    Simple Homemade Cough Syrup Recipe

    Disclaimer: Before I talk about this home remedy, I want to add a disclaimer. This cough syrup will NOT fix just any cough. If you have a chronic cough such as from asthma or some other disease, it won't work. Rather, this remedy is for people with a mild cough such as from allergies.

    I highly recommend you discuss this home remedy with your doctor before trying it. As much as we all want to avoid the unnatural ingredients in store-bought cough syrups, we should always be careful when it comes to our health. Also, do NOT give this remedy to a child under 2 years of age.

    Now that that's out of the way, on to the cough syrup. This recipe has been around for ages, but Chef Mama Rosa does a great job of explaining how to make it in the video below. I'll summarize the steps for you.

    Step 1 – Gather the ingredients. All you need is 1/2 cup of raw honey, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, a 4-ounce bottle, and a dropper.

    Step 2 – Slice and juice your lemons, then strain the juice to remove the pulp. Of course, you can just buy lemon juice at the store, but I prefer fresh lemon juice.

    Step 3 – Add two tablespoons of lemon juice to the honey and stir it until it's thoroughly mixed.

    Step 4 – Use a funnel to pour the syrup into the 4-ounce bottle.

    And now you're done! To treat a cough, use the dropper to administer one teaspoon (5 ml) every two hours. When you're not using it, keep it in the refrigerator. Watch the video below for more details.
