Do you have any home remedies that you use to treat a cold or other common ailments?

I'm home sick with a nasty sore throat and cough and drinking hot lemon water.
Curious if you ladies use home remedies before jumping to OTC medications?

Thanks, Jaidynsmum, for the beautiful siggy!

I don't do anything other than take a long, very hot shower and breathe in the steam for a clogged head. My dad used to have us drink bourbon (very little bit) for a cough. I hear that honey works wonders to for a cough.
♥Thanks you jaidynsmum for my awesome siggy ♥

Ditto to the shower or you can even fill a sink with hot water and put a towel over your head to breathe the steam. Hmmm. gargle warm salt water for a sore throat. Keep up fluids, wash your hands and change your toothbrush once you are better . . .
