It didn’t surprise me at all when I recently read that the most effective cough syrup could not be bought in your nearest drugstore. Rather, it’s the simple yet extremely effective tonic of lemon and honey that has always been a staple in my house during times of illness. Even as a married woman, the first thing my mom always asked if I’m under the weather is, “Did you do the lemon with the honey?” Usually I have, but if not, I’m always grateful for the reminder.
Anytime a sore throat or cough strikes this is definitely my highly recommended and research-proven, drink of choice!
- juice of 1 large lemon
- 1-2 tbs of honey
- splash of hot H20
*Make sure to sip, not gulp, this sweet and tart, restorative concoction!
