Kill the cough and get a good night's rest

First you gotta get some vapor. Believe it or not this actually works!!!! Rub it on the bottoms of your feet, then put on some socks(prefferably warm) and then, if your chest hurts when you cough, rub it on there and on your back too. Then drink a cup of hot tea with some honey. Add a slice of lemon(a juicy one) mix well, drink up and enjoy your good night's rest!!!!!!

Onion cough syrup

Grate an onion into a bowl. Add several tablespoons of sugar. Allow to sit until a syrupy liquid forms. Drain off the syrup from the onion and drink a teaspoon (or several).

I learned this from some Bosnian friends. Works every time.

Add half a teaspoon of turmeric powder and enough ground pepper that you can handle to a cup of warm milk. It soothes your dry irritating throat and calms your cough as well.

Vicks Vapor Rub on your Feet - SERIOUSLY!

Simply apply a layer of Vics to the bottom of your feet and cover with socks, slip into bed and fall fast asleep! This works on all ages. You may need to reapply in the middle of the night, but I have yet to see this fail (and, yes, it does sound rather silly :)

Cough stopper

I used to have bronch bad so was always searching for something beside the drug kind of relief...when it got bad I used to take a gulp of vodka and would cut the cough, but can't take that to work..so kept looking..found that taking a chicken bouillon cube and putting into a sandwich bag and breaking it into smaller pieces, that it would stop the cough for a time. Works good on my little kids...it is just letting salt coat your throat..especially good for the tickling kind...and handy to just put your hand in the baggy and get a little piece and let it melt.

Lemon, Honey, and Cinimon

Every year at the beginning of cold season I make this cough syrup. Take a jar and fill it half full with honey (I save a few extra honeybears and split it between the two) Heat the honey by putting the jars down in simmering water till the honey gets thin. Add a teaspoon of cinimon (more or less to taste) and fill jar the rest of the way with lemon. It works great, safe for all ages, and can be taken as often as needed.
