I am sure you have some sort of cough medicine in your medicine cabinet right? Most of us, at the first sign of a cold take some sort of chemical and sugar filled medicine, but why when you could make something that will do more than mask the problems right in your own kitchen?
Coughing is something the body needs to do to clear the large passages from secretions, irritants, microbes, and foreign particles. Without the cough, our bodies would become the victims of a large number of airborne diseases. But, they are annoying and can even become painful.
Over the counter lozenges contain chemicals that reduce congestion and can have a horrible effect on heart rate.
Dextromethorphan, pseudoephedrine hydrochloride, and ephedrine might mask the cough, but at what cost to your body?
Here is something that will actually do something good for your body, as well as treating the symptoms of your cough.
50ml of coconut oil
50mg raw organic honey
Pinch of Ceylon cinnamon
Whip the coconut oil until it is frothy, slowly incorporate the honey to form a thick paste. Add the cinnamon, and pour the mixture into an ice cube tray. Put the tray into the freezer for 30 minutes, store them in a glass mason jar in the fridge for up to 2 months. Use daily!
