Slices of lemon in hot water with a bit of honey and in between drinking that hold your head over a steaming bowl of red hot water with a few drop of olbas oil in. Put a towel over your head and stay there as long as you can.

Grate some ginger and add boiling water- tastes a bit foul but is brilliant. Hope youre feeling better soon.
