1. Lavender Oil

2 to 4 drops for every 2 to 3 cups of boiling water are recommended when inhaling lavender-oil vapors as a headache treatment.

2. Peppermint Oil

Peppermint home remedies open up the sinuses so that more oxygen can get into the bloodstream.

3. Basil Oil

Basil works as a muscle relaxant, so it is especially helpful for headaches caused by tension.

4. DIY Scalp Massage

Massaging the area in the back of the head reduces migraine pain.

5. Flaxseed

Flaxseed can help provide headache relief because it's rich in omega-3s.
