Homemade cough medicine

Homemade cough medicine is easy-peasy to make, and minus all the additives that pharmacy cough medicine has.

Its also very effective and safe for children over the age of 18 months.

Heres the Recipe:

Take one onion and cut in half. Its best to use an organic onion as sadly conventional onions are smothered in sprays. Place the 2 halves face down in a dish. Pour honey over the top of the onions, about 3-4 Tbsps onto each one. Then pour 1 tsp (or 1/2 a tsp depending on taste) of Apple Cider Vinegar over each onion half.

Cover the onions with a cover that does not touch them, for example a large pudding bowl.

Leave overnight. In the morning remove the onions, and give them a little squeeze to remove any excess onion juice.

The liquid you have left is your cough mixture. Mix it around and pour into a more suitable container, unless the dish works for you.

Take 1 tsp every couple of hours for a cough. This is also great to build up immunity at the beginning of winter, and  for colds and flus.
