Home remedies for migraine

Migraine sufferers take double the amount of prescription medications, and 91% of the people affected have to miss work during attacks. They also have to visit the emergency room twice as many times than those who do not suffer from serious headaches.

Here are some remedies

Ginger Tea

Among many uses, ginger calms muscle contractions and inflammation, which is great for combating migraine pains.

Wash and peel off the brown skin and boil the sliced uproot with some lemon, and lemon rind. Lightly sweeten with honey, or add sliced pear while making the tea, for taste. Boil for 30 minutes. Inhale the delicious smell of the drink and enjoy.

Peppermint oil

Rub it on the part of your head that hurts.


The benefits of yoga include improved circulation, relaxation, healthy blood pressure, and heightened neurotransmitter levels. All of these combined make for a great headache remedy.

Lavender Oil

Not only does lavender have a beautiful fragrance - it's also a great remedy for alleviating headaches. Simply smelling the soothing scent of lavender essential oil helps, so you can just put a few drops on a tissue and inhale it.

You can also add 2 drops of lavender oil to two cups of boiling water and inhale the steam. 

Drink Grape Juice

it's the perfect go-to remedy when a migraine strikes.
Grapes are an excellent pain reliever.

 Take a drink of 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.


You find this mineral in dark-green veggies, whole grains, and nuts. It won't help while you're having a migraine, but some studies show it could prevent one. You can also take it in pill form, but always check with your doctor before you take supplements.

Fever few

Fever few is useful in preventing migraines, due to parthenolide a substance that helps to stop muscle spasms.

This herb is also used in treatments of arthritis, lowering blood pressure, stomach problems, and improving digestion and kidney function.
The way that fever few treats headaches is by controlling the inflammation of constricted and spastic blood vessels in the brain.

Avoid Electronics

Migraines can come from not-so-obvious causes, such as bad posture, a stagnant lifestyle, neck tension, and inadequate or improper sleep.
Keep your electronic devices at eye level to avoid bad posture and neck tension. Get outside as much as you can and breathe in the fresh outdoor air.
Also avoid using your electronic devices before bedtime, especially in the dark. This can mess up your internal clock, and delay you from getting efficient and adequate sleep.

Put down your electronic device. Slowly roll your shoulders in a backwards circular motion, and stretch your neck from side-to-side.


 Not quite the same as acupuncture (no needles), one suggestion is to pinch the spot between your thumb and index finger. Gently increase pressure until there’s a dull ache, then hold until your head pain subsides

Heat Up or Cool Down

Applying an ice pack to the back of your neck can give relief from a migraine, since the cold from the ice helps reduce inflammation that contributes to headaches. 

Plus, it has a numbing effect on the pain. And believe it or not, just soaking your feet in hot water also helps get rid of a headache. For a severe headache, add a bit of hot mustard powder to the water. You can also place a washcloth dipped in ice-cold or hot water over your head for 5 minutes. Repeat the process several times.
