Do you get a nagging cough that doesn't ever seem to go away? Just taking cold medicine or a syrup that contains chemicals and additives is not always the best option. There are an assortment of natural methods that are a better option like a homemade cough syrup.


Making a homemade cough syrup is super simple to do. The best thing is, the ingredients you need are easy to get and may already be in your kitchen. Honey is the main ingredient you need. Organic is better for you, but you can use what you have. You can order organic honey on Amazon.

A small glass jar like a mason jar with a lid is all will you need as a container for a homemade cough syrup. Simply mix the ingredients together to make an effective cough syrup. Water is also an ingredient, but you can use the juice of a lemon instead. Take as needed up to 3 to 5 teaspoons a day.
