Headache is defined as pain located in the head or the upper region of the neck. The disease often makes patients feel tired. In case the pain reaches its peak, it can make you so uncomfortable that you cannot do anything.

Headaches can affect the small portion on head such as the eyes or temples, or cause pains for the entire head region. Except for causing pain and discomfort, most headaches are not associated with the other diseases. If it is not a chronic disease, we may relieve pains by drugs or a safer way that is to use natural oils or lifestyle changes.
 

Causes of headaches
Stress and nervous tension are considered the leading causes of all headaches and migraines. In addition, there are some other reasons such as:
- Depressed or anxious.
- Lack of sleep.
- Hypoglycemia and dehydration caused by skipping meals or due to diabetes.
- Caffeine or lack of caffeine - this is the common cause of headache in people who have the habit of coffee addiction.
- Certain foods such as chocolate, cheese, beans or any foods that contain MSG (monosodium glutamate - MSG) can cause headaches.
- Tension in the eyes (due to too much eye regulation to watch television, drive in the rain, and read in poor lighting conditions...).
- Some scents (perfume, smell of gasoline or industrial chemicals, detergents...).
- Due to some kind of noise or sound.
- Excessive stimulation.
- Sunlight.
- Sudden Weather Change.

Treatment
Aspirin always seems to be the quick and easy remedies for headaches. In fact it is only a temporary solution, this drug can cause stomach pain. Medicines only have effect of "solving" the symptoms, pain relief but it cannot treat the root of disease. Besides, the painkillers can also cause dangerous side effects to health. So, when you decide to treat the disease, you can consult and try to apply some natural cures below:
- Covering cold or hot towels: Headaches can be a contraction, dilation of the blood vessels. So try in two ways: cover cold or hot towel on head. Maybe drop a few drops of peppermint oil on the towel and cover the painful area for about 15 minutes.
- Bathing in warm water in the shower or take a dip: In the bath, gently massage the acupuncture points on the head. A folk method to cure headaches is bathing with herbs, which is also very effective. Cook mint, grapefruit peel, lemongrass leaves... Or if not have time, use fragrant lotions extracted from natural herbs such as the lemongrass oil, rose’s oil, peppermint oil, lavender oil. Mixing with warm water and take a dip in it to relax. A sleep after bathing is also a way to dispel pain.
- Using the thumb and index finger to squeeze the spots on two temples, philtrum and neck: adding a little oil into the spots. This way of self-massage is sometimes very effective.
- Massage is a method which helps to relax the muscle being stretched: on the head, neck and shoulders, and also soothe the spirit, reduce stress, especially if dropping a few drops of your favorite essential oil, such as lavender oil, lemongrass oil, rosemary oil to massage..... you will feel comfortable and at ease. This method is very effective for those who suffer headaches due to nervous tension.
