    Soak seven almonds in water overnight.

    Remove the skin and boil it with a glass of milk and sugar.

    Repeat this for 20-25 days. It helps in enhancing memory.

    Even chewing 7 almonds daily also helps.

    Remedies for sinus headaches:


    1. Dip a small towel in cold water, rinse, and apply to forehead. Once the towel gets warm, flip it to the other side, or dip it into cold water again.


    2. Lying down, in a dark room, maybe getting a 1/2 hour of sleep, will always make you feel better.


    3. A decoction of half a teaspoon mustard seeds powder and three teaspoons water, if instilled in the nostrils, redresses migraine.


    4. The juice of ripe grapes is an effective home remedy for a migraine.


    5. For a sinus headache, eat a jalapeno pepper as soon as possible. Within minutes your sinuses will start to drain and the sinus headache will subside.


    6. A peppermint steam inhalation provides quick relief for sinus headaches. Peppermint acts as a decongestant, and the combination of warm steam and the essential oil is doubly effective for opening up the sinuses.


    7. Mix 1 teaspoon finely ground cinnamon (called dalchini in India) in 1 teaspoon water and apply on the forehead. It is very effective in headache due to exposure to cold air.


    8. Make a paste from dry ginger with a little water or milk, apply to the forehead for sinus relief.


    9. Grind 10-15 Basil leaves with 4 cloves and 1 teaspoon dried ginger into a paste and apply to forehead for sinus cure.


    10. For a painful sinus headache, try a hot footbath along with a cold compress on the forehead
