2. Special teas

There are a number of different types of homemade teas you can prepare that can provide ample relief for a runny nose and other cold symptoms.

One of the most effective recipes is a simple one involving ginger and the citrus fruit of your choice (orange or lemon works best). Cut up a two- to three-inch-long piece of ginger and drop it in a small pot of water. Peel the citrus fruit and add it to the pot, then bring the water to a boil. Pour it in a mug and enjoy! It’s worth a pointing out that ginger has a VERY robust taste and a little of it goes a long way, so adjust the ginger amount to your taste. (If you choose to use an orange, be sure to eat it for extra vitamin C to boost the immune system.)
