It is a remedy that has been used for years back. Here is how to prepare this remedy and ease the annoying cough that follows you during cold season.
Cough Syrup Recipe
- 1/4 cup Ginger Root (fresh grated or dried)
- 1/4 cup Marshmallow Root
- 1/4 cup Chamomile Flowers
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon Cinnamon
- 1 cup honey
- 250 ml of filtered water
Take a medium sized saucepan and pour water in it. Add dried herbs to water and boil them accordingly. Reduce heat so the mix simmers. Remove from heat once half the liquid evaporates.
Strain thorough a cloth or mesh strainer so you don’t leave any herbs in the liquid.
With the liquid still lukewarm, add lemon juice and honey. Stir well. Pour the mix in air sealed container and keep in refrigerator for two months.
Eat one tablespoon of the syrup three times a day. It is also beneficial for children; you must take no more than one teaspoon per day.
Tip: To cure dry cough, add one teaspoon of dried mint leaves in the syrup.
