Hey pixels, I have a cold these days…. that’s the reason I haven’t post in a few days… I’m starting to feel better now but I’m still coughing.
(Note: photos are from the first time I did this syrup; I apologise for not having more recent ones, my happy pixels).
Through the years and through my colds I’ve tried a lot of diferent cough syrups, but none of them has worked well on me: when I’ve finished all the syrup I’m usually still coughing.
But one day, last year, someone told me about this natural syrup. I tried it, and surprise, it works!!! I couldn’t believe it.
This DIY syrup has some advantatges too: it works, is cheap, is based on natural ingredients and you can do it at home in less than 30′ using ingredients you always have in your pantry.
You should keep the syrup in a glass jar or bottle, and into the fridge. It last about 3-4 days.
The best way to take it is: 2-3 times a day fill a small glass and heat it about 30-50” in the microwave; it’s more effective if you drink it warm. And its flavour is great. Did I mention this yet? Another advantatge over the chemical ones: most of them taste horrible…
- 15-20 tablespoons honey
- 500ml water
- 2 tablespoons fresh thyme
- the juice of 1/2 lemon
Boil the water and the thyme as you were making an infusion (for 10-15′)
Remove thyme; allow to cool and then, add honey and lemon. Stirr and transfer to a glass container or bottle. Keep in the fridge.
And voilà, it’s done!!! That easy!!
