There’s a home remedy that’s helping people get rid of coughs and mucus in their lungs called a “honey wrap”—and it’s spreading like wildfire online as winter starts to set in.

Tons of people with throat problems have tested out the method and say it significantly reduces their symptoms or wipes them out completely. So what exactly is a honey wrap? It’s a honey-based pack that you put on your chest before going to bed. And when you wake up, you’ll be coughing less and breathing easier.

But why try honey wraps when there are proven cough medicines available at the pharmacy?

One reason honey wraps have become popular is that many cough medications contain dextromethorphan. This cough suppressant can lead to dizziness, upset stomachs, seizures, and hallucinations.

Another problematic ingredient is codeine, an analgesic drug that’s addictive and can cause breathing difficulties. Most places require a prescription for codeine, as it’s a narcotic, but cough syrup with codeine and dextromethorphan is still sold in some countries, which might be helpful to keep in mind.
