It’s that time of year again: the start of cold and flu season.

Fortunately, most minor ailments will heal naturally after a few days, especially with the help of enough rest and fluids. But when you find yourself sniffing, sneezing and coughing all day, DIY home remedies can provide some much-needed relief. Natural ingredients like eucalyptus can help you breathe easier, whereas the scent of lavender is known for its relaxing effects.

What’s more, if you’re living with chronic health problems, you probably search for ways to manage common symptoms, like nagging pain and insomnia. And let’s not forget that tonics with health-boosting foods like ginger, ginseng and elderberry can support your immune system.

Obviously, home remedies are only suitable for minor health problems, preferably with a known or obvious cause like a virus or underlying, stable chronic condition.

And please keep in mind that ‘natural’ does not automatically mean a remedy is healthy and safe. Also, don’t diagnose and treat yourself based on online advice alone. When you’re experiencing health problems and/or your symptoms worsen, please always check with your doctor or other medical professionals what the right course of action is for you. 

Having said that; if you’re looking for natural ways to ease a cold, relax your muscles or fall asleep faster, check out these 11 DIY natural remedies from around the web.
