In cases where drugs for a cough are unavailable, an orange comes in handy. To prepare this homemade therapy, keep
your washed orange in salt water for about 12 minutes. Slice and pour salt on the insides of the orange. Use a spoon to dissolve the salt in the juice. Cover the orange with the top sliced part. Put in boiling water and leave for 12 minutes. Bring down and allow to cool. Drink
