Coughs and Colds
Sometimes its not always possible to obtain remedies so it is always good to have something else up your sleeve. I have found these recipes useful for my own family through the years in the very first stages of a cough /cold. Medical and /or homeopathic advice by a professional practioner should always be sort if conditions continue more than a few days particularly regarding babies and children.
