Need cough drops without all the high fructose corn syrup and other yack? Try Homemade Thieves Cough Drops. They’re super easy to make and taste great so even the kids won’t mind!
So on my mission to cut down on over-processed foods and things I can’t pronounce I started reading ingredients and I’m constantly shocked at where they try to sneak in food dyes or corn syrup on us.
Marshmallows need to be a little whiter? Add some blue dye!
Ketchup not quite red enough? Bring on the red food dye!
The same goes for cough drops which is why I don’t let my kids have them as I’d rather stick to just giving lemon on a teaspoon of honey. This year armed with my Young Living oils I am loving the combination of Thieves and Lemon to help combat sickies (see how my buddy combatted the sickies in her house here.) Anyhoo, I wanted to make some cough drops with the oils and made these Homemade Thieves Cough Drops. They’re only 4 ingredients and taste great. They’ll keep in a jar for a couple of months so make a batch now before you feel yuck! I put mine in a cute mason jar and am planning on gifting them to a friend of mine who loves cough drops!
NOTE: They’re not as hard as a cough drop or rather mine weren’t but I used Agave and not honey. Just didn’t want you to expect a hard cough drop!
