Honey Thyme Cough Syrup Recipe
A cold or sore throat can strike at any moment and many over-the-counter medicines aren’t always as effective as we believe. Earthshore Herbal Remedies is a natural remedies shop dedicated to helping you feel your best self, inside and out. We found a fantastic natural cough syrup recipe from Hello Glow and just had to share it with our customers!
This recipe is for a honey thyme cough syrup mixture that will quickly soothe your irritated throat without the extra unwanted side-effects of harsh drug store medications.
Thyme contains thymol, which is a powerful antimicrobial that’s fantastic for respiratory and bronchial infections. Honey is also a great throat soother which can help to calm anything from a small tickle to a full blown coughing fit. We definitely recommend giving this recipe a shot, but due to the honey it should not be given to children under 1 year of age.
All of these ingredients can be found right here at EarthshoreHerbalRemedies.com, so be sure to visit our natural remedies shop today!
