10 Cough Remedies & Treatments

Coughing is your body’s way of breaking up mucus, clearing airways and getting rid of irritants. As annoying as it can be, it’s actually best to let your body take care of itself and do what it needs to do. But when your throat is painfully raw, or you’re trying to sleep, sit in meetings or handle business calls all day–persistent coughing is irritating and you want relief.

ExamplesHere is a collection of ten easy home treatments that I’ve gathered over the years, most are simple to manage with many ingredients found readily in your pantry. If I’ve missed your tried-and-true, please share it in the discussion area below :).

Homemade Syrup

1/2 cup honey
1 lemon (juiced)
1 TBS glycerin

Garlic Syrup

Thyme or Basil Brew

Horehound Medicine

1 oz. dried horehound leaves
1 pint boiling water

Simmered Onions

Another option is to strain out the onion after boiling for about 15 minutes, then bottle the juice. Drink the onion juice as needed.


Aloe Vera

Apple Cider Vinegar Mix

Rose Hip Brew

Garlic Plaster

This is used and prepared the same way as a mustard plaster [4] (which is also something you could try). Minced onion can replace the garlic if preferred.
