107 Home Remedies for Cough




Mix together lemon juice, honey and whiskey - take a tbsp or 2 and your cough will be relieved.

Also, mix together crushed peppermint hard candies and whiskey, let the candy pieces dissolve and take a few tsps. of the syrup mixture to relieve a cough.


All you do is make a good sized cup of tea (any tea works, but green is best). Then cut a lemon slice, and put that into your hot tea. Then also put about a teaspoon of honey (also put some extra sugar if the tea isn't pleasant eough to drink). Drink this several times a day and your cough should go away overnight.


I've had this horrible dry cough all day and I just ate some warm clam chowder and saltine crackers and noticed that my cough was not as bad, and not as frequent!


for a cough that you cannot control, kid or grownup, Rub Vicks Vaporub on the bottom of the feet and put on Sox and cough will stop within 5 minutes


Add one generous teaspoon of turmeric powder into a cup of boiled milk and stir. Drink it hot twice a day. Works just like antibiotic.


This sounds really stupid, but it actually works, and you don't even need anything for it. If you can't stop coughing, raise your arm up higher than your head. Just one--I don't know if two work or not. This has worked for everyone we have ever suggested it to!


DARK CHOCOLATE! About 2 ounces of dark chocolate contains 1000mg of Theobromine. Studies have indicated that theobromine is about 33% more effective than codeine. (1 ounce should be adequate for small children)

To make cough 'more productive' and sooth a sore throat:

Make some peppermint tea.
About 6-8 ounces of peppermint tea
Add about 3 tablespoons of honey,
2 tablespoons of lemon juice,
and JUST A PINCH of cayenne pepper.
(optional) a shot of liquor-- personally I like amaretto.
Stir all ingredients into the peppermint tea while it's still boiling hot.
Wait for mixture to cool enough for you personally to drink. Mixture tastes pretty good to- kind of spicy sweet.

Hope this helps you as much as it helps me!


I find that steaming yourself really helps to soothe mild-medium coughing (This is also a relief to nasal congestion, sinus-especially head congestion, chest congestion) If you don't know what steaming is-let me enlighten you.

To steam yourself (variations possible):
1.) Boil about 5 cups of water (more or less.)
2.) Grab a towel and a bowl.
3.) After water has boiled, (recommended doing the following in the kitchen) sit at a table and pour the water in the bowl.
5.) Quickly, letting very little heat escape, sit down and place the towel over your head and the bowl.
6.) Sit there for about 15-20 minutes breathing in through your mouth (if you have chest congestion/a cough) or in through your nose (if you have nasal congestion or head sinuses) This can be a bit boring, so i recommend listening to the television, music, or attempting to read (however it gets dark and steamy under there!)

Even though it is hot and may cause very mild discomfort to your eyes (I close mine. It's not as though I'm missing anything under there!) try to lean over as close to the bowl as possible. You will sweat, but you will feel your your chest aching less and opening up, your nose opening up/becoming runny, as well as your head aching less and opening up.

The steam helps open up your pores! It is great to apply acne medicine after this as it does wonders to your skin!

As you can see I have found this as a relief to many ailments including the following:
-mild to medium coughing
-chest congestion
-nasal congestion
-sinus (especially head) congestion

(even opening up your pores!)

I hope it helps you as much as me! Although it is a pain in the butt, I find that it does work wonders!

Get better soon! :)))
