Ginger: has antimicrobial and antioxidant properties. It helps soothe sore throats, fight infections, and boost immunity.

Onion: onion has anti-inflammatory properties. It is a potent antibiotic. It can help ease joint pains and also helps with ear infections.

Garlic: Is a powerful antibiotic. It helps strengthen the immune system and is effective for fighting upper respiratory infections.

2. After 12 hours, add the olive oil and lemon juice to the mixture.

3. Sieve the mixture, pour it into a clean container and store it in the fridge. You can refrigerate it for 4-6 weeks.

2-4 cloves ground garlic

1/4 teaspoon Cayenne pepper

Juice of one lemon

A little honey 

A cup of warm water

For toddlers

Use one clove of garlic. Grind it and mix with a bit of honey and warm water and give them to drink. 

Also, make garlic oil and drop it in their ears.

HOW TO MAKE GARLIC OIL FOR COUGH

You can make garlic oil by using one garlic bulb. Peel the cloves and chop them into small pieces. Put the chopped garlic cloves in a frying pan. Add two or three tablespoons of olive oil or avocado oil to it. Heat it on low heat on a stove for 1 minute. Let cool and strain.

Using a dropper or teaspoon, lay the sick child or adult on their side. Put about five drops of oil in the ear. Wait for five minutes and repeat with the other ear.

Do this every few hours till the cough subsides.

If the sick person has a fever, give them a tablespoon of the oil to drink and also rub it on their body and under their feet.
