Did you know your kitchen is a pharmacy? This Kitchen Remedy Cough Syrup is made out of natural ingredients. Before you head to the drug store give this a try. IT WORKS!!
I am really bad when it comes to taking cough syrup. I don’t like the taste and the way it makes me feel. Most of the time it doesn’t work anyway. So last time my husband came down with a cold, I headed to the internet to find a better and healthier solution to the problem.
We all know there are loads of foods and spices that are jammed packed with healing properties. I would much rather fight a cough and cold with food than medication. So I did some searching and reading to find a better way to win the fight…and yes it actually does exist.
During my search I came across this recipe and since I had all the ingredients in the house, decided to give it a try. I did adapt it a bit and added one more ingredient. We were amazed at how well it worked. The best part is that is tastes good …. and there are no side effects (except feeling better of course).
Simple ingredients that have healing properties really do work, so who needs a pharmacy when you have food and spices. Apple cider vinegar, honey, cinnamon, ginger, cayenne pepper…there you have all the things you need to get rid of that nasty cough.
There is not a shortage of articles written on this subject. 10 Easy Natural Ways to Conquer the Common Cold is a great one to read. It lists all the healing powers of apple cider vinegar, honey and ginger.
The wonderful properties of cinnamon such as warming, pain relief and anti-bacterial can be found here. Congestion, fever and sore throats can all be helped with cayenne pepper like stated in this article.
This cough syrup is our “go to” remedy hands down. It mixes up quick and easy. I just put it in a jar and it lasts a long time. You can take it as often as needed so you don’t have to worry about overdosing. If you are going to make it for kids you might want to cut back on the cayenne, they might find it too spicy. FYI the medical profession advises against giving honey to children under 12 months of age.
So next time you have a cough…don’t head to the drug store for cough syrup….Kitchen Remedy Cough Syrup can be found in your kitchen pharmacy!!
