Another pinner said....My son's doctor told me about this 37 years ago. Use Vicks Vapor Rub and socks. Even the worst cough can be stopped within 5-15 minutes, and lasts hours. Just apply the vapor rub generously to the bottom of your (or child's) feet, and cover with socks. works 100% of the time, and has been proven to work better than prescription drugs!....hmmmm i guess it wouldn't hurt to try
For a nagging cough. So simple you may doubt me but I have had awesome results… all you do is rub 4-6 drops of Eucalyptus oil on the soles of their feet and put on socks.

No sinus infections in the house for years. When we get stuffed up we get relief in under a minute, and it doesn't settle or move into the chest. Inhale it from the bottle, or put a few drops on a tissue or cotton swab to carry around/ sleep with. When it is all of us I put 20 drops or so with a cup or 2 of water and simmer on the stove for a few hours. That also prevents colds from spreading (antibacterial and antiviral). One person I know puts it in her vacuum when she vacuums.
Homemade cough syrup. If you add a tablespoon of whiskey, or rum.. it's a great cough syrup!

To make your own shapeable ice pack: Mix 1 part rubbing alcohol with 3 parts water in a ziploc bag and put in the freezer. (The alcohol will prevent the water from freezing completely.) When it’s frozen, wrap with a towel or cloth of some sort and apply.
Lemon, Honey & Ginger Sore Throat Syrup There isn’t an exact recipe. Just thinly slice lemons in your glass jar until full, loosely packed. If you use a 1/2 pint jar, like shown, I would use 1″ of ginger sliced, or if you use a full pint I would use 2″ sliced. Then, just fill with raw local honey and put in the refrigerator. You can adjust the ginger based on how well you handle the heat.
