Rachel Lim’s Story
Rachel tried this with her kid and it worked. But she used tin foil. Also she added coconut oil instead of olive oil, and added the ginger too.
Her kid always coughed at night, 2-3 hours before bed. She got some amazing results when she put it on the baby. The baby does not cough at all anymore. The ginger wrap worked in 4 hours only!
Honey and ginger are beneficial and people must be more aware of what they can do for you!
