Home Made Cold & Cough

For a sore throat and cough

Home Made "Tea"

One glass hot water
2 tbls. Honey
1 tbls. lemon juice
1 Cinnamon stick or 1 tsp cinnamon

Stir and drink - relieves pain and helps to kill off any bacteria or viruses.
Not to bad tasting, even if it is a little thin.

For Home Made Cold and Flu make up the following salve

Home Made Cold & Flu Salve

1/4 C. Olive oil
1/4 C. Coconut oil
3-5 crushed garlic cloves

Blend all three together to make the salve - store in glass container in fridge.
Rub on chest if you are having cough and congestion.
In nose if stuffy, ear if infected.
For all around cold and flu - apply to the bottom or your feet - cover with socks.

Both of these work well - not as great as modern medicine - however - if you are pregnant or nursing and need something natural to get you through - these do make a big difference!
