First, gargle with warm salt water. Run some hot water at a comfortable drinking temperature and add about a teaspoon per cup. Gargle for five minutes. Don't swallow any. Then make a cup of hot honey lemon water. Heat the water as for tea, then add a tablespoon each of honey and lemon. Stir and drink for a soothing brew.

Sleep with a humidifier on at night or sit in a bathroom with the shower on hot to breath in the steam for about 30 minutes. If your cough is keeping you up, put vicks vapor rub on the bottom of your feet while you are laying down.

For a single serving, I like to mix a teaspoon of honey, a dash of ginger, a dash of red pepper and a splash of apple cider vinegar. It is not the tastiest concoction, but it eases a persistent cough. To get everything loose I drink lots of hot tea along with this.
