This 3-Ingredient Homemade Syrup Helps Relieve Sore Throat and Cough

homemade cough syrup

A sore throat is one of the easiest ways to detect the common cold. The virus causes inflammation in your throat, which makes it sore and swollen.

Conventional cough syrup has a lot of unnecessary ingredients. Many contain artificial color and flavour to make them more appealing. They also have preservatives and chemicals you’ve probably never heard of.

This easy recipe uses 3 ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen. Best of all, it’s easy and effective.

Homemade Cough and Sore Throat Remedy


  • 4 tbsp high quality honey
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cm fresh ginger, grated


  • Pour the honey into a bowl.
  • Add the onion and ginger.
  • Leave the mixture in a closed container overnight.
  • Remove onion and ginger before use.


Eat 1 teaspoon every few hours until symptoms vanish. Combined with lots of water, sleep and a tall box of tissues, that cold will be gone in no time!

How Does It Work?

Honey is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. It eases coughs and coats sore throats (1).

Onions contain phenolics, flavonoids and quercetin which are anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and possess antioxidant properties (2,3).

Ginger contains gingerol, a powerful anti-inflammatory compound (4).
