17 DIY Cold & Flu Remedies You Need in Your Arsenal
Check Out These 17 DIY Cold & Flu Remedies that are effective!
1. Dip a Dum Dum lollipop in cough syrup if your child hates the taste of medicine.
Dum Dums work best because they’re small and easy to dunk in a small medicine measuring cup.
2. Rub Vicks on the bottom of your feet then put on socks before bed to ease a bad cough.
Vicks contains eucalyptus oil, which has antibacterial qualities and is used as a decongestant.
3. Use your Crock-Pot as a humidifier.
Fill your Crock-Pot about three-quarters of the way up with water, cover, and turn the setting on high. After about an hour, let the moisture escape into the air. Make sure to refill the pot with room-temperature water as needed—and don’t let the pot run when there’s nothing in it!
