- Herbs That Halt Headaches?

Feverfew and ginger: Research suggests that regularly taking feverfew reduces migraine frequency, while ginger may soothe symptoms.
 

Willow: The herb contains salicin, an aspirin-like substance. White willow is rather low in this pain-relieving stuff, so if you want more headache relief per cup of tea.

Red pepper: Studies show that its heat-giving ingredient, capsaicin, may help prevent cluster headaches.


Thyme: Thyme can be used in a compress to ease achy muscles in the neck, shoulders, and back that contribute to tension headaches.
