Cough Syrup

Homemade cough syrup is simple yet effective remedy that has anti-viral and immune boosting properties. It helps support bronchial health all year long.

Generally the sweetener preserves the mixture, extending the shelf-life, while giving the “medicine” a coating to help it go down smoothly while also soothing the throat.


  • Relaxing bronchial spasms
  • Support Immune system
  • Soothes cough, cold and flue
  • Works against bacterial and viral infections


Making an herbal syrup is relatively easy once you decide the herb you want to use. Simply mix the herbal extract or infusion with enough raw honey to make thick medicinal syrup.

Raw honey has its own antiviral properties and it also acts as a preservative to keep your syrup from spoiling quickly. Elderberries are an excellent choice as they are loaded with antioxidants, Vitamin C and immune supporting minerals. They are also delicious which make them perfect for kids. You can store the syrup in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.


To support immune function throughout cold and flu season children are usually given ½ teaspoon per day, while adults can take about 1½ teaspoons. During illness, the frequency of administration increases to every 2-3 hours until the symptoms resolve.
