Poultice: Mix 1 cup of dried chamomile flowers into 1 or 2 cups of boiling water, steep for 5 minutes, strain. Soak a clean towel or cloth in the tea, wring it out, and apply to the sore throat. Remove when the towel becomes cold. Repeat as often as necessary.

Chicken Soup is a tried and true remedy for cold symptoms in most families. Compounds in chicken broth quiet the activity of neutrophils, immune cells that contribute to inflammatory symptoms such as body aches.
Depending on your symptoms there are little extras you can add to your chicken soup recipe to amp up results:
- To get rid of stuffiness – add garlic. Polysulfides in garlic break up sinus congestion, plus may have a germicidal effect. Mince a fresh clove of garlic and add to your broth before heating.
- If you have trouble sleeping – add rice. A few hours before bed a small serving of starchy carbs will help you drift off sooner and sleep more deeply.
- If you are feeling queezy – add ginger. Gingerol compounds in ginger have been soothing stomachs for ages. Mince a 1/2 inch piece of fresh ginger and add it to your broth before heating.
