Like many of us out there I often get headaches, and nothing ruins your day more. I like to try different natural ways to cure these annoying headaches, this headache steam helps to relieve the pounding and the scent really helps to unwind and de-stress.

  • Ginger Root (sliced)
  • Basil Leaves (fresh or dried, a good handful)
  • Mint leaves (fresh, a good handful)

Natural ingredients have a lot of qualities that can help your skin look and feel great, and many can be found right in your kitchen. Why these ingredients?

Ginger Root:
  • Calm inflammation
  • Control muscle contractions

Basil Leaves:

  • Anti-stress agent
  • Pain relieving and decongestant properties

Mint Leaves:

Step 1:
Gather ingredients and place in medium pot filled half way with water.

Step 2:
Bring water and ingredients to boil.

Step 3:
Carefully pour contents of pot into a medium sized bowl. (Be advised that the outside of bowl will be hot)

Step 4: 
Drape a towel around bowl placing your face inside the towel (like a tent). Keep face inside towel for as long as you can tolerate (up to 10 min) and take deep breathes in through the nose and out through the mouth. Repeat until your headache and stress subsides.
