drank Peppermint by Lipton
1702 tasting notes

Not my favorite peppermint by far, but handy during the day. Hoping it does something to lighten a wicked headache.

Just curious — best headache-cure tea you ’ve encountered?

Mercuryhime

Sleep is the only thing that works for me. If it’s a stress headache, maybe try some relaxing herbs like chamomile or lavender. Feel better.

I was going to say the same as Mercuryhime – closing my eyes for sometimes as little as 15 minutes can get rid of a headache for me. I try to do that and if it doesn’t work – advil or aleve. It usually does not come to taking medicine, though!

I’m overbudget on the pharmaceuticals of late; been alternating peppermint with chamomile and it may be lightening just a tetch. Lavender bath sounds nice…that may have to go on the evening agenda.

I’m with Mercuryhime and JacquelineM sleep is a huge help if you can get it. Peppermint oil on you temples, a hot bath, and DAVIDsTEA Mother’s Little Helper has worked for me in the past. (((Suck it headache hugs)))

The Purrfect Cup

Sleep is always good. But I’ve made my own mix of spearmint and chamomile and I prefer the spearmint to peppermint. It helps (using it to wash down a little advil never hurt either). Hope you feel better.

Bio

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
