You can really cool things down with peppermint oil. Peppermint oil is derived from the peppermint plant, and if you have one its also lovely to simply pluck a leave and chew it.
Peppermint oil has a cooling effect on the body so it has a wide range of benefits and uses in this regard. Aside from the lovely minty taste you can use peppermint oil topically for natural headache relief.
You can just dab some of the oil on your temples or the back of the neck around the base of your skull. You can even put a few drops on a Kleenex and place it over a washcloth to place across your forehead or over your eyes. Relax lying back with eyes covered until the tension leaves your body or you feel some ease from your head pain.
There are tons more benefits to incorporating this all natural treatment in your medicine cabinet.
Get yourself a bottle like this one at your local health food store, and you can keep it in your purse for handy use too.
