Do you find yourself or your children constantly coughing at night and have no idea what to do?
You are not alone, many people find themselves in the same dilemma. Don’t worry, there are several cough remedies to alleviate your problem.
Home Remedies for Night Cough
For a long time, honey has been used as an effective cough remedy because of its ability to coat the lining of the throat, bringing instant relief. You can take pure honey without mixing it with anything. Two teaspoonfuls for you and one teaspoonful for your child aged aged between five to eleven years. For a child between two to five years, half a teaspoon would be fine. Avoid giving honey to a child aged up to one year as it could lead to infant botulism.
Honey can also be mixed with various other natural ingredients to make remedies that you can use when you suffer from persistent coughing at night. Ground some white pepper and mix a pinch with honey and use it three times a day for five days. If you love aloe vera, you can mix the juice or gel with honey to get a tasty and effective cough remedy.
Onions and garlic are a good source of antiseptic that will fight the cough-causing germs. You can cook with garlic, chew the cloves or crush it to get the juice. Use either the juice of the garlic or onion to mix with honey and take the mixture three times a day.
Better still, you could use garlic to make a garlic plaster by mixing some olive oil with finely chopped garlic into a thick paste. Then spread the paste onto a fabric and place it on your chest. Cover it with a hot water bottle. The garlic steam will penetrate your chest membrane to ease the cough.
Another natural remedy for coughing at night is ginger. You can either coat a small piece of ginger with coarse salt and then chew or add pounded ginger to some honey and a little water. Drink the mixture to ease your cough and relieve your sore throat and runny nose.
Using herbal teas is a sure way of having a calm night without the irritating disturbance of a cough. Herbs such as basil, aniseed, rose hip and thyme have relieving effects on coughs. Just make yourself a cup of tea and mix it with your favorite dried herb. Strain the mixture and sweeten with honey if you so prefer.
In case you have a dry cough, (see this site for more info) the best home remedy would be to take some warm spinach juice and gargle it to moisturize your throat. Alternatively, make yourself a cup of carrot juice and drink it hot. If these juices are not appealing to your taste buds, you can use soaked almonds. Remove the outer skin and make into a paste mixing with butter and sugar. By taking the paste twice a day, your dry cough will be gone in no time.
