Recipe: Honey Lemon Ginger Cough Drops

Are people around you getting colds? Do you know what you can do to naturally lower your risk and keep your immune system in tip-top shape?

Handwashing is #1, but there are a bunch of foods (and lifestyle) factors you can include too.

Check out my latest post HERE to learn more. 

Then try out the all-natural recipe below for DIY cough drops! 

Recipe (Throat soothing): Honey Lemon Ginger Cough Drops

½ cup honey
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp freshly grated ginger root


Put ingredients into a small saucepan.

Stir frequently until it becomes foamy. Be careful because the honey can burn easily.

Remove from heat and continue to stir until the foam reduces. 

Put the saucepan back on the heat. 

Repeat this until a candy thermometer reads 300F. 

Drop a bit into a glass of ice water. If the mixture forms a hard, crunchy ball, it’s ready! If not, keep stirring and heating for another minute or two and try with the ice water again.

Once a hard ball forms from a drop into the ice water, let the saucepan cool until the foam has reduced. 

Drizzle the candy into a candy mold or onto oiled parchment paper.

Let cool at room temperature until the cough drops are hard. 

Pop out of the mold or break into pieces, and store in an airtight container. 

Tip: You can sprinkle them with vitamin C powder to keep them from sticking together.
