Hangover Aromatherapy

It’s New Year’s Eve, one of the biggest party nights of the year and many people are planning to drink in the new year. Too much alcohol leads to dehydration and most of us have suffered the other yucky sensations like nausea, headache, and dizziness. I don’t drink anything stronger than sparkling cider or sparkling grape juice but I remember those sensations as if it was yesterday.

If you plan on drinking for New Year’s Eve or any other time, you can take some preventive measures such as drinking a higher quality liquor, drinking plenty of water before you drink alcohol as this slows down the absorption rate and helps the body to cope better. You can also take at least 1000 mg of vitamin C before going to sleep. People always say to drink black coffee to help you sober up but that only makes things worse. Drink plenty of water after drinking alcohol too because that will help to flush the toxins out of your body. Unfortunately, you’ll feel tipsy again until you go to the bathroom a couple of times.

These morning after essential oils will help return your body to its pre-alcohol state: juniper, sandalwood, grapefruit, lavender, carrot, fennel, rosemary, and lemon. Make your own blend from this list, using  a total of 6-8 drops in a bath or 4 drops in an inhalation.
