Headache remedy


I love growing herbs that smell wonderful, like lemon verbena, which always looks like it died over winter and then magically springs up 6 feet in late spring.

But the herb which has made my life better is feverfew.

If I take 2 capsules every day, along with a certain vitamin and mineral, I don’t get migraines. I thank God for herbs!

My recipe to prevent headaches is:

350 mg feverfew
100 mg vitamin B2
500 mg magnesium

I take it twice a day, morning and evening. It isn’t like a painkiller, it’s a preventative, although if I start to get a headache it doesn’t hurt to take my next dose right then (because that’s when I usually realize I forgot to take it).
