life & vintage remedies ~ August 27
ahh well ~ I knew it had to come. We are all sick with coughs and colds. After weeks of sitting in Dr's waiting rooms & hospitals it isn't surprising that we caught something. I really hate when I am sitting waiting to see my Dr and there are other people coughing and sneezing without using a handkerchief or tissue. Sharing their germs to the rest of us ~ I would rather they wouldn't
Had a little search for a natural cough mix and found this:
HONEY IS A DEFINITE HEALER & THYME HAS ANTIBACTERIAL PROPERTIES
1 cup honey
1/2 cup fresh thyme or 1/4 cup dried thyme
In a small saucepan, combine the honey and thyme. heat gently over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, being sure not to let the honey boil or scorch. Remove from heat and allow the honey to cool. Strain out the herbs, then bottle the mix in a lovely old bottle & put a gorgeous label on it. To relieve colds, coughs, and sore throats, take 1 teaspoon of this thyme-infused honey three times a day. You could also add a teaspoon of it to a cup of regular hot tea and sip slowly.
