There are many home remedies for the common cold out there, but which ones actually work? I am going to share with you the remedies that have worked for me and my family over the years, and hopefully they will help you too. There are many causes to the common cold and many symptom variations as well. That’s why I am going to give you a variety of solutions to relieve a wide range of symptoms. Here are my home remedies for the common cold that actually work for getting rid of your cold sooner.
1. Thieves Essential Oil
This is one of the home remedies for the common cold I’m sharing that has been passed down to me by my mother. She used to rub thieves essential oil on the bottom of my feet during the onset of a cold. Why my feet, and why thieves oil? Well, essential oils are said to be most easily absorbed through your feet, believe it or not! Thieves essential oil has many antibacterial and antifungal properties that help get rid of the virus causing your symptoms. If you apply this to your feet right away, that means you will be suffering for much less time. Also, this is really good for sore throats if you put one drop on the back of your tongue. It is spicy though, so make sure you have some water on hand!
