Natural Cold Remedies

The weather is changing, that means cold season is on its way. A few ways to prevent/ease your coughs/runny noses/colds: 

1. Syrup- Create an elderberry cough syrup from scratch. (great recipe)

2. Steam- Boil water in a pot, drop peppermint or eucalyptus essential oil into the water, put towel of head, and steam for about 10-15 minutes. That will clear up the sinuses. 

3. Tea- This tea works wonders on my family- boil water, put marshmallow root(optional, mixing with other herbs) in the water, steep for about 10 minutes, add honey and lemon. This will clear up mucus in the throat and ease the itchiness. 

What are your cold remedies?
