{ natural pain relief }

Feeling a little under the weather? My hubby and our youngest daughter Destiny have been feeling sick for the last few days.
I am always on the lookout for natural alternatives to pain relief, plus I have many that I already use at home.  I love home remedies and like to avoid popping pills to feel better.
Home remedies for natural headache relief. When I first notice the pain of a headache beginning, I try one of the following:

  • Applying heat to the back of the neck.  Heat can loosen up the muscles that tighten with tension headaches. I love my handmade heating pad filled with peppermint and flax seeds.
  • Take a hot bath with a healing herbal tea blend.
  • Drinking one or two cups of peppermint tea. 
  • Boil five to seven rosemary leaves in a cup of boiling water, remove leaves. Add some honey, wait three minutes, and drink.
  • Rub some of my “Headache Calmer Relief Balm” on my temples and forehead.
There are a number of herbs that can help relieve headaches naturally. Peppermint being one of them and I have included many others in my Headache Balm.  My balm includes  an essential oil blend of peppermint, lavender, eucalyptus, tangerine, rosehip and cedar wood. This balm is available in my shop at Paula Parrish on Etsy.
Herbal bath teas have wonderful healing properties.  Try out this amazing blend from The Loose Leaf on Etsy. This organic Pink rose and Green tea blend has a fresh and  mild aroma.  It is full of powerful antioxidants, plus is sure to relieve pain, insomnia and  fatigue.  All of Meghan’s teas  are 100% Organic and Fresh.
I would love to hear your tips for healing pain naturally?  I love to hear from you so leave me a lovely comment.
Smiles, Paula
