Lime is the newest "staple" in my kitchen.
Some months ago here on Active Rain, and I don't remember where, I read the lime remedy for headaches and commented that I would have to try it, but hopefully not soon.
As a sufferer of headaches, the question is not if but when you will get the next headache and how bad will it be? So I always take note of something that could ease the pain.
So, I've had a couple headaches and I think that lime doeshelp to ease the pain. And there is not a cure - only time has ever worked for me.... along with darkness and quiet and a soft pillow that smells nice and kisses help, but my husband isn't always around for that ....
Anyway, to use the lime I cut it in a slice and cut it in half and made it a wedge like you'd decorate a mixed drink with. Then I put the lime, squeeze gently if necessary, on my forehead and temples and along my hairline, including the back of my neck...
Repeat as needed.
It is a little sticky mess, but not to worry a shower and shampoo will remedy that! It really does seem to help some - so I will try to keep them on hand and find some other uses for them as well!
