Home remedies?

My DH would like to know if you have any home remedies for post nasal drip. He says he feels like he has thick mucus stuck at the back of his throat. Sorry TMI I know!

  • I just got rid of this with a Neti pot...or he can snort a little warm water mixed with a tiny bit of sea salt.
    I will also boil water and put a few drops of Melaleuca Oil into the water ...put a towel over my head and breath in the steam through my nose. Tea Tree oil kills all kinds of germs and the water dilutes it enough it doesnt burn.
    Hot hot showers breathing in steam helps too.

    I hope he feels better.

  • Okay I just had this for the first time and it wasn't fun, Im prego too. I took Bragg's organic apple cider vinegar mixed 1 cup of that with one cup of water boiled them did the steam thing in a bowl with a towel over my head, along with sniffing eucalyptus oil and shooting salt and water up my nose. It was gone in about 3 day's. But I did all that 3-4 times a day. Worked awesome!!
