Some natural cures for colds are:
Saline Nasal Spray for Nasal Congestion
Saline nasal spray combats stuffiness and congestion by adding moisture to your nasal passages. It also removes bacteria from your nose. Unlike decongestants, saline drops won’t cause a rebound effect, where all the symptoms return as soon as you stop using it - its benefits will keep your nose (and head) refreshingly clear.
Licorice Tea for a Sore Throat
Hot liquids always provide relief for sore throats, but this tea contains therapeutic compounds that soothe soreness. It also helps to prevent dehydration.
Sage Extract to Get Rid of a Cough
Sage extract works as an expectorant, which helps your body move mucus from your respiratory tract and helps to calm your cough. As a good alternative to an over-the-counter expectorant, try a drop of sage in tea or hot water.
Elderberry Juice to Boost Your Immunity
Elderberry is an herb used to fight colds. It contains vitamin C to help strengthen your immune system.
