In the winter (which lasts quite a while in Wisconsin), many people get hit with the winter colds or flu. We don’t very often get a cough that goes through our clan, but when it does, it can keep an entire household awake at night with just one person coughing constantly.
Store bought cough syrup tastes terrible (unless it is loaded with fake chemical flavors), and who knows what is really in it!
We opt instead to make our own cough syrup with ingredients that we know are beneficial and healthy.
- 3 Tablespoons Lemon juice
- 1/4 cup Honey (local if possible)
- 2 Tablespoons Coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
Mix the ingredients together and warm in either a saucepan or in the microwave before using. Drink a spoonful or add a spoonful to a cup of herbal tea or warm water.
Store in the refrigerator.
