You know those nasty coughs you get at the end of a cold? The ones that are worse at night or when laying down and won’t let you sleep? I hate those.
Here’s a brilliant remedy that works in seconds and lasts all night (well, nearly).
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (or a couple of drops of tabasco – I was out of cayenne)
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 1 tbsp honey (I use the manuka honey as it’s supposed to have extra antibacterial properties – worth a shot, hey?)
- 1 tbsp cider vinegar
- 2 tbsp boiling water
Mix well and take 3 teaspoons to calm the cough. Keep the rest by the bed just in case. Amazing.
