What is your tried and true headache remedy?

I'm fighting a migraine right now, it started out in my sinuses and seems to be getting worse.  I can't take aspirin, but did just down some ibuprofen along with some orange juice.

Are there any natural remedies that work for you?

There is an essential oil by DoTerra called Deep Blue. My son had a headache on Sunday and I rubbed some on his head and he felt better within minutes.

I have. I use their oils to help boost my immune system and when I take them, I don't get sick all that often, but when I don't take them, I get sick a lot. I have used them on my kids for stuffiness, sinus and allergy issues, sleep problems and things like that as well. I love them.

I am also a doTerra junkie. I LOVE LOVE LOVE all of their stuff. My headache remedy is deep blue on my neck. Lavender and peppermint on my temples, behind my ears and down my neck over the deep blue. Before that it was 2 Aleve liquigels and a large strong coffee with an ice pack on my neck and forehead. Good luck!!!

You could probably PM either of us for more info on the oils. I'm a distributor I don't know if psych_mom is. If so absolutely go to her first. You won't be dissapointed they are absolutely phenomenal.

10 Easy Remedies That Can Heal Your Headache Fast...

1. Large Glass of Water. Sounds too easy, right? Well it works more often then you think. Dehydration is one of the MOST COMMON causes of headaches, so a glass of cool, clear water might be all you need to start relieving pain.

2. Deep Massage. You probably already know about massages and how they help to relieve stress & tension. However, what you didn't likely know is that a firm massage on the head, face, AND neck can quickly get rid of headache pain.

3. Aromatherapy. This is quickly becoming one of the most well known headache remedies around. Why? Because it actually WORKS. Sandlewood, peppermint, eucalyptus, lavender, and a wide assortment of other natural oils can be used to reduce, if not completely eliminate pain. These scents can be found in oils, candles, and even soaps.

4. Take a Hot Shower. Stand in the shower and allow the hot water to cascade down your neck and back. This should loosen your muscles and allow for better blood flow. Also, this would be a good time to use the aromatherapy "soap" that was mentioned in headache cure #3.

5. Ice Pack. You can use an ice pack, a cold towel, a bag of frozen peas, or anything else that's really cold. Apply this cold item to the back of your neck (or wherever the pain is located) and allow it to sit for about 5 to 10 minutes. This technique should help reduce any inflammation, not to mention help numb the pain a bit.

6. Using Pressure Points. One of the most underrated of all headache cures & remedies is using pressure points. It sounds far-fetched, sure, but it can provide great results if done correctly. Try It Out: Find where the bones of your "index" finger & thumb meet (the fleshy area). Apply pressure to this spot for 2 minutes.

7. Relaxing & Resting. Sometimes a headache is just your body telling you that you're overworked and way too stressed. Lie down in a dark room, shut your eyes, and just relax for awhile. Once this particular headache "attack" goes away, you should try to dial down your stress a bit and look for ways to relax and enjoy life just a bit more. (This is another one of those headache remedies that is much too often overlooked)

8. Diet. Do certain foods you eat always seem to trigger a headache? Then it's time to dump these items from your daily diet. Everyone reacts differently to foods (and the ingredients they contain) so it's important to take a CLOSE look at what you're eating and when these "attacks" occur. If need be, keep a headache diary.

9. Calcium Supplement. This can help to relax your muscles and increase bloodflow, which should help to alleviate pain a bit. A large glass of orange juice should do fine if you are without supplements. Many experts recommend taking a supplement which has both magnesium & calcium for maximum headache relief.

10. Exercise. Depending on the severity of the attack, this is one of those headache cures which might not be that easy to do. But regardless, you should definitely consider doing this before AND after the headache. Exercise will increase circulation & bloodflow throughout the body, allowing more blood & more oxygen to reach your brain. Exercising regularly should GREATLY help to PREVENT headaches from returning.

Excedrin, and lots of it.

I don't do natural remedies for pain because it usually doesn't work. The natural stuff sometimes helps me with anxiety or insomnia, but I f***ing hate being in pain and there is nothing in the world that gets rid of pain as quickly as medication.

Lavender oil - I like to wet a wash rag (warm or cold depending on what seems best) and add a drop or two of the oil to it and then lay it across my eyes and lay down for a while. It works wonders!
