Honey

2. Honey

Something as simple as a spoonful of honey can work wonders on your throat. This isn’t just an old wives’ tale–scientific studies have shown that honey is an efficient way of calming a cough and can actually be more effective than drugs bought over the counter.

The reason honey works so well is not just because it’s thick and smooth, but because it’s rich in something called demulcent which coats the throat and soothes membranes that have become irritated. Not only is this ideal for soothing your own coughs, but it’s far easier to give to a child than a lot of bad-tasting medicines.
