Onion and Honey Cough Syrup – Two POWERFUL Ingredients – Ready to use in 24 Hours!

Honey has been used for a variety of ailments since ancient times. The use of honey for sore throats and coughs can be traced back to Ancient Greece and the Vedic Period in India. 

Onions possess natural antibacterial properties and are rich in antioxidants. When combined with honey, which soothes the throat and suppresses coughs, this syrup becomes a potent elixir for respiratory relief. Onions contain anti-inflammatory compounds such as quercetin and kaempferol, which have been shown to reduce inflammation in the airways. By reducing inflammation, onions can help alleviate coughing associated with irritated or swollen airways. Because onions quickly disperse throughout the body, they come in contact with microorganisms like bacteria. Then, they penetrate these organisms and interfere with their functioning. In addition, sulfur compounds can also stimulate white blood cell production. These immune system cells provide our body’s defense and protection.  

Honey is rich in minerals, enzymes, several B vitamins, prebiotics, and antioxidants.
It has strong antibacterial properties and has served humans as food and medicine for millennia.
Honey reduces irritation in the throat and on the skin.
Pollen and propolis are what make honey so medicinal. By the way, propolis is the sticky resin from trees that bees use to protect their hives. And propolis is a powerful antibiotic, antifungal, and antiviral. While bees use it to protect their homes, we eat honey to support our health.

Raw honey should never be heated above 118F if we want to preserve its medicinal quality.

Onions and honey make a powerful home remedy that is ready to use in just 24 hours. 
Honey is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and is a powerful antioxidant.

Onion is an antioxidant, that fights inflammation in the body, helps to clear mucus, and contains electrolytes that help to hydrate your body.

You will start with a sterilized mason jar. Then, you will dice an organic onion. I used red onion. All types of onions are good for you, but this dark reddish-purple variety, sometimes called purple onions, has especially high levels of quercetin and other flavonoids. You will layer the onion in the bottom of your jar. You will then add a layer of organic, local honey. You will repeat layers until you have enough to last the season for your family.

You will see that this remedy will begin to work after only 1 hour. It will have worked its magic in just 24 hours. You will strain the onions and keep this magic potion in the refrigerator for the season. You will notice that the consistency is considerably thinner. The honey has mixed with the powerful ingredients in the onion.

Tip: I like to reserve the onions to use as a flavorful and healthy addition to salad dressings. 

Take 1/2-1 teaspoon (2.5 – 5 milliliters) every 1-2 hours. 
Do not give this remedy to infants under one year of age. 

To ensure that you are not allergic to any ingredients in the syrup, put a dot of syrup on your finger and apply a tiny amount to just inside your lip. If after 5 minutes there is no reaction, you can proceed to take the recommended amount.
If you are concerned with the rumors of bochilism add 1 Tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar.

I personally have never had a problem.
