Herbs to Ease Your Hangover Part 2
Keep these natural, herbal solutions close at hand to help dispel that morning-after feeling as quickly as possible.
- Juniper – Juniper (from which gin is made) is reviving and restorative, the one time the hair of the dog really can be beneficial. Sip one small glass of gin and tonic with a splash of lemon and a teaspoon of honey. Avoid if pregnant. The juniper in gin is, oddly enough, a reviving agent.
- Lime – Lime is one of the great natural refreshers. A glass of lime juice and a couple of slices of lime in a glass of still water will act as a restorative, lending you fresh energy. It can also aid digestion and boost your mood. The citrus fruit lime is very refreshing, either in water or as juice.
- Lemon – This natural stimulant is refreshing, purifying, reviving, strengthening and soothing. It works specially well on your mind to help you focus when you’re feeling a little fuzzy, a godsend during rough post drinking periods. Lemon is one of the all purpose restorative, notably helping you to focus.
- Milk Thistle – Milk thistle has a remarkable ability to protect the liver from damage caused by over consumption of alcohol. The flower heads can be eaten in salads or made into herbal tea. Milk thistle flowerhead can be brewed or eaten straight.
