DIY Anti-Cough Drops with Essential Oils
You will need the following ingredients:
¾ cup of honey
½ cup of boiling water
3 bags of herbal tea, your preference
8 drops of your favorite essential oils
A candy thermometer
A small pot with a thick bottom
Steep the tea in the boiling water for 20 minutes. Then, mix the tea with the essential oils and honey. Now, place them in the pot and bring it to heating. Don’t stir. Heat the drops to 300 degrees and then place the content into desired molds and mix them now.
Wait for the drops to cool down and then wrap them in wax paper. To ensure they last longer, keep them in an airtight container in the fridge.
Important to Note
- Before trying new ingredients, perform a small test first
- Add the essential oils after heating the honey; otherwise, heating them will diminish their healing benefits
- Consult your physician in case you have a chronic disease
- Consume them only to control cough, not as regular candy
