42 Home Remedies for Cold and Cough


for a cough that is in the chest and lungs (unproductive) take 1 tablespoon of dried thyme a good pinch of cayenne pepper and some honey in a glass of hot water. I tried this when antibiotics from the doctor did not work, not only did my chest start to feel better but i also got a fantastic sleep. i looked up thyme and apparently its been used as a sleep aid and anntiseptic for centuries also was used for courage. by the way remember to strain the above mixture.

I have to say I'm not expert other than suffering from a hideous head cold & next 3 things have helped hugely & in quite a short time! Firstly Vicks vapour rub on feet then very thick socks, followed by a peeled onion sat beside me & finally a large measure of spiced rum in hot water & honey! I hope it works for others!


Have a hot toddy . Add a slice of lemon to hot water add some sugar and whiskey(optional)


I have a really bad froght at the moment so I put a few tea spoon in hot water and mix with a fair amount of lemon juice. The lemon cleans your froght and the honey coats it and keeps it protected, it feels a bit like plastic but really helps fight the germs.


Get some fresh Ginger and put it in a juicer. Add some fresh lemon and some turmeric powder add honey or sugar as the ginger is hot in taste.


I find that having a hot shower, then a mug of hot green tea with lemon and honey, then rubbing my feet with Vick's Vapo-Rub then putting on my socks and instantly going to sleep works wonders for a cough, clogged throat, or cold. Hope this helps!


just drink a medlemon with a freshly lemon inside also add a disprin with boiling kettle water.
after drinking the medlemon go straight to bed under the blankets and sweat it out.
next morning you will feel good as new.
