We are now in cold and flu season. If you have a stuffy nose or deal with congestion, you are going to want to try out this remedy.

Garlic can give you relief since it has decongestant and expectorant properties. This helps unplug your sinuses by thinning out mucus. It has allicin in it which helps fight the common cold and shorten its duration. Jumble Joy has the instructions:

Get five garlic cloves, a pot of water and a bath towel.

First, bring the water to a boil. Then, crush the garlic cloves with the flat side of a chef’s knife, remove and discard the skins, add the crushed cloves to the pot of boiling water and turn off the heat.

Put your head a safe distance over the pot at about two to four inches and cover with the towel so the steam doesn’t escape.

Take long breaths — breathing in and out for a few minutes.

You also can get additional cold and flu remedies in the video below.
