>> PEPPERMINT is good for relieving TENSION HEADACHES
Tension headaches can result from some of the simplest actions, including sitting at your desk for too long. When it comes to easing the pain, medics like US-based health-care professional Dr. Shelly Meyer reaches for peppermint. “The menthol in mint relaxes the tense muscles that drive the headache,” she explains. To feel better in a jiffy, combine 4 to 8 drops of peppermint oil with 1 ounce of coconut oil into a roll-on bottle, then roll this minty mix across your temple and forehead for 10 to 15 seconds. Repeat 10 minutes later.

Avoiding or limiting your consumption of bladder-irritating foods and drinks (chocolate, alcohol, caffeine, etc.) may also help.
