I have a couple headache-related things that I no longer need. If you’re interested, send me an e-mail with your address and I’ll mail one or both to you.

Five Quarters of the Orange, a novel by Joanne Harris — The mother in the story is a migraineur whose attacks are precipitated by the smell of oranges. I can’t say much else without giving too much away, but it’s a good book (the link in the title takes you to a review). I’ve read it several times and want to find a new home for it.

2.8 oz dried organic feverfew — A tea made from dried feverfew has been used throughout history to abort headaches. It could also be put in capsules and taken daily as a preventive. I have instructions for making the tea, but don’t know what a “dose” would be. Nor can I vouch for its efficacy — I can’t stand the taste, so I only tried it once. For what it’s worth, the store I bought it from, Butterfly Herbs, always has high quality herbs and teas.
