I will never buy cough medicine again.. I wish I had known this before!
Suffering from throat irritation and coughing can be annoying and frustrating, even if you don't feel particularly sick.
Fortunately, a sore throat can be cured with pills and syrup that help relieve the pain or irritation.
These medications do help, but they are expensive and sometimes contain ingredients that you don't know what they are, or that you don't want to take.
So why not prepare the medicine yourself?
Surprisingly it is extremely easy, completely natural, and equally effective.
Keep this natural remedy at home, or you can even share it to friends and family. I would definitely be happy if someone would give me these tablets before. Especially now that winter is over the corner.
- 2.25 cups sugar (or a little less)
- 1 cup of water
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
How to prepare:
Mix the sugar, water and lemon juice in a small pot
Add honey (which has anti-inflammatory properties) and ginger (which strengthens the immune system)
Grind the cloves (which contains antioxidants) and mix well
Boil the liquid for about 20 minutes over medium heat
Once ready, using a spoon, gently drip the liquid into small pieces over a baking sheet
Sprinkle some powdered sugar on top to prevent sticking
Let the tablets cool down, and that's all! You have natural anti-cough tablets.
