A Simply Heavenly Homemade cough Syrup....

I found this on-line and I loved it!!!  Children today are getting so many chemicals put into their bodies to make them “well”  and the result is that so many of them have more allergies then we ever experienced growing up.  That is why I liked Mrs Happy Homemaker’s  site.  So here is her recipe for a Simply Heavenly Grandma’s cough syrup:

Grandma’s Homemade Cough Syrup

So, I’ve done a few posts on natural cold remedies recently.  Homemade vapor rub and shower soothers. You should be able to tell now that this time of the year is the worst on my family’s sinuses.
In any cold fighting arsenal, you need something to treat that cough.  So, I wanted to share with you my Great Grandma’s homemade cough syrup.  She used it on all of her kids, grand-kids, and on me…and now I make it myself.  It’s so-so-so simple with just 3 all-natural cough busting ingredients.
Olive Oil: Making a homemade cough syrup using olive oil will help you combat your cough as well as reduce reduce inflammation in the throat.
Honey:  Honey helps with coughs, particularly buckwheat honey. In a study of 110 children, a single dose of buckwheat honey was just as effective as a single dose of dextromethorphan in relieving nocturnal cough and allowing proper sleep. You can use any type of honey you have on hand though.
Lemon: Because everyone knows that lemon & honey is the one of the best throat soother combinations.

Grandma's Homemade Cough Syrup
Yield: About 1 cup
·        3/4 cup raw organic honey
·        1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
·        3 lemons - juiced
Add all ingredients to a small pot over medium heat until steaming. Remove from the heat & let it cool. Place it into a mason jar or other container with a tight fitting lid. Store it in the fridge for 3 months, or on the counter top for 1.5 months.
Use by the teaspoon or tablespoon, as needed.
Stir & warm before using
Use as soon as you feel a cold coming on.
Also great for allergies

I hope that you try this and let me know what you think.  Have a Simply Heavenly day!!!


I have a few home made cough syrups but this one sounds great!

I took this yesterday and it really helped my cough and the lemon helped to clear the mucus. I am feeling much better today. I hope you have a great evening!!!:):)

I have heard about this, but I never try this out. Are you so sure about this.??

It is all natural and it works. If you have a serious problem like pneumonia or bronchitis I would certainly consult a physician. But for a regular cold this worked fine for me. Have a Simply Heavenly day!!! :):)
