Herbs to naturally relieve and treat headaches

- by Debra Anchors

Herbal tea
The Holidays. You’re shopping, traveling, wrapping, cooking and wham! - a headache grabs you. A calming cup of herbal tea may be all you need for relief. Try these tried-and-true herb combinations, brewed with 1 cup of just-boiling water and sweetened with honey:

½ teaspoon each of lavender, lemon balm, meadowsweet - or

½ teaspoon each of sage, rosemary, mint - or

½ to 1 teaspoon of feverfew -or

½ teaspoon each of rosemary, marjoram, peppermint

This video will illustrate how to plant mint in the snow, reaping the benefit in a week or two.

Happy gardening!

  5. This video was hilarious! I laughed and laughed.
    I shall never complain about the cold weather that I can grow MINT! ha ha

  6. Thanks for the great tips all year long. I don't care for snow much so I will get my candy canes from the farmers market. Someone else can grow them for me. :)
