I have found that Village Naturals Therapy Headache Relief Lotion works great when I have a mild headache, and often prevents a headache if I feel symptoms coming on. It has peppermint, chamomile, and lavender in it. I rub it on my forehead and the back of my neck. Just don't put it on after washing your face or showering, it stings if your pores are open!
