1. This wearable headache hat that you fill with ice cubes and then strap on.

Amazon / Via

Promising review: "I've been stuck in dark rooms with blinding migraines more times than you'd think possible. Ice always helps dull the pain, but traditional ice packs are a pain to use because you either have to lie down on them or sit holding them to your head. I've tried almost every wearable ice pack out there and they're all awful, except this one. I love the fact that you can move the ice around within the band, as it means I can place the cubes directly on certain pressure points like my temples or forehead." —Rachel G

Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

2. This all-natural herbal balm that contains chamomile, lavender, eucalyptus, and rosemary oil.

Amazon / Via

Promising review: "This product is amazing! I've been a migraine sufferer for the last 12 years, and I've seen countless neurologists and herbalists. I've tried numerous medications, both preventative and curative, but nothing has truly helped. My migraines have been excruciating and debilitating, and I've been looking for real relief for too long. I apply this balm at the onset of a headache, and it relaxes the pain away within minutes. It's like Tiger Balm but better, and it doesn't leave you with a groggy 'medicine' feel." —Sasha Hess

Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

3. An eye mask that completely blocks out light and can be kept in the freezer.

Amazon / Via

Promising review: "This compression mask is everything I wanted it to be. I actually bought three of them, so I can keep two in the freezer and one in my bedroom. The mask is filled with beads that make it so comfortable to wear and allow it to fit to your face perfectly. It's very gentle and soothing." —GearedUp

Get it from Amazon for $8.42 or Jet for $10.64.

4. An essential-oil roll-on stick that's both relieving and easy to apply.

Amazon / Via

Promising review: "I've had tension and migraine headaches for around 20 years and I have tried everything. Over-the-counter medication, prescription medication, injections, a chiropractor, and more. This topical oil has given me relief for nearly six weeks now — I have only had two or three headaches in that time and they were all mild. I've ordered more of these sticks already so I have some in my car and at home. I would recommend this product to anyone with migraines. It is phenomenal." —Mary D.

Get it from Amazon for $10.99 or Jet for $10.49.

5. These sticky soft gel sheets that keep your forehead cool and your hands free.

Amazon / Via

Promising review: "These babies absolutely rock my world. They're more effective at reducing my migraine pain than any medication and more reliable, too. I just wish there was a way to wear them outside without looking like I have a head wound. They make it so much easier to function when I have a migraine." —J. Anderson

Get a pack of four sheets from Amazon for $9.71 or Jet for $13.11.

6. These highly rated headache vitamins that are suitable for vegetarians.

Amazon / Via

Promising review: "I've suffered from migraines my whole life, ranging from mild annoying ones to crippling 'should I call an ambulance' ones. For the mild I take an over-the-counter painkiller and for the worse ones I have a prescription painkiller that is super strong. I didn't really have anything for the in-between headaches, so I decided to give this a try. It definitely works! I take it when I feel one coming on and I can feel it start to work within 30 minutes. It's saved my butt at work a few times already." —DaniAmazon

Get a 60-capsule bottle from Amazon for $28.49.

7. And a multipurpose ice roller that provides targeted pain relief.

M&M Family / Via, Amazon / Via

Promising review: "I LOVE THIS ROLLER! It works wonders for my headaches. It also helps wake me up and reduces puffy eyes in the morning. I keep the roller in a plastic bag in the freezer, and it stays cold for a while when being used. This may be one of the best remedy purchases I've ever made." —T.J.

Available in five colors. Get it from Amazon for $11.99.
