Homemade Cough Syrup 1


Have you ever tried to make your own Homemade Cough Syrup?

This is a natural homemade cough syrup and you get to control the ingredients! 

I really like this homemade cough syrup or remedy you might call it that I found on Barefeet In the Kitchen while looking for homemade solutions for the cold and flu season.

The supplies are easily found in your kitchen and are powerfully potent components that combine to soothe and calm coughs. 

And you can read the ingredients!

C’mon in and Give it a try.

Homemade Cough Syrup


2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar

2 Tablespoons honey

2 Tablespoons water

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon ground dry ginger



Place all the ingredients in a small container or jar and shake to combine well.

You can leave out at room temperature for a day or two, or in the refrigerator for longer storage.

Shake well before using to combine all the ingredients.

This is a thin liquid and will remain watery.

Take anywhere from a teaspoon to a tablespoon as desired.

  • Carrie,

    I can definitely see this combination working. Cayenne Pepper will flush anything out especially with the miracle of vinegar.

    Sharing just to save in case we need it this winter.
