The Coolest, Most Beautiful Hangover Cure Ever Invented

herbs
If you're hungover you've got a few solid options: chug a lot of water, eat something greasy, exercise, spend the day in a cave-like room, or.... wake up and smell the flowers — literally. Thanks to Brooklyn's first herb-florist, The Little Glass Slipper (only in New York kids), stepping out of last night's alcohol shadow into a productive day can be as easy as inhaling. You see, this pretty little bouquet actually has a serious punch. It's made with mint ("The scent lifts fatigue and relieves headaches. When inhaled It is also great at relieving indigestion and calming the stomach."), lavender ("It relieves pain and its scent promotes relaxation"), and geranium ("Its fresh scent is a pick-me-up for the mind and body), especially for a.ms like these. But this from-heaven herb shop is no one trick pony. The Little Glass Slipper also offers ready-made and bespoke arrangements for medicinal benefits, aromatherapy, and skin care. And yes, some of the concoctions are even edible — so if you wanted to go that whole binge route to shake off the evening buzz, you can do that, too.
