If you are in a time zone that has still cold weather at the moment, chances are you already had or will soon get a cold, cough and/or the flu. This Bougainvillea tea against cough may be just what you need.
I live in Mexico and during the winter holidays we did a road trip in the Quintana Roo,Yucatan and Campeche Provinces. Most of the time we got around 30 C / 86 F. We arrived back in Mexico and it was freezing! Needless to say, I was feeling a bit under the weather and started coughing pretty fast.
A Mexican friend had told me about this miracle Bougainvillea tea against cough and although I was reluctant to believe her, I decided to give it a try this time.
It works better if you get the purple flowers according to her. Good thing all I have to do is to go to the garden and pick some. I took it this morning and have never coughed since. She advised me to take it twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. It also works faster if your cough is not full-blown.
Bougainvillea tea against cough
