Natural ways to alleviate a headache
Headaches are one of the most irritating types of pain. They're not enough to stop you from going into work or doing your everyday chores, but they completely upset your whole day.
They make you tired, frustrated, unable to focus and upset.
Women especially seem to be plagued with headaches. Stress from work is only amplified by the endless amounts of chores and family work at home.
Although the majority of people turn to tablets to alleviate their headache, the relief given from paracetamol and ibuprofen is often brief and the pain simply returns hours later.
If you want to avoid chemical solutions, there are many natural homeopathic remedies you can try to help get rid of your headache.
Good old water is almost always the answer to any physical ailment. However, with headaches more than any other pain, water can be the quickest, cheapest and easiest solution.
Headaches are often down to dehydration, so drinking plenty of it rehydrates your body and your brain, lessening the pain of the headache and restoring you back to your normal perky self!
A great way to stop a headache in its tracks is to ensure that you get plenty of water every day. This will severely reduce your chances of getting ill.
Cut out the caffeine
Although many people believe that the cause of their headaches is a lack of caffeine, what not many individuals know is that caffeine is actually a main cause of the frustrating pain.
If you need a cup of coffee or tea to get you out of bed in the morning, that could be the root of your problem.
Of course a warm drink is an absolute necessity as the nights get colder, but why not try a herbal tea or drink instead? Not only are these free of headache-inducing caffeine, they are also full of vitamins which will you keep you healthy and happy.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
