Home Remedies – Honey, Lime, Aloe and Onion to relieve coughs

11 Jul

I prefer to cure myself using home remedies than using a bunch of chemical medications…… I haven’t even taken a Tylenol to relieve a headache in over 15 years.

And I have mentioned you how I mix together honey, lime juice and aloe to create a syrup to help me relieve my cold symptoms.

So, if you develop a cough, just add a ¼ piece of small onion to the mix. The taste is more pungent, but juts drink it like you drink a medicine. According to some internet research I did recently, onions are effective against many bacteria and early American settlers used them to treat colds, coughs, and asthma. Also, the Chinese used them to treat coughs and breathing problems. Even the World Health Organization recognized onions for providing relief in the treatment of coughs and colds, asthma and bronchitis.

All those people together can’t be all wrong… so have your onion “jarabe” the next time you’re feeling under the weather.


1/2 cup honey

the inside clear gel of an aloe vera leaf

the juice of 2 limes

¼ piece of a small onion

1. Mix all the ingredients in a blender.

2. Drink about a 2 tablespoon measure every hour or so… or as often as you want.

It tastes good, so I would not blame you if you want to drink it for the taste as much as your desire to feel better.

    algunos de esos ingredientes los conozco y los uso como remedios caseros pero la cebolla solo la uso para cocinar 🙂 Mi esposo prepara té de limón con miel para los resfriados.

      Como todos los remedios naturales, éstos tienen su mejor efecto cuando se preparan inmediatamente antes de tomarlos. Lo que puedes hacer es un batch y te lo vas tomando durante el día, hasta que lo termines. Y preparas más en la medida que necesites más. Los alimentos frescos van perdendo su energía vital tan pronto se pican, usan, cocinan…

    My family has used this remedy for generations to treat colds and bronquitis. We swear by it! I’m so glad you posted it. I have a friend who is looking for a home remedy for his bronquitis and I told him about this and he was skeptical maybe if he sees it on the internet he’ll try it 🙂
