13. Coconut Lavender Lemonade

Coconut water contains hydrating electrolytes, which is wonderful if your headache is caused by dehydration. Plus, it gives the lemonade a nice tropical flavor.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ tablespoons dried lavender
  • 2 3/4 cups coconut sugar
  • 4 3/4 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice, about 9 lemons
  • 8 cups coconut water

Instructions:

  1. Combine a cup of sugar, ¾ cups of water, and lavender in a medium, heavy saucepan.
  2. Bring to a boil on high heat.
  3. Remove from the heat after 1 minute, cover, and let the lavender steep for 20 minutes.
  4. Strain through a fine mesh sieve to remove the lavender.
  5. Set the syrup aside to cool.
  6. While you wait, combine the lemon juice, leftover sugar, coconut water, and water into a pitcher.
  7. Shake or stir vigorously until all the sugar is dissolved.
  8. Pour the lavender syrup into the pitcher and stir.
  9. Serve and enjoy.

14. Sparkling Thyme and Lavender Lemonade

Thyme, like rosemary, contains carvacrol, a substance that acts as a COX-II inhibitor. One study found that it works similar to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen (9). Plus, it tastes great!
