With extensive computer use, round the clock television and a generally more hectic lifestyle, headaches have become a very common ailment. Most people experience tension or stress headaches, located at the back of the neck or around the eyes and temples. These can be effectively relieved, and maybe even prevented, by the use of calming, relaxing herbs.
The most efficient herbs for relieving tension and stress headaches are lavender, lemon balm, chamomile and thyme. Try rubbing lavender oil onto your temples if you are spending a lot of time in front of a computer screen.
A warm bath with lemon balm and thyme added to the water has a wonderfully soothing effect and can stop an approaching headache.
Chamomile and lemon balm infused into an herbal tea and drunk during a hectic day help to keep stress levels down.
And finally, soak a towel in a strong infusion of thyme and use as a compress across your neck and back to soothe aching and knotted muscles.
Please note: If you experience sudden or unexplained headaches, if your vision is disturbed, or if your headache lasts longer than two days, you should consult a medical doctor.
