Natural Cough Drops

FullSizeRender (17)When you are sick, it is very easy to slide into a routine of consuming processed junk and over the counter drugs just to keep up with your daily responsibilities. This is the absolute worst of times to fill your body with garbage. You need to give your body all the building blocks it needs to repair and heal. The best way to avoid that landslide is to keep a pocket full of quick and easy recipes that you can handle even when you’re sick. These cough drops are just minutes away. You can also plop one in cup of hot tea or hot water for a soothing drink. Another handy use for them is as candy! Isn’t that fun? These little lumps of natures best give a little uplifting punch of energy too. How could you go wrong?

Ingredients:FullSizeRender (16)

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup coconut oil

10 drops orange oil

*optional*  2 drops peppermint

Instructions: Mix. Place desired size blobs on parchment on a baking sheet, or into a greased candy mold and freeze for 15-30 min. Store in refrigerator or freezer.

I’ll keep this post quick and easy like the recipe. That is the point after all.  If you do not have essential oils to use, flavorings will work, you just wont be getting the healing properties of the oils. Also, just the honey and coconut oil give the throat a soothing coat of armor. Raw and local honey is best, and organic extra virgin a.k.a. unrefined coconut oil.
