My experience is that Gina is right on. It might take some experimentation to find the best essential oil help for you. But I would start with peppermint, lavender and frankincense. Some have found Deep Blue very effective and wintergreen makes sense because its key constituent, methylsalycilate, is actually produced synthetically to make some pharmaceutical remedies.
Start with peppermint on the temples, across the forehead, and on the back of the neck.
