Home Remedy For Cough and Cold

April 3, 2019



Before I realized Winter season is over, with a change in weather, comes cold and flu. No matter what I do to prevent and protect my family from getting a cold and flu, we are bound to get one cold a year. This cold and flu happened mostly in changing season from winter to warm weather especially when all the activities just began our body wearying and inevitably come down with cold. 


Usually, I treated the common cold and flu with over the counter medicine. But when you irritate with inflamed nose and throat, medicate yourself round the clock, and yet no improvement. You know you need something more, something that can help soothe the pain.


While we know that nothing we can do to cure a common cold completely, and the antibiotic is not an option, there are fantastic home remedies that have been passed along throughout the generations to help ease the symptoms. 


This natural cough reliever and flu-fighting hot drink are easy to do with the minimal effort to make, especially when you are not feeling well and you need much rest.


Here is a remarkable home remedy that I've been taking since I was a little girl. Although I got used to the taste, apparently my kids need to learn to like it and so far they did a good job.







  • 3 tablespoon of raw Honey or the best is Manuka honey: coats the throat and provide some relief also has mild antibacterial properties reduce inflammation and attack the bacteria that cause pain.

  • 2 inches Lemon Grass: are enriched with anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that help decongestant your respiratory system

  • Half cut of Lemon or Lime: the astringent juice will help shrink swollen throat tissue and create a hostile (acidic) environment for viruses and bacteria.

  • 2 inches Ginger: is natural analgesic that can soothe irritation of sore throat and also anti-inflammatory.

  • 1 cup of water













On the small pan put water, ginger, and lemongrass and bring to boil, simmer for another 10 minutes and add honey. Put aside and before you drink it to add a lemon juice. Drink it while it is still warm, twice a day — the best time to take it when the symptom first appear.










































Thank you so much for reading, please stay healthy, drink lots of water and stay in touch!
