11 All-Natural Cold Remedies

If you feel yourself getting sick, don’t wait. Try our all-natural cold remedies and feel better sooner.

When you get sick, the last thing you want to do is stay sick for an extended period. While there’s no perfect cold remedy to illness, there are a few things you can do and take to make your sickness more bearable.

  1. Drink Hot Liquids: Tea and honey can be particularly effective to soothe a sore throat. We recommend a nice hot cup of Antioxidant Tea with just a dollop of honey.
  2. Stay Warm and Rested: Sleep and warmth are the two things your body needs most. Cuddle up with a blanket and lie in bed.
  3. Echinacea: As a widely known all-natural cold remedy, Echinacea works well. In fact, it can reduce your chance of catching a cold by 58%.
  4. Ginseng: Taking ginseng every day can reduce the severity and duration of your cold symptoms.
  5. Nasal Rinsing: You’ve probably heard of the neti pot. Well, if you’re suffering from nasal congestion with your cold, rinsing it out can help you heal more quickly.
  6. Zinc: Some studies have shown that taking Zinc can reduce the duration of your cold from 7.6 days down to 4.4 days.
  7. Face Steam: If you’re feeling yucky, boil 1-2 cups of water in a large pot. Remove from heat and add two teaspoons of each thyme, rosemary, and oregano. Cover with a lid for five minutes and then put your face directly over the pot with a head covering your head. Try to breathe the steam in for 15 minutes.
  8. Hydrate: Water! Water! Water! Cold remedies are always about drinking as much water as you can, especially when you’re sick. Your body needs extra water to fight off your fever when you’re sick.
  9. Chamomile: Chamomile calms the nerves and helps you sleep better while reducing inflammation and fever.
  10. Yarrow: Yarrow, used in your tea or a tincture, can reduce the length of your illness and be a great cold remedy.
  11. Vitamin C & D: Increase your Vitamin C and D intake to support your immune system. You can do this by eating cooked vegetables and fish or taking supplements.
When it comes to flu and cold season, you can take care of yourself naturally. Try our all-natural cold remedies and get better sooner.
