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.
