All you need for this home remedy is a lot of salt along with some warm water. Salt mixed well in some warm water doesn’t only help in curing your runny nose but also cures your throat. With such dual benefits yet a simple strategy to prepare, salt and water mixed together.

There are two ways to take this solution:

  • Gulp it directly when the water is warm
  • Use a dropper to put a little of this saline solution into your nose.

This remedy helps more than anything for a runny nose. In fact, if your throat is uncomfortable (which is sometimes a starting stage for a cough), your throat will thank you for taking steams as well. Talking about frequency, keep taking steams once every two hours if not more.

Make sure when your water is steaming, you are putting a large towel over your head so that the steam directly enters your node and relieves it.

Turmeric also helps in treating your runny nose by loosening the mucus and makes your nose much less irritable of the dust particles.

Soak some of the turmeric powder in some linseed oil and warm the mixture carefully. Now, inhale the smoke emitted and repeat this not more than twice a day to notice a difference.

5. Eucalyptus Oil:
