6 Comments for the Headaches Home Remedy

Caitlin

Way back then, my grandmother always did this for me and my brother when we had headaches. We loved it, and i use it with my kids today, they love it too! Boil some hot water and add some ground cinnamon and sugar and mix. Pour in a cup and sniff the steam. That is what you do if it is a sinus headache. If it is a tension headache, pour some of this sugar cinnamon water into a tightly closed ziploc bag and press to the area where your head hurts. This is great for the kids!

not exactly sure what this drink was intended for but it seemed to make a better drink then a remedy... my husband ended up drinking the whole cup! and started feeling better! LOL

Thank you so much for suggesting this! My mother and I both had the same kind of headache at the exact same time, so we figured it was a sinus headache. Ibuprofen didn't help, so we tried your remedy and our headaches were relieved. I noticed my nose cleared up from allergies as well! I was amazed and will save this creative remedy away for future use. Thank you again for sharing this method!

Oh, I forgot to say one more thing. For all of you who decided NOT to try this remedy because of the 'work' & time involved boiling the water, I just put hot tap water into a mug and microwaved until it came out with steam. Then when it began to cool down after a while, I put it back in again. I also stirred the mixture occasionally to make sure the sugar and cinnamon dissapated with the steam. Hope this helps!

Thanks for this! I just tried it after having a headache for 2 days from a cold. Nothing really helped as far as meds. This relieved it pretty quickly, I hope it lasts! I even drank it after and it's good! Thanks again!

Thanks for posting this remedy. I tried it today and seemed to help. I will definitely continue to use this remedy and will pass it along to my family & friends.

Honey & cinnamon is much better than sugar and yes when cooled drink it!
Also may add a bit of lemon. Great for acid reflux too*
