Nasal Congestion


 Feeling a bit stuffy? Here is an old Russian remedy for nasal congestion. Beware it's a "little" stinky. *wink*


-1 garlic clove juiced with a garlic press
-1/2 teaspoon Honey
-Aloe Vera (preferably one leaf fresh from the plant)
-Two cotton balls

     In a bowl mix half a the garlic juice, honey, and aloe vera. Soak the two cotton balls in the mixture and insert them loosely into  your nostrils for about five minutes.

       Garlic into has LOTS of antibacterial properties. Actually if your sick eat raw garlic or dice some up and mix it in honey to eat. My 2 year old had an ear infection, I wish I could have gotten her to eat garlic. That alone can kill the infection (plus adding a few drops of garlic oil into her ear 3 times a day). I had a sinus infection, eat garlic(not fun) but it will kill the infection. The honey has antibacterial properties and is an astringent. The aloe vera will sooth your sore nasal passages.

What are some home remedies that you do you use?

For His Glory,
