Natural Cough Syrup

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by kellcinn

I found this recipe for cough syrup posted by Bonnie K. McMillen, R.N, B.S.N., College Health Nurse, University of Pittsburgh at Bradford. It certainly can't hurt and reviews seem to confirm it works. Ingredients are all common and most likely in the cupboard. **This is not recommended for young children, as it is too strong in taste and honey is not safe for children under one year unless pasteurized or boiled for 5 minutes.
