Bay Laurel Cough Syrup
Did you know that you can prepare your own cough syrup, which is not only natural and free of undesirable side effects, but also extremely effective? This syrup may have already been prepared by your grandmother or great-grandmother, but many useful recipes of our ancestors slowly sink into oblivion.
Thus, it is important that at least occasionally open the grandmother's chest, full knowledge of the healing properties of various plants. In this "chest" we found a recipe for a simple bay syrup to mitigate cough ...
- Boil water and add bay leaves. Cover the pot and let stand for about 10 minutes.
- Remove the bay leaves and stir in sugar and lemon juice.
- Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Your homemade cough syrup is now ready.
Bay syrup is not only useful cough medicine, but there’s an important advantage – it tastes pretty good so even children will not have problems with taking it. In addition, the bay syrup revives your body, which is certainly very convenient, because we are usually feeling a significant lack of energy when ill.
Teaspoon of bay cough syrup can be taken several times a day until the problems with the cough do not subside. Keep syrup stored in a refrigerator, where it will stay useful for several days. You can take it cold or hot.
