Recipe by Daphne2002

This is a home remedy for that horrible cough that you just can't get rid of, and best of all: you probably already have all of the ingredients!

I've used variations of this a lot. I always add fresh minced or crushed garlic as well. Garlic is a natural antibiotic and anti viral. I also sometimes add dry mustard or horseradish. I never add water becauce when the honey is thick, it coats your throat and helps even more.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix ingredients.
  2. Take by the teaspoon as often as needed for cough.
  3. Do not give to infants under 12 months due to the honey (though I doubt you could get them to take it anyway!).
