Having cough can be disruptive most especially if it starts interfering with your daily activities. It may even lead to other health conditions. Due to frequent coughing, you may irritate your throat causing inflammation.
A sore throat in turn, can pave way to high fever. Before your cough can progress into other health conditions, it is very important to put an end to it. One of the ways to do so is to adopt these tried and tested homemade cough remedies.
Make use of lemon by making a cup of warm lemonade to cure a cough. Lemon is very good in loosening up phlegm and clearing it up. Just add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice to a cup of warm water.
You may also add honey or other sweeteners to make the taste more acceptable. Another way you can make use of lemon is to make a lemon gargle by combining 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and 1/4 cup of water.
You can make your very own homemade cough syrup by combining a bulb of red onion and raw honey. You can also use brown sugar as an alternative for raw honey if it is not available.
Slice the raw red onion and arrange them in a bowl alternating between raw onion and raw honey. Let it sit overnight and in the morning, collect a spoon or two of the sweet syrup in the bowl. You can now enjoy your tasty homemade cough syrup.
Make fresh thyme tea by combining 2 tablespoons of fresh thyme or 1 tablespoon if dried and a cup of hot water. Let seep for around 5 minutes and strain out the thyme. You may add sweetener if you like.
