. If I did ever feel one coming a pint of water would usually do the trick. Not yesterday. My head really hurt at the sides and in the middle and it felt tight. I was pretty sure this was a tension headache from lack of sleep (I work late and rise early) and slight work stress. Ouch. Headaches are not fun. Moving around was seemingly making it worse but I was at work last night and my job is rather active. I’m not a big fan of taking pills so unless I am in excruciating pain I would rather try something a more natural remedy. Tiger Balm was exactly what I needed and off I popped to purchase some.
Ooh this stuff is just totally amazing. Using my fingertips I rubbed a generous scoop onto each of my temples. Even this motion started to relax my head. After around thirty seconds my temples started cooling from the menthol. I find the minty menthol smell very soothing and this in itself started to cool my headache and the pain began to ease. I applied a second lot after one hour and then my headache was forgotten about after this.
I would definitely recommend reaching for some Tiger Balm next time you have a tension headache. The jar is around £4-£5 and it lasts a few years. For me this stuff really is a miracle cure for any overtired/stress/emotionally caused headaches. It eases the pain whilst relaxing and soothing the head and mind. A real bargain that actually works and is totally natural too!
