Homemade Natural Cough Drops To Soothe Your Throat

 
When your nose is blocked and the cough sets in, most people are usually at their wits' end. You swallow medicine, gurgle specific solutions, rub ointments into your skin, and are willing to try anything that TV ads claim to be effective. But with this little guide, you won't need to do any of that ever again because these cough drops contain all the important ingredients to stop that cold in its tracks!

You'll Need:

  • ⅓ cup water
  • 1¼ cups sugar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • ½ tsp ginger
  • lemon juice
  • powdered sugar
  • parchment paper

Here's How:

1. Make sure to have all your ingredients on hand and ready to go before you start, because the process moves fast. First add the water and sugar to a saucepan over medium heat, bring to a boil, and let simmer for a few minutes.

2. Add the honey, ground cloves, ginger, and dash of lemon juice to the saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil and let cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sugar caramelizes and the mixture thickens slightly.

3. Remove the saucepan from the heat, let it cool, and then drizzle the sticky mixture in small blobs on a sheet of parchment paper.

4. Once the blobs have hardened and cooled, sprinkle powdered sugar on top and store the homemade cough drops in a bowl or container.

The best thing about these throat lozenges is that completely natural, so you can be 100% certain of what's in them, and that's a comforting thought when you're sick and your body isn't at full strength! If you're feeling the need for even more cough relief, check out our Homemade Honey Wrap.
