3 do-it-yourself cold remedies

Dry throat – Combine sage and honey

One of the symptoms of a common cold is a dry throat. Your throat could feel dry and scratchy and even hurt. Try to treat a dry throat by spooning a few tablespoons of honey in a saucepan and adding a few leaves of sage. Put the heat on low and heat mixture while stirring occasionally. Take the sage leaves out after a few minutes and put one or two tablespoons honey in your tea. The honey combined with sage will relieve your dry throat immediately.

Prevention – Elderberries and water

Are you afraid you’re catching a cold? Try making an elixir of elderberries. Put a saucepan with water on the stove and add elderberries. Bring the water to a boil and let it simmer for about 20 minutes. Then, remove the elderberries and boil the water down to reduce it to half its volume. Let it cool and consume two tablespoons to boost your immune system.
