  1. Cayenne pepper: Used in small amounts, cayenne pepper helps your immune system. Add it to food or make the garlic/honey recipe. It also helps keep you warm if you have a chill.

  2. Chamomile tea: Chamomile is commonly used to help you relax and sleep. It is also good for stomach problems and fevers. Don’t use if you are allergic to ragweed. Also, don’t use in large amounts (more than two cups a day) if you are pregnant.

  3. Peppermint tea: This is a favourite herb to use, especially when your sinuses are all blocked up. You can either drink it, or put a few tea bags in your bath water. Don’t use in large amounts if pregnant.

  4. Ginger: A favourite tea to drink when you feel chilled and tired from a cold or the flu is ginger tea. Cut off a one-inch piece of the fresh root and peel it. Grate it into a mug and pour one cup of boiling water. Let it stand for five minutes. You can season it with honey if you want. This is also a good tea for stomach problems.

  5. Thyme: This herb is useful for cough. To use, prepare a tea with one cup of the dried herb and one cup of hot water. Let it steep for 15 minutes. Strain out the herb and sweeten with honey if needed. Store it in the refrigerator and take one teaspoon every hour as needed. Only use this remedy for a day or two.

  6. Oregano: This is also used for coughs and colds. Prepare it the same way as thyme.

  7. Sage: Sage is a classic sore throat remedy. Prepare the same as thyme and oregano. You can either drink it or gargle with it, depending on your preference. Sage is also good for fevers.

  8. Cinnamon: Cinnamon is a remedy that may help your immune system. Add small amounts of the powder to food. You can also add the powder or a cinnamon stick to herbal tea.

Take the next step: When it comes to cold remedies, natural is almost always best. If, however, you’ve got multiple cold and flu symptoms you’re unable to treat with herbs, you can try a multi-symptom OTC cold-medication. And don’t forget the most important ingredient: plenty of fluids.
