Natural Cough Syrup

I’m always looking for better, natural ways to help the people around me get better if they are sick. Especially my family. It breaks my heart to hear a little one coughing all night long.

I recently was told about these two fantastic natural cough syrups that use essential oils honey and water. That’s it!

Naturally, I had to share this with you as well.

For A Dry Cough

2 drops eucalyptus essential oil
2 drops lemon essential oil
2 tbsp honey

Mix together then put a teaspoon of mixture in warm water and sip slowly.

For A Mucus Cough

Mix together:

2 drops eucalyptus essential oil
1 drop thyme essential oil
1 drop tea tree (melaleuca) essential oil

Add 1 drop of the oil mixture to 1 tbsp honey, then add the honey mixture in warm water and sip slowly.

TIP: You can make a double or triple batch and keep it on hand for those middle of the night emergencies or just to have around.

I get all of my high quality essential oils (now) through Young Living.
