Hydration is key to help with any type of congestion. Drinking plenty of fluids with Vitamin C helps build your immunity by decreasing inflammation. Having warm liquids that feel soothing to the throat, such as ginger tea with lemon and honey, vegetable broth with black pepper and soup is a good practice. Herbal teas such as chamomile, peppermint, rose and green tea can have therapeutic properties, which makes them especially soothing.
