Catching a cold is a very annoying experience. Stuffed or runny nose, fatigue, shivers, insomnia… But, the most annoying thing is the constant throat itch that makes you cough and cough your lungs out. Cough syrup is the first choice, but it is loaded with chemical, so it is not the best choice. Thankfully, there is a natural way to get rid of the annoying cough, and you can to that with a simple ginger based wrap.
What you need for the wrap:
- Olive oil
- A small amount of ginger powder (about a tablespoon)
- Adhesive tape
Start by mixing honey and a small amount of flour with some olive oil. Once they are mixed well, add ginger powder. Mix again, thoroughly, thoroughly and then transfer the mixture onto a clean napkin, wrapping gauze around it. Fix the gauze to your chest with adhesive tape.
For adults – keep the wrap overnight.
For children – keep the wrap no more than 3 hours.
It is normal to sweat, so don’t worry.
