9 Natural Home Remedies for Flu That Never Fail

Thyme

Thyme is a great expectorant for chest congestion and either thyme oil or herbal thyme can be used to help.  There are 3 methods that help with breathing in the thyme essence and loosening congestion.Pot of ThymeMethod 1: Steep two tablespoons of fresh or (1 tablespoon dried) thyme in a cup of hot water for five minutes.  Strain, add honey if you wish, and drink to loosen congestion. If using dried thyme, make sure it is of good quality and not too old as dried herbs can lose their effectiveness over time.  You can also add ginger (see below), lemon and half a stick of cinnamon to brew a tea that will fight even the most evil cold.

 

Method 2:

Use either the essential oil (just a couple of drops) or fresh thyme in the bath.  Breathe the steam from the bath to relieve congestion while the oil is absorbed into the skin to help strengthen the body.

Method 3:

Make a steam inhalation by pouring hot water into a large bowl, leaning over the bowl and draping a towel over your head to create a steam tent.  Add a few drops of thyme oil to the hot water and breathe deeply.  Keep your eyes closed as you breathe because the oil combined with steam can irritate your eyes.

Garlic: A natural antiseptic, garlic is a great immune booster herb that can prevent respiratory infections as well as fight viruses.  Take it regularly for prevention and if illness does strike, take it to help recover faster from the viral illness.
