My go-to natural cold remedy is ACV Lemon Honey Water. It’s just a hot cup of Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar, honey, lemon and really hot water. This may not cure my cold, but it sure helps me feel better.
My son shared his cold with me. I’m on my first day. You know…..sneezing, clearing your throat, can’t breathe kind of day. My mother would be proud because I’ve been sipping on my ACV Lemon Honey Water. I’m full of remedies this month! First, with the Dry Skin Remedy I shared and now this.
ACV Lemon Honey Water
Hot of course! For as long as I can remember, my mother has been an Apple Cider Vinegar pusher. She had a paperback book when I was small that talked about the miracles of ACV. She was constantly making us drink it, rinse our hair, rinse our pimply faces, etc… It became a family joke.
Well, she is back at it, but touting even more benefits from ACV that has the “mother” like Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar or any other unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar. So when I’m feeling crummy, I reach for the ACV. Today I’m sipping on my hot water concoction of honey, a squeeze of a lemon and ACV. It keeps my throat clear and my nasal passages clearer. It’s not a cure…….at least I don’t think so, but it IS healthy for me and it makes me feel better.
I alternate between this and green tea all day trying to push liquids to hopefully make this virus leave my body as quickly as possible.
- Hot Water
- 2 Tablespoons unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar
- 2 Tablespoons Raw Honey
- Juice of a lemon
- Fill your mug with boiling water.
- Slice your lemon and squeeze into your hot water - don't worry about the seeds, they'll sink to the bottom.
- Add Honey and ACV
You can also try this over ice for a refreshing drink.

Natural Common Cold Home Remedies
Other remedies my mother pushed is Vicks on your feet at night. Oh, how I hated that. It’s supposed to help with coughing. You slather Vicks on your feet, put on socks, and miraculously you stop coughing. Works for me I’d say about 80% of the time. My dad swore eating raw onion and raw potato sandwiches would get rid of sickness……… I’d rather be sick.
Just to be clear…..I am not a doctor. I don’t even play one on TV. So if you think this is medicine to cure whatever you have……I’d talk with your doc first. I’m just a blogger girl getting through the day and sharing what works for me.
Can you Use White Vinegar
I’ve never tried it with white vinegar. I always use the unfiltered apple cider variety, which is said to have the nutrients.

There is nothing stopping you from pouring this concoction over ice. Many find it very refreshing.
