natural remedy for sniffles

What can you do with a congested head? Enough with the allergy pills and the nose-blowing! Here’s a natural remedy for instant relief…

To stop sniffling, swallow one teaspoon of honey with freshly ground pepper sprinkled on it (one-eighth teaspoon of pepper should be enough). Or ground red cayenne pepper will work, too (use less than the pepper…it’s strong stuff!). Don’t inhale any of the pepper, or you’ll trade the sniffles for a bunch of sneezes.

Warning: People with diabetes or allergies to honey should not try this remedy.
