Homemade Cough Syrup Recipe!

My household has been sick more than ever this year. Pearl, Jack, and myself have all been victims of multiple colds & other viruses over the last few months. I’ve tried lots of things & this recipe I found on Pinterest has been the best so far at defeating the almighty cough. Store bought cough syrups contain all kinds of nasty chemicals. I have never felt comfortable taking, much less giving to my child. This recipe contains all natural food ingredients, specifically raw honey, which has been proven over and over again to aid in respiratory health.

It is safe to use on kids, just don’t use on a baby under 1 year old since it’s not recommended they have raw honey. Let me know if you have any cough syrup recipes you like in the comments!


  • 3 tablespoons raw hone
  • 2 tablespoons unrefined coconut oil, melted
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

    thank you Lisa !!! I am going to make this tonight for my dd…. when i have to remake my own DIY Vicks on the feet for cough too !!!!

  2. i just use 1Tablespoon honey (organic) 1 Tablespoon white vinegar, a squeeze of lemon and a dash of cinnamon.. i put a lil hot water in it and then mix well (the hot water makes it drinkable) and then drink.. so i guess its a single serving.. but it does work.. and pineapple juice to sip on for cough .. works wonders! :) Thanks for posting your recipe.. ill give it a go too :)

  3. I put honey on a tablespoon then I sprinkle some black pepper and turmeric. This really helped my 5 year old son when he got really sick with the worst cough imaginable. Turmeric is amazing when it comes to treating illness…

    Not sure if I missed this or not but how much and how often did you give to a 2 year old? I mean I know my daughter can’t overdose on it or anything but I wasn’t sure if it was just to be used as needed. Thanks!
