Making simple throat and cough medicines at home now!
Using herbs to make simple cough medicines at home is easy.
Here are a couple of ridiculously simple old home recipes that you can use today!
1. Garlic as the base in liquids that you either marinate or juice to have in the fridge.
Simply take your peeled garlic ( 20 cloves) and marinate in in some apple cider vinegar ( 1 cup) or juice the garlic and then add the vinegar. Pop this in the fridge and mix in with a little honey and drink for sore throats and coughs.
2. Fresh herbs from the garden such as thyme and sage can be used in a similar way. Take a glass jar and fill with the fresh herb. Top up with your apple cider vinegar and marinate in the fridge for a week. Strain the liquid off and drink it again with a little honey for sore throats and coughs.
These are two really simple recipes that anyone can make.
The general rule of thumb is that you use 1 teaspoon of the liquid to 1/3 teaspoon of honey. Mix that in with 10ml of hot water and theres your medicine. You can always per mix it and have ready in the kitchen for when needed.
