Favorite Cold/Cough Remedy

It's sore throat, coughing season. I have one daughter that has serious coughing issues and frankly I get sick of pouring disgusting tasting cough syrups down her throat that may or may not work. Recently we tried this home remedy and she found such relief from it that we stopped using the cough medicine at night. When my other kids get the sore throat and cough they ask for this drink because it truly soothes their throat and calms the coughing fits.

Plus it doesn't make them gag and it is all natural. They actually enjoy this Honey Lemon Water. We went through a whole thing of honey just on this drink already -- which is why honey should ALWAYS be in your food storage in the winter.

3 ingredients.

1 TB Lemon Juice

1 TB Honey 
1 Cup hot water.

Stir lemon and honey into hot water.
Sip slowly.

Gargling warm water with salt. Salt water has been an effective remedy for sore throat as well as coughing. It eases the throat of its inflammation and cleans it as well.
