Five Home Remedies that Really Work
Being prepared for emergencies includes having knowledge of common home remedies for simple ailments from hiccups to sore throats. I am not a medical professional, but a mom who knows a few homemade cures that work. Your results may vary, and if your problem persists, please consult a doctor.
Nose or Chest Congestion
One of my kids recently had severe congestion and this remedy really helped.
You will need:
- Small pot with water
- Bath Towel
- Eucalyptus oil
Bring the small pot of water to boil. Using mitts, place the pot of steamy hot water in the sink.
Place three to four drops of eucalyptus oil into the hot water. To avoid burning, keep your face about a foot above the steamy water. Drape a towel over your head. Close your eyes and inhale the fragrant steam slowly. Keep inhaling the steam for about five minutes until the water cools.
A steamy shower is also known to help congestion, but it does waste a lot more water than the above remedy.
