We all become more prone to cough during change of season, and sometimes it can become painful if chronic. You have to take antibiotics to cure your cough, which have their own side effects. But this natural home remedy can give you relief from coughs without causing any damage to your body.
Check out this all natural cough drop that not only tastes great and is good for you, but contains ingredients which are known to boost immune function and speed up recovery time.
100ml of coconut oil
100g raw organic honey
Pinch of ceylon cinnamon
Whip the coconut oil until it is nice and frothy.
Slowly incorporate honey to form a full and thick paste.
Add your cinnamon (feel free to use your own tastes as a guide, I personally prefer 1/2 teaspoon for an added kick).
Pour the mixture into empty ice cube trays and put them in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Store them in a glass mason jar in the fridge for up to 2 months.
Don’t forget you can use these daily as a preventative measure!
Ingredient health benefits:
The lauric acid content in coconut oil kills off bad bacteria, fungi, and viruses helping to stave off future infections.
Similar to coconut oil, raw organic honey has powerful antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-fungal properties which, aside from its soothing texture, can help you fight colds even before they fight you!
Raw organic honey can also cleanse your liver, promote intestinal health, and reduce inflammation in the respiratory system which will help you breathe better when suffering with a cold.
Coconut oil can actively reduce blood pressure, prevent high cholesterol levels, and even encourage the absorption of minerals into our bones.
I really could go on about all the great ways using this cough lozenge can benefit your overall health, but I won’t.
