Aspirin is Dead To Me
I am the frequent victim of massive headaches. Whether my ponytail is too tight, my hair tracks are in too snug (no judging, some of us have slow growing hair), I don’t get enough caffeine (my addiction is a problem within itself), or my eyes are swollen from staring at a computer screen all day (digital communications professional), I am always in need of some aspirin. I could be a spokeswoman, that’s how much I ingest it, and that quite frankly, makes me very upset with myself.
Aspirin, you are dead to me. Do you know why? I have discovered a natural remedy that actually WORKS. It is peppermint oil. I bought a small 4oz. portion to test. When I feel a headache coming on, I use the dropper and put a little on both my temples as well as on my inner wrists. My headache is stopped dead in its tracks and I can now go about my day.
Peppermint oil can be found at any health food store or you can simply find it anywhere online. Besides assisting with headaches, peppermint oil can also assist with nausea, vomiting, indigestion and heartburn.
Hopefully I never become immune to this beautiful natural remedy. Aspirin does quite a number on your liver, and quite frankly, I can’t afford much more damage!
