These natural homemade cough drops are my go-to when I'm fighting a cold. Made with natural ingredients like raw honey which is known to help suppress coughing and immune boosting coconut oil they are worth a try
½ cup coconut oil ½ cup extra virgin olive oil ¼ cup dried comfrey ¼ cup dried calendula beeswax 2 tablespoons of honey (optional) 10 drops lavender essential oil (optional) jars (I use these - they can also be found for cheaper at WalMart)
