In any cold fighting arsenal, you need something to treat that cough. So, I wanted to share with you my Great Grandma’s homemade cough syrup. She used it on all of her kids, grand-kids, and on me…and now I make it myself. It’s so-so-so simple with just 3 all-natural cough busting ingredients.
Olive Oil: Making a homemade cough syrup using olive oil will help you combat your cough as well as reduce reduce inflammation in the throat.
Honey: Honey helps with coughs, particularly buckwheat honey. In a study of 110 children, a single dose of buckwheat honey was just as effective as a single dose of dextromethorphan in relieving nocturnal cough and allowing proper sleep. You can use any type of honey you have on hand though.
Lemon: Because everyone knows that lemon & honey is the one of the best throat soother combinations.
