I am on “all natural and homemade” kick right now, so when hubby and the kids started coughing, I made them some homemade cough syrup . Actually, it was more of a drink, than a syrup. It takes 2 minutes to make and the spices in it make it very effective: all of your breathing passages open up immediately upon ingesting it.
The “syrup” is very spicy, so drink a shot of it really fast. My 4 year old drank it without complaints about its taste. His fairly bad,d ry cough went away in 2 days! My husband did complain about the taste, but he also said that it worked very well as a cough remedy. To make the “syrup” more effective, you can add some Mullein drops . This link will take you to my Amazon store. Supporting this store is supporting my work on this blog. Thank you! Mullein is a known herbal cough remedy and this way you can take both cough remedies at once. Mullein tincture is black, so it will color your syrup, but won’t affect its taste.
