1920’s headache remedies

NOON

This was the first aid treatment for headache in the 1920’s.

“There are many remedies for this. Try going out into the fresh air or take a cup of tea. Half a teaspoonful of sal volatile in water often helps and so does a mustard plaster placed on the nape of the neck. A cold application is also good and aspirin usually brings relief.”

Taken from “The Modern Housewife’s Book” (1920’s)
