      I had seen this on Pinterest, also, so one night when my coughing was keeping me up I mixed some of this up, took a spoonful, and my coughing stopped right then and there. Ever since then, I keep some of this made up. I love that it's natural, without extra ingredients and dyes my body doesn't need. It doesn't taste as good as the OTC cough meds but it's sure a heck of a lot cheaper. Thanks for publishing this here, Cookworm.

      My DH has a bad cold and a cough, so I went looking for a home remedy and this really helped his cough. Frankly I was surprised, but relief was almost immediate. I did add an extra T. of honey just to disguise the cayenne. Thanks for posting!
