Homemade Natural Cough Syurp

I just found this recipe and it sounded good however because I don't have a cough and this recipe is newly discovered I can not comment on it's effectiveness. I decided to post it because we are approaching the cold & flu season and when one is living on an itty-bitty, teeny-tiny, micro budget buying store bought cough syrup hurts.  The link below will lead you to the original website:

Choosing Voluntary Simplicity

This recipe comes from a  book titled:  Herbally Yours by Penny C. Royal.


1 tablespoon cider vinegar

2 tablespoons water

1 tablespoon honey

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Mix all the ingredients together and store in the refrigerator. The book says to take one teaspoon of the syrup at intervals as needed. (We have always adjusted the dosage according to the age of the person and the severity of the cough. And of course, because of the sharpness of the vinegar, ground ginger, and cayenne pepper, and because there is honey involved, this would not be a cough syrup for very young children.)

testimony from Voluntary Simplicity:I like that this cough syrup contains only “food” ingredients, but the best thing about it is that it WORKS.
