Home Made All Natural Cough Drops – Home Made Cold & Flu Remedy – Throat Lozenges


We hate cough drops almost as much as we hate coughing. The ones we buy in the store either taste like candy or some kind of poison, and the throat-soothing affect of either is always a little dubious. But there are some cough drops we think we can get on board with: the homemade kind!

Sucking on a cough drop promotes the flow of saliva in the mouth, lubricating and soothing the throat and helping with the flow of the mucus. That said, some of the benefits of a cough drop can be achieved with a piece of hard candy. In fact, cough drops are made pretty much the same way hard candy is made, but with a few additions to further alleviate symptoms.

you’ll need:

  • 1 Cup of sugar
  • 1/2 Cup of water
  • 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon of honey
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of ground cloves

Tip: Let it cool and store in the fridge.
