DIY Honey Wraps to Cure Cough and Eliminate Mucus from the Lungs

Natural Honey Wrap for Relieving Cough and Congestion

Honey has been revered for centuries as a powerful natural remedy, with applications ranging from wound healing to soothing coughs and sore throats. Recent guidelines from reputable health institutions such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and Public Health England (PHE) advocate for using honey as the primary treatment for coughs, based on substantial scientific evidence.

The scientific consensus supports the effectiveness of honey in alleviating the symptoms of acute coughs associated with upper respiratory tract infections. This remedy can reduce both the frequency and severity of coughing. It’s important to note that this recommendation is applicable to adults and children over 5 years of age, as honey is not considered safe for children under the age of 1.

For a natural remedy to address congestion and coughs, consider making a DIY Honey Wrap:

DIY Honey Wrap Home Remedy


  • Organic Pure Honey
  • Gently melted Organic Coconut Oil
  • Coconut Flour
  • Gauze, Napkin, Paper Towel, or Handkerchief
  • Adhesive Medical Tape
  • Cheesecloth


  1. Create a paste by combining honey and coconut flour until it is no longer sticky.
  2. Add the gently melted coconut oil to the mixture, adjusting the flour if needed.
  3. Spread the resulting paste onto a chosen material, such as a napkin or gauze.
  4. Wrap the paste-covered material in cheesecloth and place it on the chest.
  5. Secure the wrap with medical tape, and wear a shirt or pajamas over it.

For children, apply the wrap a few hours before bedtime, removing it before they go to sleep. Test a small amount of the paste on the child’s arm to check for any allergic reactions before applying the wrap. Adults can leave the wraps on overnight. The warming effect of honey may lead to sweating, a common symptom during this treatment. Relief is often experienced after the first application.
