If your back pain is caused by some other medical issues, aside from muscle tension, you should be particularly careful when doing exercises.
Why it works: Stretching releases tension in the muscles supporting your spine, and improves your range of movement and overall physical mobility.
5. Inhale essential oils to get rid of headaches.
- What to do: Add a few drops of essential oil to a tissue and inhale the aroma, add a few drops to your bath, or apply some oil to your temples or forehead. Be careful! Essential oils can cause burns so they need to be diluted with some other oil (like coconut oil, for example) before they can be applied to the skin. There’s a variety of essential oils you can use: lavender, peppermint, rosemary, chamomile, and many others.
- Why it works: Essential oils are believed to have a soothing and relaxing effect. That’s why they can be helpful for treating headaches caused by anxiety and stress.
