Homemade Cough Elixer

My big baby (17 y/o DD) is sick 😦 .  Fever, painful cough, sneezing, body aches and all. Poor thing. She’s usually very good at healing herself, I’ve taught her well. However, this time, she needs Mommy’s help.  Mommy to the rescue DD!

I made her a cough elixer that is both soothing and effective at breaking up mucus.

The ingredients:


2 oz water

1 oz ACV

1 oz raw honey

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

1/2 tsp ginger (ground or chopped 





Combine all of the above ingredients and store in a glass jar or bottle. Take 1-2 tsp as often as needed for cough.

Store in a dark place. This does not have to be refrigerated (its more effective if its warm).

Feel better.



Next up in the kitchen… Mama’s Homemade Hot Toddy.  Sickness be damned.
