Cough and cold are minor illnesses, but they are pretty irritating and annoying. The cough makes us unable to concentrate and this is an issue for people around us as well.
Although this is an uncomfortable experience, it is tolerable during the day.
However, this health condition can be a totally different experience at night, especially if there is a hard day at work ahead of us.
Small children, particularly suffer from colds and smoke because their immune system is not strong enough to fight the virus which is the cause of cold.
You would think that a cough syrup is the perfect solution, but most cough syrups only suppress the transmission of the signal to the brain that causes one to cough.
Such syrups usually contain codeine and dextromethorphan, the two main ingredients that help you sleep, and cause certain unwanted effects such as drowsiness, headaches, and fast heart activity.
Instead, we would recommend that you try this natural home wraps.

The Singapore Mama, Rachel Lim, has tried this wrap tape on her child and was sharing her experience on Facebook as an extremely effective one.
Instead of olive oil, she used virgin coconut oil and added ginger juice to the honey-flour mix and put that all on aluminum foil.
In her Facebook post, she said that usually after about 2-3 hours in her dream, her baby would start coughing abundantly and hissing. Last night she put the foil on her baby for 4 hours, and did not hear anything from him, not even the nose block, or the phlegm sound too! She didn’t hear him coughing during the entire night.
