Your studying for your final exams when all of a sudden you feel it coming on. A headache.
It’s definitely your worst one yet, and to make matters worse, you’ve only
just started studying an hour ago. It’s probably from going over all those problems
in the small print of your text book. The test is tomorrow and the pain in your head is so
unbearable that the only way known to make it go away is to go to bed. But, in the back of
your mind, you know that you haven’t finished studying yet and if you go to bed now,
you’ll definitely fail the test tomorrow. Does this problem sound familiar? How many
of you can say that after continuously studying, your head starts to pound ? Well, there
is no need to worry about failing anymore, because, believe it or not, there is a new way
that studies are showing that can relieve your headaches, lower you stress levels, and
actually make you relax more.

Believe it or not, the newest way to make all those things I just said happen is by using
herbs. Now I know what your thinking, herbs, aren’t they just used for cooking?
Well, not anymore. In this speech I’m going to tell you what type of problems herbs
can be used to treat, which herbs to use, and how to apply and prepare them. When it comes
to what problems herbs can be used for, their are so many. Common problems that teenagers
have nowadays are headaches, stress, acne, colds symptoms, and depression. These problems
can usually occur around finals, flu season, and just out of the blue. Also, as teens get
older, they have more freedom and would hate to be stuck in the house sick or with a
terrible headache when a massive party is going on . Now, teens won’t have to make
their parents pay money for medicine that taste disgusting and takes days to make them
feel better. They can just use different types of herbal treatments that aren’t that
hard to make and can make the pain go away faster.

Now, you can’t just use any herbs for these problems. Their are over 100 herbs
commonly used, and not all of them are used for the same problems. When it comes to
headaches, the most known herbs used to make them go away is betony, willow, and lavender.
Some types of herbs used for stress are St. John’s Wort, Catnip, and Suma. Although
St. John’s Wort is used for stress, it’s also been known to be used for
depression. Another herb used for depression is False Unicorn. Beside headaches, stress,
and depression, another problem teenagers have is acne. Common herbs used for that are
Garlic and Cabbage. The most usual problem that teens have all the time is the common
cold. The most known herbs for that are Echinacea, Bayberry, and Cinnamon.
