When you have a headache, Asafoetida can help due to its anti-inflammatory properties. It reduces any inflammation in the blood vessels which in turn relieves pressure and reduces the pain of a tension headache. A good option for treating a tension headache is to make a paste and apply to the forehead. Along with a teaspoon of Asafoetida, add camphor and dried ginger. Make a paste by adding rose water or milk and apply. You can also drink a tea made by steeping a dash of Asafoetida in a half cup of water for about 15 minutes. Drink it a few times a day to ease your mild tension headache.
