Say goodbye to the dreaded headache with this all-natural treatment.

There’s nothing quite like a pesky headache to get you down. Whether you’re trying to work, study or just relax, a beating headache can really hinder your progress and lower your mood.

There are countless medications and over-the-counter pills that deal with headache relief, but in a society where turning to synthetic aids is increasingly accepted, considering natural alternatives is more important than ever. Thinking about the effects of putting chemicals into our bodies is a reminder that natural remedies are not only a viable option but a safe one without nasty side effects.

Thankfully, there’s one completely natural, effective and affordable solution out there – peppermint oil. Extracted from the peppermint plant, this powerful essential oil is known for its sharp, refreshing scent. It is 100% pure and natural and carries strong enlivening and detoxifying properties.

Peppermint oil has a cooling, numbing effect on the skin and boosts blood flow in the forehead, quickly minimising pain associated with headaches.

Try this natural remedy by adding 20 drops (1ml) to a 10ml carrier and massage into the forehead and temples for quick temporary headache relief.

Peppermint oil can also be used to treat a number of health conditions, including relieving nausea, indigestion, cough and cold symptoms, joint pain and more.
