Have you ever had the kind of fever where you just don’t have it in your to leave the house to get yourself cold and flu medicine? It doesn’t happen often, but every once in a while, we find ourselves down and out with the kind of fever that makes our muscles ache to the point that we’re not willing to move farther than it takes to get from the bed to the kitchen and back. Making it through a fever without any type of remedy, however, can be a struggle, so even if we decide against store bought medicines, we usually try to have a few things around the house that will help us make our own natural remedies instead.
Just in case you’re interested in learning more about DIY and natural homemade fever remedies, check out these recipes, tips, and tricks that we’ve discovered over the years and truly find helpful. Getting up and making yourself these in the throes of a fever might not sound appealing, but it sure beats having to put on pants and shoes to walk all the way to the store when you’re sick!

If you ask us, the best part of going through lists like this one on the Internet is finding remedies, solutions, and recipes that you hadn’t heard of before!

This tea from Homemade remedies contains Tulsi (an herbal leaf similar to dandelion), palm candy, and omam powder to ward off fever and fever symptoms and boost the immune system.
3. Strep throat fever tea
If you’ve ever been diagnosed with strep through then you already know how horrendously painful that particular level of fever and sore through combination can be. When we have strep, we rarely experience one without the other and since we experience it nearly annually, we’ve long been on the search for a remedy that will help us reduce our fevers and soothe our throats at the same time. That’s why we were so happy to come across this soothing strep throat fever tea from Healthrememdies4u! It’s made with apple cider vinegar, salt, lemon juice, and cayenne pepper. There’s a bite to it when it first goes down, but you’ll be glad to have this recipe and these ingredients lying around now that fall is coming and strep throat season is almost here.
4. Topical fever blister remedy
Perhaps one of the worst parts of getting a fever is that it weakens your immune system enough that it makes you prone to getting fever blisters. These are painful sores around the nose and mouth that last for as long as you’re ill and cause some discomfort. There are plenty of pharmaceutical remedies, but in our experience, many of the natural DIY are actually more effective and help with quicker healing. DIY Remedies suggests simply using garlic to disinfect and heal the sore as best you can!
