Lavender Lemonade For Headaches

Headaches are inevitable. A constantly on-the-go lifestyle and strenuous activity can ultimately lead to these pesky pains, not to mention that most of us are sleep-deprived. Tried Tylenol? Your pain relief may have been short-lived.

Meet a surprising ancient healing mechanism: lavender. Lavender is an influential aromatherapy scent, scientifically proven to aid in depression and anxiety. So, who says sipping on a refreshing lemonade with this power plant in it can’t help your mind-bending migraine? Lavender is perfect for relieving dehydration and stress – two significant factors of headaches. This recipe is simple to make, and you can purchase all the ingredients at your local grocery store. Let’s jump into it.

Ingredients:

  1. Water
  2. Turbinado sugar
  3. Mint leaves
  4. Dried culinary lavender flowers
  5. Honey
  6. Lemon

Recipe:

Step 1: Add two cups of water to a small pot set to medium heat.
