Cold Fighting Homemade Arsenal - 3 natural & budget friendly alternatives to store-bought that you can make at home

-cough cough-



If that’s the sounds you’re hearing in your house, I think it’s time for a homemade cold fighting arsenal.

All of these are previously posted recipes here on the Mrs, but I thought it would be nice to have a standing page with links to them all.

Homemade ‘Vicks’ Vapor Rub – use it just as you would the store-bought stuff, and it’s safe for children over 12 months too!


Shower Soothers – Just pop one of the discs in the bottom of your shower for some stuffy-nose relief.


Grandma’s Cough Syrup: Just 3 ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry, and it’s a fabulous throat soother.
