Homemade Cough Syrup Honey & Onion Ayurvedic Cough Syrup



Natural cough syrup that is great for adults, and can be adjusted so that it excludes honey when using for young children. It saves money, tastes better than it sounds, and is healthier (and more effective) than over-the-counter cough medicine to boot. Using OTC cough medicine is just extra money spent, extra chemicals, and a nasty flavor, none of which you need when you’re already battling a cough. 

How to Make:

Red onion/garlic, honey, brown sugar/white sugar

Why red/yellow onion or garlic: Onion is contains a milder form of some of the active components in garlic, but both strengthen the immune system, work as natural anti-biotics, anti-inflammatories, and expectorants (they loosen up mucous so you can cough it up.)

Why honey: If you have a dry cough, honey is great for soothing itchy and irritated throats. It’s also a natural anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal wonder ingredient (although hopefully if you have a cough you won’t need the anti-fungal part.)

Why brown sugar/white sugar:
A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down right? Besides making this syrup a little easier to swallow, it can help thicken the syrup up a bit.

Ingredients:
1 red or yellow onion OR 1 head to ½ head of garlic
Roughly a cup of organic raw honey or roughly a cup OR roughly a half of granulated white sugar or brown sugar.
A jar or something similar with a tight fitting lid that will comfortably but snugly hold your onion.
Method:
Slice the onion evenly. Place the base of the onion in your jar, and then pour honey in a layer over it (or cover in a layer of sugar, if that’s your sweetener of choice.) Continue to alternate layering the onion and sweetener. When you’re finished, cover tightly and let it sit overnight out on the counter, or for 8-12 hours. After it has sat out, there will now be liquid in the jar. Use a spoonful as needed to control your cough (3 spoonful’s an hour, if needed.)You can use both the honey and brown sugar if you like, just adjust the layering accordingly, and remember that it will be sweeter! If you choose to use garlic, unlike onion, there is no exact amount to put in. Start with 9-12 cloves or so roughly chopped and find your flavor balance from there. Just remember you shouldn’t use too little; otherwise it won’t work as well.

Note: If you have a productive cough, as in you’re coughing up mucous, avoid suppressing it. The action of coughing is important to loosen up phlegm or mucous and get it out of your lungs.

How to use:
Take as often as you wish. A spoonful once every hour is not too much. There is no drug here, just healing elements of nature that people have lived with safely for years.

However, there is a lot of sugar in it, and sweet things can interfere with your immune system. Not what you want when you are sick. So take it only as needed.

If you use it before bed, remember to rinse out your mouth afterwards to remove the sugar from your teeth, perhaps using the salt water gargle.

Note: This syrup should be used fresh. After you make it, you can store it in the fridge that it lasts at least a month if kept in the refrigerator.After that, just whip up another batch.
Works well for most coughs.
Quick and easy to make, but needs to sit overnight before it is ready to use.
Lasts a month or more in the refridgerator.
Tastes ok, though with an onion flavor.

2nd Method:
One medium sized yellow onion
One or two cups of raw, unfiltered honey.
The amount of honey you will need depends on the size of your onion.
In a pinch you can use the cooked honey that is what most grocery stores sell, but the cooking destroys some of the healing properties of the honey.
A glass container with a water tight, screw lid to hold the mix, like a mason jar.(Do not use plastic)
