How to Treat Sore Throat and Cough Naturally

3 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup local raw honey
2 tablespoons coconut oil

Mix all the ingredients together in a small
saucepan and heat over low until coconut oil is
melted. Take warm syrup by the spoonful as desired. You can also mix the syrup into hot water or tea. Once
the syrup is cooled the coconut oil will harden. Gently warm the syrup up before using. Store in refrigerator for up to a month.
Honey has powerful anti-viral and anti-microbial properties! In clinical studies, honey has shown to be just as affective in alleviating coughs as over the counter cough medicine. Honey is also known to help alleviate allergies. According to this article, taking a few teaspoons of local raw honey a day prior to pollen season can be
affective in boosting your immunity to pollen!
Lemon Juice
Lemon juice is often used in home remedies For a good reason! It is known to help boost the immune system and also has antiviral and
antibacterial properties. I personally like to
drink lemon juice when I have a stuffy nose. It helps to clear my sinuses so I can breathe
Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is rich in antioxidants and contains lauric acid, which is anti-bacterial and anti- viral. Coconut oil can be used to help prevent colds by boosting the immune system. Once the cold is set in, coconut oil can help reduce the length of sickness and can be quite soothing when added to warm honey-lemon water or tea.
Mix these three ingredients together and you
have yourself a super immune boosting syrup
that will help alleviate coughs and sore throats!
