Back Pain
Massages, peppermint-oil menthol and ice are all proven pain relievers.

Try: Alleviate back pain with a peppermint-ice massage. Begin by freezing a mixture of a cup of water and two drops of peppermint oil in a paper cup. When the ice has hardened, remove the paper cup and have a friend massage the frozen mixture directly onto your back.
