I've been trying to figure out a recipe for cough medicine. I'velooked on Bulk Store and I only get confused. I need a recipe I guess. Any ideas?
I have 2 dd , ages 1 1/2 and almost 3. This winter they have been coming down with a cold almost every time they get over one
- they'll go maybe a week with no runny nose and then it'll start all over again - and of course if one gets it the other does, too, no matter how hard I try to separate them
. The bad thing is that it always turns into a very bad cough and they've both had bronchitis, too. Well, I made some of the "children's composition" - equal parts yarrow, peppermint, and elderflower (I also added some echinacea), and I also made an elderberry tincture. I made them both 1/2 alcohol and 1/2 glycerite. (these were the first tinctures/herbal remedies I had ever made) The results have been amazing to me!
Three weeks ago they both started with the runny nose so I started giving them the tinctures - nothing like regularly, but as often as I remembered to - about 1/2 tsp every few hours of one or the other. They both got a bit of a cough but it cleared up before it got bad. Three or four days ago the older dd started getting a runny nose again! I've been more diligent about giving her the tinctures and I also have been giving it to the little one, and the runny nose is clearing up and the little one hasn't caught anything! I am so thankful!
All this to say...I haven't needed the cough medicine!!
