Today’s post comes from Jamie, our newest contributor. You can find her at Aspiring Natural Mommy.
This time of year has my family a little crazy. Between the end of the year rush with schooling, dance recitals (and the required rehearsals for 5 different dance classes), and the fact that both of my children became ill as soon as the dance rush was over, Mommy is a little frazzled!
I love that this cough syrup is super fast-acting, and so easy to make. In fact, you probably already have all of the ingredients in your kitchen.
Kid-Approved Homemade Cough Syrup
- 1 tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
- 2 tbsp. Water
- 2 tbsp. Raw Honey
- 1/4 tsp. Cayenne Pepper (You can use 1/8 tsp. for children, however, my children love Cayenne Pepper so I use more.)
Pour all ingredients into a jar with a lid and shake to mix well. Don’t forget to label it so you know what’s in there!
Give 1 tablespoon to children for cough every three hours. For adults, give 2 tablespoons. Always shake to mix before administering. Will keep in fridge for up to 3 weeks.
