Home Made Congestion Remedy

I woke up with a cold Saturday morning. Minor head congestion, stuffy nose, and sore throat. I have been taking generic Mucinex to help loosen the congestion. I found two home made congestion remedies on Pinterest to try.

The first home made congestion remedy I tried you can find here at Fitsugar. I can't begin to describe how awful the burning was from the amount of Cayenne pepper. When mixing up the recipe I thought to myself that it seemed like a little bit too much. My sinuses did loosen up mildly, but no more than from taking over the counter medicine. From the awful taste I decided that it wasn't worth trying again.

The second home made congestion remedy I tried you can find here at Good Food Matters. The taste was pretty good and not nearly as bad. Again it didn't help any better than the Mucinex medicine. I should take more of it. However, I'm not a big fan of spicy.

I'm not feeling any better than when I started the experiments. Now my ears are clogged.

Vintage Umbrella

I found this blog Vintage Umbrella while searching for Christmas ornaments on pinterest. She has some great tutorials and craft ideas. Had to share them with my blogging friends. 23 days until Christmas. Who is ready? NOT ME!
