Home Remedies for Coughing

Lemon and Honey “Tea”

Mixing 1 part lemon juice: 2 parts honey in hot water creates a great “cough syrup” that helps to reduce coughing and provide relief.

Throat Lozenges and Hard Candies

Sucking on throat lozenges or hard candies can help to moisten your throat and reduce that tickle you feel that makes you want to cough.

Hot Tea

Sipping on hot tea can help to soothe your throat and relieve any soreness. Teas containing peppermint or licorice are especially beneficial in helping to eliminate coughs.
