We all know the trouble that is caused by cold and flu season. Somehow every year sickness sweeps through our work, schools, and communities. It can seem an impossible feat to avoid the bug as it goes around, and we normally just end up catching it when it’s our turn and treating it with generic over the counter cold/flu medicines until it runs its course.

While they may do the trick to get us over the seasonal illness, many of these medicines contain ingredients and chemicals that can be ultimately harmful to our body. (1) Beyond that, wouldn’t you rather avoid getting sick altogether this next flu season?

With this homemade, completely natural remedy, you can curb this season’s cold and flu symptoms and keep your body clear of harsh, unwanted chemical components.

Homemade Natural Cough Drops

Whether you are feeling the onset of a small cold in your throat or are just taking ample precautions while bugs are being passed around your friends and family, these incredible, all-natural cough drops will help you combat the spreading sickness. They are easy to make yourself – not to mention very pleasant to the taste – and they are just what you need to get ahead of the game. They are made with three simple yet powerful ingredients, several or all of which you may already have at home:

Raw Honey 

Raw honey has proven antibacterial characteristics and is known to be soothing to sore throats. It is known to relieve coughs and combat respiratory inflammation. (1)

Coconut Oil 

Coconut Oil is rich in a substance called lauric acid, which is known to kill harmful bacteria, fungi, and viruses when ingested. (2)

Cinnamon

In addition to being spicy and delicious, studies have shown that cinnamon may help reduce inflammation, have antioxidant properties, and also fight bacteria. (3)

DIY Cough Drops Recipe Instructions

Add about 100 mL (about 7 tablespoons) of the coconut oil into a bowl and whip thoroughly with a whisk until frothy and light. Once the consistency is right, begin gradually whipping in about 100 grams (7 tablespoons) of the raw honey, whisking constantly until the mixture has turned into a thick paste. Season with cinnamon to your personal taste preference, and mix once more to fully integrate the final ingredient. You should end up with an evenly mixed, thick, warm colored mixture.

Shallowly fill the bottoms of multiple ice cube trays, or line a cookie sheet with wax paper and dole out quarter sized doses of the paste into rows. Place in the freezer for at least 30 minutes to set the mixture into solid drops that will hold their shape. Remove from the trays, and store in the fridge until use.

To prevent sickness and fend off symptoms of cold and flu before they set in, take one drop daily regardless of how you feel! If you start to feel as though you’ve made the catch of the season, take additional drops as needed for relief from sore throats and mild coughs.
