Here’s Exactly How To Make Your Own Natural Cough Syrup
Stuck at home with a terrible cough that won’t quit? Here’s how to whip up your own soothing cough syrup…
Why It Works
1/ Thyme leaves pack a potent punch of cough-calming compounds that work to relax tracheal and ileal muscles and reduce inflammation.
2/ Black pepper stimulates circulation and mucus flow, so this really helps if you’re struggling with a wet cough.
3/ Honey on its own is a great natural cough reliever. It’s a natural anti-bacterial and it can soothe a sore throat.
4/ Drinking a lot of liquids can be helpful for a cough. Fluids help thin out the mucus in postnasal drip and keep the membranes moist, which can help to reduce the need to cough. So stay hydrated!
You can also try this classic cure at bedtime: a shot of bourbon mixed with honey and a little hot water.
