Each time I take a pinch of lemon root, I give it a little color to add a little rock sugar for my child to drink and see that the baby is better. After 1 week, the baby stopped coughing. Khanh doesn’t know if the baby’s cough is not due to the effect of lemon roots or because of the post-Covid-19 period, but when she saw her child’s cough, she was happy to cry.
Another mother also shared: My daughter coughed, she was given some honey-soaked lemon root juice by her neighbor, she drank it with immediate effects, almost completely gone. But unfortunately, the amount of soaked lemongrass root is still a little bit, so it’s not enough to cure it completely.
