How to Make Homemade Cough Drops Tutorial

This is a quick and easy homemade remedy using natural products to help ease coughs.

The good thing about making your own cough drops is they are free from artificial sweeteners and chemicals that are not good for your health.

The homemade cough drops keep well, you just need to make sure that they are kept in a dry, closed container. I like to use small tupperware or plastic containers for these.

It makes them convenient to throw in your pocket or purse, or put some in the car so you can nip that cough in the bud 😉
