Although cough syrups are commonly prescribed by doctors for severe coughing, they come with side effects like headaches, insomnia, etc. So, why not turn to more alternative options? One such option is ginger wraps.
Take a look at the preparation procedure:
- A tbsp of ginger powder
- Raw honey
- Olive oil
- Adhesive tape
Children should wear the wrap for 3 hours before going to bed.
Adults can wear the wraps overnight.
As these wraps increase the sweating, make sure you cover your sheets.
Rachel Lim used the ginger wraps on her child, and the effects were amazing. She changed the ingredients a bit, that is, she used tin foil and coconut oil instead of olive oil. She wrote on her facebook profile that her child was always coughing at night, 2 to 3 hours before going to bed. After applying the wraps, the child stopped coughing and no longer experienced nasal congestion.
