Natural remedies for hangovers!
Overindulged? Had a few too many? Suffering the dreaded hangover today?!
There are a few things that contribute to a hangover. Primarily, it is the body attempting to process the alcohol—a toxin it feels like it needs to remove. Additionally, they are often caused by the dehydration that comes from a combination of the diuretic effect of alcohol and the liver working hard to flush the alcohol out of the body.
Essential oils have a diverse number of effects on our bodies and minds.

Here are my top 4 suggestions for Essential Oils to use –
Ginger has long been known for its anti-nausea properties, so it is a perfect addition for hangovers. You could put one drop into a glass of cold or hot water and drink, or simply inhale this amazingly aromatic oil. You can also apply a drop of ginger to each wrist or to the soles of the feet.
Lemon can also help with nausea. Simply place a drop into the palm of your hands and inhale deeply for a few minutes. I once had an operation and was really nauseous when I came out of recovering and I remember the nurse giving me lemon slices to smell! I have continued to use lemon from nausea ever since!
Peppermint oil can help with your hangover headache. Its cooling effect and anti-inflammatory properties help with any type of headache. Place a drop in the palm of your hands and inhale deeply or diffuse. Also, place a drop to each temple and to the base of your neck on your hairline.
Lavender is a calming oil, and in this case, is perfect for a hangover. It can help to settle you down or get some much-needed rest and for the quality of your sleep to be better. Place a drop on each wrist or the soles of the feet, or diffuse in a diffuser.
