Homemade cough mixture


I am forever lasting coughing.

As soon as one person gets the flu at work or at home, everyone and I mean everyone gets it and it goes from one person to the next and somehow I always land up with the cough that never seems to want to go away.

I kept hearing and seeing facebook posts about homemade remedies and well I thought I have to give it a try and it works.

I force fed this to my mom who could not stand the lemon taste but she definitely agreed with me that this homemade recipe does work.



1½ cups x honey

½ cup x extra virgin olive oil

1-5  lemons, juiced (the more the better)


Add honey, olive oil and lemon juice to a small pot.

Stir and shake till everything is well combined.

Heat over medium

Allow to come to a boil and boil for about 10 – 15 minutes.

Remove from heat and let cool.

Place into a jar with a lid.

Take 1 tablespoon as required.

The longer it stands the better.
