Last week I had a very persistent cough. I didn’t have a cold, but there was some construction going on in the building I work in. Surely there were things being conjured up from the depths of the walls, floors, and ceilings. So I decided to modify one of my grandmother’s cough remedies to sooth my cough.
iBourgie’s Natural Cough Remedy
1 tablespoon of honey (preferably local to your area)
1 tablespoon of lemon juice or the juice of half a lemon
1 tablepoon of Bragg’s apple cider vinegar
a pinch of cayenne pepper
1/2 clove of minced garlic (optional)
This remedy seemed to work instantly. You make take as needed. You may store it in the fridge or in a cool place. Make it in small batches and if you have any left over, mix it in with a glass of water and drink it down. Because of the honey, don’t give to children under the age of 1. My grandmother used it with garlic. I have used it with and without garlic and achieved satisfactory results both ways.
