Try a course of grapefruit seed extract as soon as symptoms appear. Dilute 15 drops in a glass of water three times a day.
A hot toddy of lemon juice and honey is a highly effective remedy. Add fresh grated ginger for a warming touch.

Keep microbes at bay with herbal infusions

Thyme is a great choice thanks to its antibacterial properties. Echinacea can also be consumed in herbal teas to slightly relieve the intensity of symptoms like congestion, runny noses, sore throats, and headaches. Lavender and yarrow can help dilate airways.

Get more sleep

Colds generally last for around 10 days. To optimize recovery, try to get to bed early, rest as much as possible and keep warm. In the evening, a relaxing essential oil massage can be helpful, recommends expert Danièle Festy.
