I concocted this quick & easy natural hangover remedy juice for Will and I the morning after an office party recently when we weren’t feelin so hot. It definitely made me feel a little less “eugh” – a little lighter and cleaner.
Are you hungover today? Or anticipating potentially being so tomorrow? TIP: collect the ingredients now so tomorrow when you’re stumbling around you’ll be able to throw it together quickly.
Here is a quick breakdown of why I chose these ingredients. They all have potent healing action, and turns out it also tastes pretty decent as well.
Lemon: is the most useful food for your liver to make enzymes with (aka helps your liver clean toxins out of your body more effectively)
Dark cherries: potent antioxidants plus an effective pain-reliever (via the action of their anthocyanins)
Parsley: is high in phytochemicals and antioxidants like chlorophyll, which help cleanse the blood
Ginger:settles the stomach, help with nausea and is also a strong pain-reliever
Raw honey: rich in enzymes and electrolytes
Pink salt: replenishes your sodium and trace mineral levels
Other natural hangover remedies
Chicken broth / soup: This will help build your immunity and soothe your gut. See my tips here for always having organic homemade bone broth ready to go! Add some simple chopped veg like garlic, celery, carrots and onions.
Peppermint essential oil: Is amazing for headaches. Sniff from the bottle, rub a drop on your hands and inhale, or dot a tiny bit on your temples and the back of the neck. Back of the neck is my favourite for an awesome cooling sensation, plus it’s away from the eyes so it won’t make them water. Here’s where I get my peppermint oil.
DigestZen essential oil: This is a go-to for when your stomach is queasy or you’re feeling nauseous. Just drop a few drops in your hands and smooth over your belly. You can also cup your hands and inhale – the fennel and ginger are very soothing. Grab some DigestZen here.
