Are you looking for an alternative to store bought cough syrup? The reason cough syrups bought at the store work so well is they have various synthetic ingredients. If you have a tickle in the throat, then you may want to use a homemade licorice cough syrup instead.
Taking a tablespoon of a homemade licorice cough syrup at night is the best way to make sure you will purge any sickness from your body. The cough syrup has two main ingredients that will help to remove phlegm and provide a boost to the immune system. You can take the syrup for about two weeks.
The key to making licorice cough syrup at home is making an infusion. You will use licorice root and the leaf of the Echinacea plant for the infusion. Heat will also be used to blend all the ingredients that are being used in the recipe when making your own cough syrup.
