Headache & Hijab

"Aduu, sakit kepala-ku."

In the early days of wearing hijab usually accompanied by dizziness and headaches. Some people didn't used to wear it (wrapping head might make you uncomfortable at first) and some are caused by wearing an underscarf/headbands/ponytail/bun too tight. To prevent by loosen it all is not enough, these are things we've found from Google that you can do if you get a headache.

1-- Use aromatherapy. This is an ancient healing art that has been used to treat and cure stress headaches for ages. Try lavender which is known for a good relaxation.

2-- Massage your temples, neck, face, and shoulders. Then take a lime, cut it in half, and rub it on your forehead. After that take a small towel and dip it into some warm water. Apply to forehead or back of the neck for a few minutes.

3-- Honey foot bath. Keep legs in a tub or bucket filled with hot water, pour ½ cup pure honey, soak for fifteen minutes.

4-- Apples are valuable in curing all types of headaches. It should be taken with a little salt every morning on an empty stomach.

5-- Try to take your mind of the pain by reading a magazine or book. Sometimes when your mind is engaged in something you don't notice pain as much.

6-- Dim the lights and quiet the room. Bright lights and loud noise can often make a headache worse.

7-- Try 2 wet peppermint tea bags on the eyelids. Hold peppermint oil on a tissue to your nose and breathe in the scent.

8-- Drink ginger tea 2 or 3 times a day. It has been used since about 2000 BC to cure headache.
