Sore Throat Syrup to Coat & Soothe
- 1/2 cup water
- Juice from 2 medium sized organic lemons (1/2 cup lemon juice concentrate works in a pinch)
- 1/2 cup local, raw honey
- 2 generous teaspoons of each powdered herb: slippery elm, marshmallow root, licorice root
- Mix well together in a 8 or 16 ounce canning jar
This mixture will thicken as the herbs have mucilaginous properties, how & why they coat and sooth.
Dose: a heaping teaspoon as needed to soothe and coat the throat when sore, hoarse, or dry cough.
