Treating your cough with over-the-counter medicine is not always a good idea. Have you thought about making natural alternatives that only include great ingredients? These DIY cough drops take a total of 25 minutes to produce.
The DIY cough drops require the following ingredients:
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup water
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup evaporated cane juice
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
powdered sugar or cornstarch
This is a very simple method that doesn’t require any special equipment. You will only need a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Get a saucepan and mix all the ingredients, excluding the powdered sugar or the cornstarch.
Put the saucepan on the stove at 300 F degrees. Cook the mix for around 15 to 20 minutes.
Get a spoon, scoop a little bit from the mixture and drop it in a bowl with water. If it has a chewy consistency, it is still not ready. Instead, it should crack. When it does, take the saucepan off from the heat. Let it stay on the side and cool down.
Use a spoon to start making the cough drops on the baking sheet. Top them off with the sugar or cornstarch.
