Tried & tasted Home remedies for cold and cough for kids'

As weather is shifting from cold to hot, this time is quite dangerous for kids as well as adults. Specially kids, it's really difficult to protect them from this change of season. So, they get cold and cough, sinus and so on. For my kids, I never use any cold & cough medicine/syrup. Because, for kids cold & cough syrup don't really work. I like to use natural herbal produces as a home remedy. It soothes and helps kids to recover quite fast. This remedies I have tried and got extremely good results. So, I want to share with you all............


Home Remedies for cold :
  • Mix 1/2 a tsp. of honey, 1/4 tsp. ginger juice, 1/4 tsp. lime juice and a small pinch of black pepper in a big spoon. This is one serving. Give your kids the same at least 3-4 times a day. 
  • Oil massage : I also rub their chest, back, under the feet and palm with some hot oil. In a bowl, take little oil, add some black cumin seeds(kalonji) and crushed garlic, warm up the oil and rub on for 5-10 minutes, but the oil should be warm, don't use cold oil. Then cover their body with warm clothes. I normally do this before going to bed. This oil massage keeps the chest totally mucus free.
Home remedies for cough :
  • Mix 1/2 tsp. of honey and 1/2 tsp. juice of Tulsi(Basil) leaves in a big spoon. Warm up a little over the gas stove and give this to your kids 3-4 times a day.
  • In a big pan, boil some water with 4-5 cloves of crushed garlic bulbs. When cool in room temperature, filter the water and give it to your kid at least 3 times a day. A little sugar can be added.
For Dry cough :
  • Mix 1/2 tsp. ginger juice and 1/2 tsp. lime juice and drink it. It really works.
In cold and cough, the most important thing is to keep your kid's body warm. All these natural ingredients just does the same thing to your body, makes body warm.
