If you’re wondering “what is a recipe for homemade cough drops?” then you’re in the right place! The action of sucking a throat lozenge itself does do work in helping a sore throat. Cough drops helps to increase saliva production which can reduce the dry/scratchy/itchy throat feeling, and coating the throat can help to ease the cough reflex. **NOTE** These are meant for adults only. They do get chewy once you start eating them. They could be a choking hazard for children.
These homemade cough drops will help suppress your cough and soothe your sore throat. I love that they are all natural ingredients too. Each component has added benefits. You can try 5 natural cough home remedies too.
