Peppermint is a soothing home remedy that has been shown to benefit headaches. It can be inhaled in a concentrated or milder form. Headaches and migraine pain can be caused due to poor blood flow, and peppermint oil helps to open and close the vessels that promote flow. Peppermint home remedies also open up the sinuses so that more oxygen can get into the bloodstream. Use peppermint oil in a diffuser.
Add ice water in a bowl along with 7-8 drops peppermint essential oils and mix well. Dip a washcloth in a bowl, wring it out and apply the compress on the forehead for 10-15 mins.
