Ginger Honey Drink | Home Remedy for Cold and Cough

cold and cough remedy drink

Most of us have experienced cough, and how much it hurts your throat. The sleepless nights because of cough. Getting rid of cough is not so easy with medicines too, but sometimes simple ingredients in the kitchen can give you great relief instantly.

Usually, apart from taking our medicines, we follow a routine of salt water gargling, steaming, drinking warm liquids, using vaporubs which gives us some relief. 

Ginger has amazing benefits, it is best for dry cough. Actually, you got to eat or chew ginger with salt. I am afraid the idea of eating ginger itself puts off the idea that its a miracle medicine to treat your dry cough and cold. Giving it a twist with taste, this ginger honey drink makes you more needy.

You can also drink this for indigestion, to reduce inflammation, morning sickness, eases menstrual pain and treats vomiting.
Well, I have been consuming this drink for almost a week now. I am feeling so energised, bright and light. Just the one shot glass of this miracle ginger honey drink keeps you relieved.So, I can happily call it the best home remedy for instant relief from dry cough.
