Aloe and honey cough remedy
Aloe is bitter but the honey makes this quite palatable, making it easier to take your medicine. Particularly good for a dry cough.
- If you are using your own aloe leaves, make sure that you drain off the latex first or you will have a powerful purgative on your hands.
- Thoroughly combine equal parts aloe juice and honey.
- Mix and dilute by the teaspoon in boiling water and drink as a tea as needed. Will keep up to a week if kept refrigerated in an airtight container.
Why it works
Aloe soothes and coats sore and irritated tissues. Honey does the same and gives you some energy to keep fighting.
Consult a doctor if you are taking any of the following as there are possible interactions with aloe: Antidiabetic Medications, Digoxin and Diuretics.
