If you are suffering from a migraine, a cold compress can be of great help. It sounds a little weird, but if you first press a banana peel against your forehead before applying the ice pack, this will reduce the pain. How does that work? Your skin absorbs the extra potassium from the banana peel and that reduces the pain.
Lavender is known for its soothing effects. Boil six cups of water and add about eight drops of lavender oil. The soothing vapour that comes from this will relieve your headache as you inhale it.
Grab a hot cup of coffee if you are suffering from a migraine. Caffeine is also found in many painkillers because it strengthens its effect. Of course, the advantage of a cup of coffee is that it is also delicious!
