We’ve all been there – you hop on a flight that whisks you from New York City to Rome (or London to Tokyo or Paris to Phuket… you get the idea), check into a suite with a view, spot a nearby bar, and set your sights on a night of fun. There’s adventure to be had, but all you can think about in your headachy post-plane haze is sleep. Unfortunately, part of the glamorous jet-set life is the decidedly not-so-glamorous jet lag after-party. Lucky for you, there are more natural (and increasingly chic) solutions than ever before. Here, we’ve rounded up our favourite organic jet lag remedies that will keep you feeling lively no matter how long you’ve been in the air, so you can bounce from plane to pool effortlessly.
