Drink grape juice:
Grapes are an excellent pain reliever – who knew? Drink all-natural grape juice, or create your own at home to find relief. Blend fresh, ripe grapes with a bit of water, and you’ll drink your discomfort away.
Add a little pressure:
When you begin to feel the first tinges of a migraine, place a bit of pressure on your craniosacral system. By pressing with your fingers on certain migraine-specific spots, you can force your brain to relax and rest, restarting it from a pain-free place. Although it increases pressure in the cranium, it works to send the tension that’s building in your brain elsewhere.
Close your eyes and rest:
It’s simple but works. Just finding that time is the hardest part!
Warm up your neck:
Put a heating pad or a warm cloth around your neck and the base of your skull to ease tension. It feels good too, which is nice!
This is my personal “go-to” remedy! Massage lavender or peppermint oil into the temples and back of neck to relieve migraine headaches and ease feelings of nausea and anxiety. For Tension Headache, use eucalyptus or peppermint oil topically on the temples, forehead and wrists to alleviate stress and reduce tension.
