Seasonal Top Tip #1 Onion Cough Syrup

Festive Top Tip #1

Chopped onions steeped for a few hours in honey make a soothing cough syrup. Take one spoonful every few hours to calm sore throats and dry coughs. 

 

WHY? Onions can strengthen the immune system.  They work as natural antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, and expectorants (they loosen mucous so you can cough it up).  Raw honey is great for soothing itchy and irritated throats. It is also anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.
