Feel a Cold Coming On? Make These DIY Cough Drops!

February 24, 2017 1:03 pm

If you're battling a cough and looking for relief, there is a way to find it — even without all the artifical flavors and sugars from traditional cough drops. Use this simple DIY recipe for homemade cough drops using healthy ingredients like coconut oil, honey and cinnamon.


  • 100g raw organic honey
  • 100ml of coconut oil
  • A pinch of Ceylon cinnamon


Pour the coconut oil into a bowl and whip it until it becomes nice and frothy. Then, gradually add the honey and go on whipping in order to get a full and thick paste. In the end, add the cinnamon.

Next, pour the mixture into empty ice cube trays and freeze them for half an hour. You can keep the cough drops in a glass Mason jar in the fridge for up to 2 months.
