A couple posts ago, I mentioned that I used a homemade Cough Remedy for my kids and had folks interested in my recipe. So...here's what we use at our house when my kids get that nasty, dry, croupy cough:
I mix it together and keep it in a glass jar in the fridge. Then I give whomever is barking about 1-4 tsp of it, spread out through the day. We have yet to see a cough that hasn't responded within 24 hours.
