I’m surprised it’s happened already with just 7 days of school under our belt, but here we are. My little boy already has his first cold of the school year. And I’m feeling a tickle in my throat….so I’m sure my 10 days of sniffles and coughs isn’t far behind.
I’ve tried hot lemon tea with cayenne pepper before but I’m sure I waited too long and my cold was already making itself at home. Hopefully I’ll get to this one soon enough and won’t have to suffer! Check out Good Food Matters for a homemade cough syrup recipe. I’m putting it to the test tonight and will let you know how it works for us.
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
- 1/4teaspoon ginger
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 tablespoons honey
Dissolve cayenne and ginger in cider vinegar and water. Add honey and shake well. Take 1 Tablespoon as needed for cough. Note: this doesn’t dissolve perfectly. Always shake well before using.
