THANK YOU!!!!! it works.. I did NOT cut it with the water... I tasted it 1st found the flavor to be fine( not offensive to me) so I did leave out the water...thinking the honey could better coat my throat
I got over a bad cold and was left with that same spasm cough. 3 Week later I still have it. I say 2 words and need to cough. Over the counter drops don't help for this kind because it goes deep into your lungs. I tried this recipe by taking 3 TBS twice a day. This really works! It feels like its working to calm the spasms but also heal the tissues. Just keep taking it until your completely better. Many thanks for posting!
Have to say this was really gross! But did the trick in the short term I must say. Made it for my husband and it was worth twenty stars for entertainment value, he took it after a few minues of looking dubiously at it and his face was priceless! Later he would only take it again if I took it with him for support, what a baby!
Made this recipe for my daughter who had a bad cough for a couple of weeks. Gone in 2 days. Got the same cough myself, and kept waking up my husband at night with my coughing. Made another batch, slept through the night (both of us.) My oldest daughter is in medical school, and she caught a cold and a terrible cough. She's come by twice to pick up her "prescription." She likes it because it doesn't make her drowsy or anxious, and it works well.
My son has allergies with coughing, sore throat, sneezing, etc. He hates taking cough medicine, but finally agreed to try this. He loved how fast his sore throat was gone, and it really helped his cough, too. Didn't do much for the sneezing, but you can't have everything! Thanks.
Definitely worth giving a shot. Never having been impressed with OTC cough remedies, especially for children, I've used this on my 5 and 7 year-olds. My son's niggling hay fever cough woke him up last night...one dose of this and he was out for the night. Works like a charm and no one complained about the taste. Thanks, Daphne, for sharing!
This tastes so much better than any OTC cough medicines or cough syrups I have tried! In fact, I kinda like the taste. I could feel a burning sensation all the way down. Have made this several times already. Sometimes I only use 1 tablespoon of water and add 1 tablespoon of vodka. I've shared this remedy with friend, they like it too!!
I can't begin to tell you how happy I am with this remedy. It really works! I've noticed a significant improvement in my cough just today. The taste, well, it's kind of like hot, very sweet salad dressing (lol!), but it's not so horrible. Every time I've started coughing, I've taken one teaspoonful as directed. It does the job, and does it well. Thanks for posting this!
This stuff is excellent! I did not think the taste was all bad either. If you have a cough, please try this, It works!! Thank you so much for sarhing the recipe. I had cayenne pepper capsules, and one capsule was 1/4 tsp. I also had ginger capsules too, and 1 capsule is 1/4 teaspoon.
Made it for my husband after we ran out of cough syrup! He had an awful, persistent cough but his receipe REALLY helped soothe his throat and calm the coughing. Thank you for this recipe. May add minced garlic next time.
