DIY Natural Cough Syrup

This year our babes have been so sick!  It has been one bug after the next, one cold after the next with a week in between.  The babies aren't quite old enough for cough syrup nor do I like the idea of giving them medicine for every little thing.  So my mom remembers that her mom used to give her homemade cough syrup and that it worked. So I thought I would give it a try



It is so simple!
half cup of honey
half cup hot water
3 tablespoons lemon juice

I give it to them before nap time and bed time.  And since it is something you can not take too much of, they get it when ever they are coughing a lot.

Once I started using it I noticed a big different and I'm just saying... this cold didn't last as long as the rest of them.  I wasn't sure it would work at first, but it really does.  I may even try this for Will and I when we get coughs.

Try it!

What home remedies do you use?

  1. What about storing it? I'm assuming it should be refrigerated.
