With the arrival of the cold winter temperatures, the common cold and flu season inevitably follows. If you or your little one were unlucky enough to fall prey to these annoying ailments, you’ve come to the right place.
Most conventional cough syrups taste bad and most of the time they don’t work anyway. So last time my 6-year old came down with a cold, I headed to the internet to find a better and healthier solution to the problem, and since I already had all the ingredients at home, I decided to give it a try.
We were amazed at how well it worked! And the best part is that it tastes so good that she kept asking for more.
– 4 tbsp hot water
– 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
– 2 tbsp honey
– 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
– 1/2 tsp ground ginger
– 1/2 tsp cinnamon
You can also add a few drops of oregano oil into the syrup when fighting off something pretty bad. Oregano oil is an incredible natural antibiotic.
Mix all the ingredients until you get a homogenous mixture and store it in a jar. Take as often as needed (usually 1 tbsp). Feel better soon!
So the next time you or your little one have a common cold.. don’t head straight to the drug store for cough syrup. This natural and delicious remedy can be found in your kitchen.
Note: The medical profession advises against giving honey to children under 12 months of age.
