Overindulgence and the holidays tend to go hand in hand. Even though we may have every intention of not overdoing it, one drink often turns into one too many, and the next morning we pay the price.
Too much alcohol leads to dehydration and mineral loss, resulting in morning after headaches, nausea, and mental fog. Our bodies are trying to cope with being somewhat poisoned. Rather than trying to find relief with pills, which may only be adding to the mix, perhaps you would rather seek relief naturally. Help your body without the side effects of further stressing the kidneys, liver or stomach lining.
Alcohol works like a diuretic, which triggers frequent bathroom breaks, resulting in dehydration from the loss of necessary electrolytes. This chemical imbalance brings with it those morning after pounding headaches.
Headaches generally have three main pains in connection to them: the neck and shoulders, the forehead with the sinuses and the stomach with nausea.When we have a headache and are in pain, we tend to shallow breathe, which leads to poorly oxygenated blood. Aromatherapy offers wonderful essential oils that help with deep breathing and increased blood flow.
This oil blend contains five valuable essential oils, but the two workhorses are peppermint and lavender. Lavender is the mother of all essences. With just about any problem, you cannot go wrong in trying lavender.
Basil, Peppermint, Lavender, Ginger and Lemon all have tremendous benefits to help clear the fog, stimulate circulation, relax muscles and calm down inflammation.
Please be aware that I am making no claims that this salve is a cure for any medical condition. It is a result of information gathered on the benefits of various plants and home remedies. It has not been tested by the FDA therefore has no studies attached to its use, only feedback from people who have tried it. I have no way of predicting how individual cases will react to use of this salve, so please apply to a test spot before regular use. Please read the ingredient list and be aware of known allergies.
1. Apply the oil blend topically to areas such as the temples, behind the neck, over the liver area, to the soles of the feet and between the toes.
2. The oil can also be added to a warm bath for relaxing comfort. Use about 2 tsp. per bath.
For further relief, place a cold compress cloth to your forehead while in the tub.
3. Do not let the oil blend get into your eyes.
Help eliminate toxins within the body by drinking lots of water. Additional help for your kidneys is to add lemon slices to your water. Contrary to popular belief, black coffee only adds to the dehydration, so stick to herbal teas and water.
Go back to sleep, the best remedy of all.
This oil blend comes in a choice of a 1 oz or 2 oz. amber glass dropper bottle.
I do have glass roller bottles in the 1 oz. size. Should you prefer a roller bottle instead of the dropper bottle just let me know in the message box.
