Home Remedy for Cough

Spring is a love and hate season for me. I love the warmer and longer day. I love to see buds coming out from the ground and flowers start to bloom. However, this is also the season of allergy. I’m allergic to pollen and my nose will stuffed up and runny at times and my throat will be agitated by clear mucus. When these symptoms hit me, I will have sleepless night due to the cough caused by agitated throat.


I remembered Lorna told me of a remedy for cough with orange. I looked up the remedy from the internet and gave it a try. After a few times, it does help to ease my cough. There is no harm trying this because it’s just orange and salt. Orange is rich in Vitamin C and salt has antiseptic value.

    You know what worked for me recently? I didn’t believe my friend when she suggested this as she tried.

    Gargle with vinegar + some water. I did it twice (am & pm) for a day and my cough was gone.
