An Herbalist Advice: The Wild Bark Cough Medicine

940335d8dbeb74b2ffa31115eee6667f.jpg

It is inevitable, we all get sick and we all deal with the dry, rough, crackling coughing that comes along with it. Allergy season brings this coughing about, but so does the cold dry winter air. In order to keep us from the devastating cough, there are countless of over-the-counter medicines that you can purchase, but more often than not, that medicine is doing more harm than good. Due to the high content of chemicals that are laced in them. Here is an alternative cough syrup that I’ve created.

1/2 cup water
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon dried mullein leaves
1 teaspoon dried lavender
1 teaspoon dried elecampane
1 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves
1 teaspoon dried powdered or cinnamon bark
1 teaspoon dried chopped wild cherry bark
1 teaspoon dried chopped rose petal
1 pinch of cayenne

Combine all of the ingredients in a small pot. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat. Simmer, uncovered, until the mixture has reduced by about one-half. Remove from the heat and strain. Cool to room temperature. Take 1/2 to 1 teaspoon as often as every 2 hours. Store in the refrigerator.
