DIY Cough Syrup / by john cheng

Since everyone around me has either been sick, getting sick or sick for the second time around, here is a life hack for you. Make your own cough syrup at home if your just not that into drugging yourself up with over the counter medication.

Lifestyle blog The Creek Line House has a great recipe that promises to deliver relief to the minor sore throats and coughs the winter season brings. The ingredients are simple:

  • 1 tablespoon buckwheat or good local honey, which soothes throats and has antibacterial properties
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar, which also has antibacterial properties and can help clear your sinuses
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, which has natural pain relievers
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, has anti-inflammatory properties and helps relieve congestion

Check out The Creek Line House's post below for the full recipe and other details.
