DIY Monday: Homemade Cough Syrup

Cough Syrup

Cold & Flu season is epic this year. It seems as if everyone I know, including myself have been battling with some sort of illness this season. Which brings me to this post “Homemade Cough Syrup”. Now back in the day good ole’ grandma would serve us up a concoction that consist of some type of whiskey. Yeah I said it whiskey. Believe you me it put us right on to sleep. And for a few hours I might add. LOL. Anywho, this recipe is just as great, All-Naturale, 3 ingredients & alcohol-free. So make up a batch today. You’ll thank me later!

Here’s What You Need:

1½ cups organic raw honey
½ cup organic extra virgin olive oil
1-5 organic lemons, juiced (the more the better)

Instructions:

Add honey, olive oil and lemon juice to a small pot. Stir to combine ingredients.
Heat over medium heat just until steaming, continue stirring.
Remove from heat and let cool.
Place into a mason jar with a lid.
Store in the refrigerator.
Take 1-2 tablespoons as needed or simply add some to a cup of hot tea.
