Slather some menthol gel on your neck, forehead and behind your ears – the mintier, the better!
Researchers from Thomas Jefferson University, in Pennsylvania, found 80% of migraine sufferers saw their symptoms improve within 2 hours of a menthol gel treatment… And for 1-in-4 people, migraines disappeared completely!
What’s so magical about mint? Researchers say “menthol appears to stimulate nerves that communicate with the brain to ease pain.”
For best results, get a gel that contains at least 6% menthol.
