#3. MIGRAINE
The Remedy: Peppermint
Rubbing peppermint oil (or wet after-dinner mints) into your temples will allow peppermint’s anti-inflammatory properties to soothe your nerves. Give it time – about 15-30 minutes – to kick in.

#4. SUNBURN
The Remedy: Milk
Apply cool (not cold) milk to your scorched skin, and the milk will create a sort of “protein film” that helps ease the discomfort.

#5. BACK PAIN
The Remedy: Frozen Peppermint
Peppermint oil, menthol and ice are all proven pain relievers. Freeze some water with about two drops of peppermint oil – or a peppermint candy in the center, if you’re scrambling – and massage the affected area.
