Healthy Cough Syrup Recipe

It is nearing the end of winter, and many people are getting hit with the winter colds or flu this time of year. We don’t very often get a cough that goes through our house, but when it does it can keep the whole family awake at night with just one person coughing constantly.

Store bought cough syrup tastes terrible (unless it is loaded with fake chemical flavors), and who knows what is really in it!

We opt instead to make our own cough syrup with ingredients that we know are beneficial and healthy.

Last time I made it I was out of coconut oil, but the rest of the ingredients still soothed the cough and helped my son sleep without hacking all night.
