Even though colds and coughs are not considered as serious illnesses, but in some case they can be quite irritating. To be more specific, sometimes coughing can prevent us from concentrating and result in a lot of sleepless nights.
Unluckily, most people commonly take cough syrups to treat coughing, but it is far from the perfect solution as they actually suppress the signal pathway in the brain that causes severe coughing. Almost all syrups include codeine and dextromethorphan, i.e., ingredients that most often trigger side-effects, like rapid heartbeat, headaches, and drowsiness.
But, we are going to share with you an all-natural solution with no side-effects. We are talking about Honey wrap. The main ingredient of this natural remedy is honey, which is a natural antibacterial agent that helps in mucus expelling from the lungs. Also, it helps in cases of clogged sinuses and a sore throat.
Honey Wrap Recipe
- Raw, organic honey
- Adhesive medical tape
- Coconut oil
Start by combining a small amount of honey with a teaspoon of flour. Next, add a very small amount of warmed coconut oil and also combine it well again. Afterwards, put the mixture on a napkin then by using an adhesive medical tape attach the wrap on the chest.
Bear in mind, if this treatment is used on adults, the wrap should be kept overnight, but in case it is used on a child, the wrap should not stay on the chest for more than 2-3 hours.
After the first treatment you will definitely notice great improvements, but it is also completely safe to keep using it as needed.
