Most of us stare into our computer screens throughout the day because of work. Unfortunately, this can lead to tension not just in our shoulders, but eyes, and brain too. This is why we often feel tired and even have to deal with headaches because of it. With that being said, using peppermint essential oils can ease the pain that we are feeling. You can add a few drops of peppermint essential oil with a carrier oil on your fingers then massage it on your temples when there is headache coming.
