A COLD REMEDY

Vitamin C- 1000 mg 5 times a day
One Garlic clove- chopped and swallowed
Oregano oil – 4 or 5 drops a day in water
Zinc – 100 mg a day
Apple Cider Vinegar – 2 TBSP in your water 3 times a day
A couple of other tips I found that worked over the years even on our children are rubbing Vicks vapor rub on the feet and covering with socks. We even tried an older trick by placing a piece of sliced raw onion on the bottoms of the feet and covering with a sock.
Coconut oil and Eucalyptus ( a couple of drops) can help a sore throat. Rub on throat and chest. As always be very careful when using essential oils.
Peppermint tea and peppermint oil can also aid in battling your cold. Placing a few drop of peppermint oil on a wash cloth can help your stuffy nose or you could also use peppermint oil with a carrier oil on the bottom of your feet as well.
Honey in warm water with lemon juice can relieve those coughs.
Good quality sea salt 1/2 tsp in 4 ounces of warm salt water can be used as a gargle for a sore throat
Steam inhalation for sinus congestion with eucalyptus or tea tree.
