|Natural Headache Remedy - Slice of lemon rubbed on forehead!|
- If I had a headache, first thing was to make sure it was not from dehydration, so I would chug a huge glass of water.
- If I thought I might be sleep deprived, after the water consumption I would take a nap.
- Then there was always the possibility I just needed to stretch out my neck.
Then I found out about using lemon as a headache remedy. Fresh lemon is something I most often have on hand for my cooking adventures. I slice a lemon (room temperature or cold) and rub it across my forehead and usually within 5-15 minutes, my headache has vanished. If my headache is severe, I rub it across my forehead, lie down, and repeat every 5 or so minutes until the headache disappears (usually within 30 minutes). Now I do have to advise you to use caution: Do not let the lemon juice run down into your eyes, as that would cause a nasty sting. I keep a towel handy to dab any drips.
For bonus points: Use organic lemon and squeeze some of that fresh lemon juice into a glass of water, your choice warm or cold and drink up.
