Natural Cough Syrup

I listed this recipe on my Recipe Roll Call a few months back, but I finally was feeling sick enough to try Natural Cough Syrup. My sinus cold turned into a sore throat and some coughing. It's been a long week at our house!

Natural Cough Syrup
recipe adapted from Intentionally Katie

1/4 t. red pepper flakes
1 T. apple cider vinegar
1 T. honey
2 T. water

Combine. 1 teaspoon reduces coughing for quite a while. Store in the frig.

The verdict?
It is a little hard to swallow down, although I have problems getting "regular" liquid medicines down. Liquid Nyquil when I was a child just about made me freak out, but this was pretty easy compared to that. It did work, reducing some of the coughing and I felt better about trying this mixture than other commercial medicines because I didn't have to worry about drug interactions and keeping me up at night. It did work for me, but I was unable to talk my husband into trying it :(
