All natural homeopathic products are always my first choice because I simply don’t like taking pills or medications. Some natural medications work and some don’t. A few years ago I was blown away by the effectiveness of Avon’s Healthy Remedies Celadrin Pain Relief Cream, but haven’t been able to find it lately. I was so impressed with their Healthy Remedies line that I was willing to give their Healthy Remedies Headache Relief a try!
Avon Healthy Remedies Headache Relief comes in a .20 ounce roll on tube, similar to a small bottle of roll on deodorant. The top of the tube reads “From the Makers of Head On”. It claims to help relieve temporary aches and pains due to headache.

Other ingredients: Diazolidinyl urea, iodopropynyl butylcarbamate, menthol, menthyl lactate, propylene glycol, SD alcohol 40-B, sodium stearate, steareth-21, tetrasodium EDTA, triethanolamine, water.
Does It Work?
That is the million dollar question, does the product work? Well, my Avon lady says this is a good selling product, and that it works for her. I have to concur, it really does give relief from minor headache pain. What’s really nice is if I am having a really pounding headache, I can use the Healthy Remedies Headache Relief along with oral headache medications. The Avon product goes to work fast and takes the edge off the pain until the pills start to kick in.
Healthy Remedies Headache Relief is simple to use. Unscrew the cap and roll the product across the forehead, or in my case, along the sinus cavities. I get more sinus headaches during the winter season, and the menthol in this product helps to open up the passages and help me to breathe easier. I love that the formula goes on easily and it is not sticky or greasy. It can be applied before or after make up, and the roll on is small enough to slip into a purse, backpack, glove box or first aid kit.
I find this product great for travelling! I often get tension headaches when I fly, and even when I am out doing a day of shopping or chores. The roll on starts working quick, and is much handier than popping pills. The menthol in the roll on gives a cooling effect that I find relaxing and soothing.
I don’t know how many times I have seen those “Head On” commercials on television, but have never felt compelled to give it a try. When I saw the product associated with the Avon Healthy Remedies line, I took a second look at it, because of my previous good experience with their Healthy Remedies Celadrin Pain Relief Cream. I am glad I did! This product really does provide relief from headaches!
The roll on tube of Healthy Remedies Headache Relief retails for $7.50 and is available through an Avon representative, the Avon website, and a few other online stores such as Amazon.com and eBay.
