Here is a DIY recipe for a natural cough medicine. Honey has some great health benefits and it has been proven to work better for coughs than chemical cough medicines. Honey has less sugar than some cough medicines and it is more gentile to the stomach. Honey has antibacterial properties and it has been proven to work against dozens of different bacteria. I like this, because my stomach does not like chemical cough medicines. Essential oils have also a lot of health benefits.
Mix well together with a table-spoon of honey:
- 1 drop of doTerra’s lemon oil (if you use some other brand make sure that you can use it internally)
- 1 drop of doTerra’s frankincense oil
- 1 drop of doTerra’s peppermint oil
- 1 drop of doTerra’s lavender oil
You can mix the honey with tea or hot water.
