Homemade Cough Syrup

Homemade Cough Syrup

We are going to make up some simple honey cough syrup. As I dive deeper into my herbal studies, I find that Mother Nature continues to blow my mind even more than I thought possible. Everything we need to be our optimal selves is right there growing all around us. And the beautiful concept about the whole thing is the incredible circle that exists when it comes to plants and herbal medicine.
