When the weather dramatically changes, colds or coughs peak up. Three weeks ago, our youngest son, Tank, came home coughing. He said, “Aahhhh Mom, no worries; it’s just a cough from my allergies. I’ve got it under control.”
Last night, at midnight, I got tired of listening to Tank cough, nonstop. I got out of bed and went into the kitchen, pulled out the honey (locally grown of course), and lightly heated two tablespoons full. Then I went into his bedroom, and told him he had better swallow this honey. The honey will coat his throat and stop his coughing. This will have to do until I get up in the morning, and make some fresh homemade cough syrup.
Just 2 tablespoons of heated honey stopped his coughing, he slept through the night……and so did I.
This morning I made two separate cough syrups, one without alcohol and another with. When our son comes home from work in the early morning hours he will take “Best Cough Syrup Ever” before going to bed to help with his terrible cough.
I made both recipes, and I highly recommended using either one for dealing with continuous cough, and sore throat.
Both are very easy to make as long as you have all the ingredients at home.
I’ve tasted both of these cough syrups and both taste really good. I have no hesitation using either one to take care of a cough or a sore throat.
