Got headaches? Try feverfew and peppermint!
Feverfew historically has been used to treat a variety of ailments, including fever (hence the name), digestive upsets, arthritis, and migraines. Clinical studies have confirmed that feverfew contains a variety of chemical constituents that make it an effective anti-inflammatory and analgesic aid, most especially for the prevention and treatment of migraines, cluster headaches, premenstrual and menstrual headaches, and more general headaches. This 1 ounce dropper bottle contains a tincture of whiskey-infused feverfew. Take one dropper daily to support the prevention of migraines; otherwise, take one dropper as needed.
Peppermint, too, has a long history of medicinal use. Clinical studies have confirmed that peppermint essential oil is as effective as other methods in relieving headache pain. Pep Me Up is milder and less fragrant than an essential oil, as it is sunflower oil infused with homegrown peppermint. Apply to temples and under the nose as desired.
