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

Amazon / Via amazon.com

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.

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 HessGet it from Amazon for $14.99.
