To be honest, I really think that in every home in the world there should be aspirin in their medicine cabinets. And, we usually drink this helpful pill when we have a terrible headache, fever or when we notice the first symptoms of a cold.
We can also mention that this pill is a very effective pain reliever in general. Some people use it to help with their heart problems others use it to prevent blood clots from forming.

Here is what you need to do with it: make a mask by crushing up 5 aspirin tablets, mix them with a ¼ cup of water, and one teaspoon of honey.
