Homemade Cold And Flu Cough Drops Are A Lifesaver This Winter
FaithTap Staff 11/28/2018
We all love the holidays for the time with family, awesome presents, and of course, the bond it gives us with Jesus Christ. But there's something rather unholy about the holidays - and it's one thing we want to put an end to once and for all.
We're talking about nasty wintertime sniffles and sore throats!
All of the running around during Christmastime can leave our bodies depleted of the energy to fight funky bugs and more vulnerable to them because of chilly weather! We need our health during this busy season more than any other time of the year - but sickness is always lurking around the corner. Thankfully, there's something you can make right in your own kitchen to help.
As soon as you start to feel ill, jump into the kitchen and prepare this helpful homemade recipe. The ingredients are simple, natural and easy to combine. The first thing you'll need to do is gather the goods.
Once you have the ingredients on the list above, grab a saucepan and mix together a half-cup of water, the sugar, lemon juice, honey, ginger and cloves on medium-high heat. Dave Hax, the helpful man who created this video, explains that every single one of these ingredients has special natural medicinal properties that can help bring us relief during times of sickness. Thank goodness for Mother Earth!
After the ingredients are thoroughly mixed, it's time to drip them into cute, snack-sized drops. You'll need to do this with a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Carefully, use a teaspoon to drop small amounts of the goo onto the parchment paper.
As soon as the drops cool, you can pop them into your mouth and begin the countdown to much-needed relief.
The best part is, not only will these cough drops hopefully help you feel better with natural qualities, they have a scrumptious taste. Who said being sick had to be all bad? Now you won't have to suffer through your cold in silence (besides your cough). You can get back on track and feeling healthy again before the New Year rolls around!
Don't lose precious holiday memories to a gosh darn cold.
