It is pretty hard to get through winter without succumbing to a cold or flu with a dose of the coughs thrown in for good measure.

It is a well-known fact that most over the counter cough medications actually do very little to alleviate the symptoms and are now not recommended for children at all.

This great combination is easy to make and is full of bug fighting ingredients that will help to relieve the symptoms at the same time.

All you need is a glass jar with tight fitting lid and the following four ingredients….juice of 1 lemon, 3 tablespoons of honey, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. You may need to gently heat the coconut oil as it tends to solidify in the cold weather. Add them all to the jar and whisk well together. Take a tablespoon at a time as often as required. This mixture is not suitable for children under 12 months old as it contains honey and is considered unsafe.
