DIY Tips for Home Cold Remedies #diy #homeremedies

We are finally coming out of nasty winter weather but that doesn’t mean it’s the end of colds, flu, strep throat and miserable spring allergies. My family always gets hit hard with all of those things.

While there are over the counter products that can help relieve symptoms during the duration of a cold, I like to use as many natural remedies, tips and tricks as possible. And when I do give my kids something over the counter, I want it to be as natural and safe as possible.

Here are some handy DIY Tips for Home Cold Remedies courtesy of Cold-EEZE.

  1. Stuffy nose? Use steam for relief.

    You don’t need a fancy humidifier to ease congestion (though it can be convenient!). Slowly breathing in steam from a pot of boiling water can work wonders! Just make sure to be very careful — you don’t want to burn your nose!

  2. Make it spicy.

    Incorporate lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, rosemary, cloves, pepper and ginger into your sick-day diet. Spices are natural ways to help boost your immune system and fight off viruses and diseases. Some other ingredients to include? Garlic, honey and coconut oil. Check out some more natural cold medicine.

  3. Try chicken noodle soup.

    A nice hot bowl of chicken noodle soup might be just what you need to fight off that virus. It’s a delicious home remedy that’s medically backed to help ease cold symptoms. Check out some of our Cold-EEZE Cold Remedy-approved tasty recipes by visiting us on Pinterest, and make sure to include plenty of veggies!

  4. Make your own nasal spray.

    It’s easy and takes a matter of minutes! Simply mix 3 teaspoons of iodide-free salt and 1 teaspoon of baking soda and then add 1 teaspoon of the mixture to 8 ounces of warm boiled water to create your own nasal spray solution. Use a bulb syringe to gently squirt the mixture into each of your nostrils, while holding the other one closed, and letting them drain. This will help clear nasal congestion as well as remove virus particles and bacteria!

  5. And of course, drink plenty of fluids.

    It’s so important to stay hydrated, especially when you’re sick. By drinking plenty of fluids regularly, you can help break up congestion and ease a sore throat. Some great options include water, herbal teas, natural juices (no sugar!) and ginger ale. Also be sure to check out some of our favorite healthy hydration recipes.

  1. Great remedies! I love ginger root tea with honey and cinnamon. I would add echinacea and goldenseal to your list of remedies. These herbs are great for cold too.
