5 Essential Oils That Could Beat Even the Worst Hangover
Hangovers are the absolute worst — pounding headache, churning stomach, fatigue, dehydration, and that awful restless feeling that just won't go away. Just hours earlier you were having fun and in the best of spirits — buying a round for everyone at the bar, ordering "just one more" glass of wine.
Hangovers, which are caused by consuming too much alcohol, can really put a damper on your day — leaving you bedridden and reaching for ibuprofen or whatever greasy sandwich you can get your hands on. However, there is also a convenient, natural option to turn to when a hangover hits you: essential oils.
"Essential oils can be a perfect hangover helper because they are completely natural, easily customizable, and small enough that you can fit them in a purse to use wherever you might end up in the morning not feeling 'so hot'," explains Sara Panton, cofounder and CEO of essential oil and diffuser brand Vitruvi.
Ahead are five essential-oil-infused products that may help even the most stubborn of hangovers. These essential oils are not meant to be a medical substitute, but instead are just suggestions for those looking to explore more natural remedies.
