Do you hate cough syrup? Well, today I will show you a home remedy that’s more effective than it. Ignoring cough is never a good idea – it can lead to serious problems like a chronic cough, bronchitis, and other lung issues.
You only need coconut oil, honey, and flour to make this remedy. When you combine these ingredients you get a paste that you should wrap on the chest and treat a cough in days.
Unlike syrup which has side effects like dizziness, sedation, light-headedness and so on, this remedy has no side effects.
How will the honey wrap benefit you?
For one thing, coconut oil will disarm viruses since it contains lauric acid which helps dissolve lipid coating. And honey can help remove mucus from the lungs when used topically.
How to make the honey wrap
What you need:
- Coconut oil
- Raw organic honey
- Adhesive medical tape
What to do:
- Mix a teaspoon of flour with 2 teaspoons of honey then add warmed coconut oil.
- After mixing them completely, apply the mixture on the napkin and place it on the chest.
- Wrap it on the chest using the medical tape and leave it for 2-3 hours. Or leave it there overnight. Make sure you wrap it on the upper chest.

Raw organic honey
Ingesting honey can treat coughs caused by bacteria since it has antibacterial properties. Take a teaspoon of raw organic honey 1-3 times a day.
Thyme tea can ease coughing because it relaxes bronchi muscles. Put a handful of fresh thyme or 2 teaspoons of thyme powder in a mug then add boiling water. Cover it and let it cool for 10 minutes. It’ll be ready to drink – feel free to add honey.
Ginger peppermint syrup
This mixture helps remove mucus from the lungs and reduce coughs. To make this syrup you need 1 tablespoon of dried peppermint, 1 cup of honey, 4 cups of water and 3 tablespoons of chopped ginger.
Mix the ginger, peppermint and water then heat it until it boils. Reduce the heat and let it simmer until half of the fluid evaporates. Sieve it into a mug, add honey, and then stir. Put it in a bottle and take a tablespoon every few hours. Keep it in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
