Most of the people try to treat common colds and coughs by using cough syrups. These syrups contain codeine and dextromethorphan, components which induce sleep, and which can cause many side effects, including a headache, rapid heartbeat, and drowsiness.

Instead of using these syrups, you may consider trying the following natural wrap. This homemade wrap will help you to relieve your cough, remove the mucus from your lungs, and treat your cold within only a few hours.
Preparation of a Cough-Relieving Wrap
This wrap is extremely easy to be made, and it won’t take any of your time. The ingredients and items required for making this wrap are:
- Ginger juice

In order to make this wrap, first, you should mix the honey and the flour until you get a paste. Try not to touch this mixture. Add some coconut oil and a fresh ginger juice to the paste.
After mixing these ingredients, roll the mixture in some flour again. Then, you should place this mixture on a napkin, and wrap it by using gauze. Apply this wrap onto your chest and secure it with a bandage.
After applying the wrap, you may go to bed. However, if children receive this treatment, they should keep this wrap on their chest for 2 or 3 hours before going to bed. Adults may keep the wrap during the entire night.
