    Daphne2002's Note:

    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!

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

      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.

      After four hours of relentless and sleepless night hacking, despite cold medicine and a quarter sleeping pill, I was about to take my husband to the hospital. At 2am I mixed this up (with all fresh ingredients and quality honey) and he was just delirious enough to accept my, "witch medicine." 10 minutes, and no coughing later, he feel gently asleep to mumbles of, "your spicy honey fixed me...." Slept through the night soundly and he even asked to bottle up a "potion" and take it to work the next morning. Awesome. (I also skipped the water, added extra apple cider vinegar and honey, used minced ginger, and blended it all with an electric wand. Might add a clove of garlic next time. Medicine is not sup. to taste good.)

      I was sceptical about trying this, but really hating to go to the doctor and being desperate for some medicine, I decided to give it a try. This cough medicine is amazing! Every time I coughed, I would take a tablespoon of the medicine, and within 3 days, the cough was gone. Later, I made some for my aunt who was sick. Same results...within a few days the cough was gone. Thanks for posting a great recipe and saving me mega bucks that I would have spent for medicine at the pharmacy!
