A very warm welcome to our website page for Cough Home Remedies.
A cough is a normal reflex reaction to irritation and congestion in the throat and lungs and it's purpose is to remove and expel the irritant.
Before we tackle the reason for this page with our cough home remedies, let's take a moment and see what herbs can be used to help relieve irritating coughs.
Mix one tablespoon each of lemon juice and honey in a small glass of warm water, and drink regularly.
You can also trickle a teaspoon of honey down your throat at bedtime.
Honey encourages the production of saliva, which helps to soothe dry irritated throats. It also contain a substance called propolis which is one of nature's natural antibiotics.
Boil quartered and peeled oranges and lemons in a little water and then add extra lemon juice and honey to taste. Take at bedtime.
Lemon juice is loaded with Vitamin C which has been known for year to work wonders for colds and coughs.
2 Teaspoons of chopped dried marshmallow root
2 cups of water
2 cups of sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
Stir the marshmallow root and water and boil over a moderate heat. Reduce heat and allow to simmer for 20 minutes, slowly stir in the sugar, so that a thick syrup forms (see preparing herbs) and then simmer until the sugar grains have dissolved completely. Allow to cool and then gradually add the orange juice.
Marshmallow roots aid the body in expelling mucus and is therefore very useful for soothing irritating coughs.
4 cups of berries (remove all the stalks)
2 cups raw honey
Boil ingredients together and then simmer in a double boiler for 2 hours with the lid on. (use 2 tablespoons of water to start the syrup)
Pour into sterilized jars, seal and refrigerate and take one teaspoon several times per day.
