DIY Natural Remedy: Honey and Lemon Cough Drops

DIY Natural Remedy: Honey and Lemon Cough Drops


  • 1 cup raw honey

  • 1 teaspoon organic ginger powder

  • 1 whole lemon (juiced)

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil


  1. In a medium sized boiling pan, pour honey and coconut oil in.

  2. On medium heat, bring honey and coconut oil mixture to boil, letting boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.

  3. Remove from heat and add lemon juice and ginger powder, stirring until well mixed.

  4. Set mixture aside and fill large glass bowl with ice cold water.

  5. Next, CAREFULLY spoon out individual "drops" of honey mixture (1 spoon full), using additional spoon to "plop" honey mixture into cold water. DO NOT USE YOUR FINGERS, AS THIS MIXTURE WILL BURN YOUR SKIN.

  6. Once mixture has been placed into cold water (~5 seconds), remove mixture with hands and form into individual ball, placing on parchment paper to cool.

  7. Continue to repeat steps until entire batch has been used.

  8. Work quickly, as the honey mixture will harden fast.

  9. Store in air tight container in refrigerator or freezer.
