    I've made this 2 times so far this winter. We've been so sick with colds - sore throats, coughs etc. My DH took it to work and said it works great for his cough. The sore throat works for about 1/2 hour, but there's no chemicals in there, so you can take as much as you want. I have to order more glycerin now. This is going into my book#234006. Thanks, Rita. Your health recipes are always awesome! :)
