Home remedies for a seasonal cold and cough can be quite effective in providing relief and speeding up recovery. Here are some tried and tested remedies:

1. Stay Hydrated

  • Warm Lemon Water with Honey: This can soothe a sore throat and act as a natural cough suppressant.

2. Rest

  • Adequate Sleep: Resting allows your body to fight the infection and recover more quickly.

3. Steam Inhalation

  • Hot Showers: Taking a hot shower and inhaling the steam can help clear nasal passages.
  • Steam Bowls: Boil water, pour it into a bowl, and lean over it with a towel over your head to trap the steam. Add a few drops of eucalyptus oil for added relief.

6. Spices

  • Turmeric: A warm drink made with turmeric, honey, and milk can be soothing.
