I’ve been away for a week for a wedding (congratulations, Mark and Elizabeth!) and I came down with a cold within two days of getting home. Not fun! I found some remedies in the Tried Favourites Cookery Book. Some seem like they might actually be helpful – honey is supposed to be great for sore throats and coughs, but others are a bit confusing.
The above, for instance. Do you cover your knees with the blanket while still in the tub? Do I really want a soggy blanket over my knees? And what am I rubbing after the fifteen minutes is up? My knees? All of me? I think I’ll just skip straight to the part where I get to bed quickly with a hot drink.
My voice is still scratchy, too, so I might have to try one of the below remedies. I do have some lemons in the fridge, so I might actually try baking one. No promises, but if I do try it, I’ll let you know if it helped.
The Tried Favourites Cookery Book was written by Mrs. E.W.Kirk. I have the seventh edition, which was published sometime before 1907.
