hi fellow mylotters, i am just wondering who of you here have ever tried taking in oregano juice as an alternative cough medicine? i remember when my sister, cousins and i was still a kid and got a cough, our grandma would pick up some oregano leaves have it pounded and extract the oregano juice. she then woul let us drink around one fourth cup of that extracted juice as a cough medicine. the bitterly taste of the juice stays not until you take a cup of water. i would usually fuss around if i am told to take it because of the taste, but then that would help sooth my cough, so i was told. most of the time it really works. have you ever tried taking in alternative medicine instead of the medicine that we can buy from the pharma? if so, what did you have?

hmmm that sounds interesting, everything that is good for you tastes bad, I used to always take apple cider vinegar in water so I wouldn't get migraine headaches, and while I would have my little drink every morning I would never get a headache but the taste is awful, why can't these things taste nice....

Oh really?? I did not try oregano yet.. but I did try onions and radish.. These are effective to stop your cough. Blend the onions and radish together and drink the juice. I also used lemon and honey.. But I think I have to try that oregano too. I have an oregano plant in the house... this plant is good to use as spices for your cooking.

kenchiprincess I have never tried oregano for coughs although love it in pasta lol. I always used greentea with lemon and a little honey for coughs, it soothed my throat. I am not much on herbs as I never know which are safe and which could make you ill. I know theres no set quality assurance as there is on prescripton medicines. I do use aloe leaves for sunburn and small burns as it works very well. also mint leaves for soothing tea for upset tummies but thats about it for me.
