Default Favorite cold remedies

What's your favorite cold remedy? It seems honey is great for relieving coughs. I like hot totty with apple cider, honey, rum or whiskey, a shot of lemon juice. When we were little, dad gave us honey, vinegar and water for coughing.

What do you like?

I drink lots of tea with lemon and honey, and I will do a saline nasal flush with eucalyptus, Rosemary and Frankincense oils twice a day fro congestion. Used to get a nasal infection ever time I got a cold until I started doing this.

Heal sty in eye.........Dial soap. Clean hands, touch soap, then touch sore spot on eye. Works in about half a day.

Ears ringing from shooting............Castor Oil. 3 or 4 drops in ear canal, put cotton in ears to keep oil in while you sleep. Do nightly till ringing stops. Repeat as necessary.

A bottle of Wild Turkey 101 and 2 table spoons of Platte River Honey. Put to table spoons of honey in a Dixie cup. Feed the honey to the cat. While the cat chokes on the honey drink the 101.
A good laugh and a good drink works wonders.

I put about a tablespoon of honey in the bottom of my cup with 1/4 to 1/2 a tablespoon of cinnamon. I then use the Keurig to make a cup of dark hot chocolate. Honey and cinnamon are great. Together they have anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties. If my chest feels yucky or I notice I'm getting sick, I have one glass at night and it seems to help though you're supposed to drink it twice a day. I drink Airborne too if there's a lot of sick kids at school or if I'm feeling worn down.
