Go to a random drugstore and you’ll find a plethora of cold remedies that promise to get rid of that nasty cold in no-time. Sounds great, but these types of medicine aren’t cheap and half of the time they don’t even work that well. Have you ever looked at the active ingredients in cold remedies? You can easily make some yourself.
Look in your kitchen cupboard and fridge to make these do-it-yourself cold remedies.
Stuffed nose – Combine eucalyptus and peppermint
In our opinion, a stuffed nose is the most annoying thing about having a cold. Especially when we’re trying to sleep we have a hard time dealing with a stuffed nose. Luckily for us, there’s an easy solution to this problem. Simply sprinkle a few drops of eucalyptus and peppermint essential oil on a handkerchief and hold the kerchief up to your nose. Breathe in deeply to relieve your stuffed nose. Another option is to fill a bowl with boiling water and to add a few drops of eucalyptus and peppermint oil. Hold your head above the bowl and drape a towel over your head and the bowl so the steam won’t escape. Don’t go to close to the water, you don’t want to burn yourself.
