Every cough syrups have some amount of alcohol in it. As there are so many cough syrups available in the market, so every syrups have different quantity of alcohol in it. The scientist said that, the presence of alcohol is very necessary in cough syrups, because after taking the cough syrups the patient can sleep well. Due to sleeping, the patient can be healthier soon. We should not give cough syrups to children because of alcohol. We have seen that so many of children died due to taking cough syrups. For this, I am going to tell you a very best and safest method to cure cough of children.
Homemade Cough Syrup
- 1/2 cup of 100% pure lemon juice. No sugar or anything should be in Lemon juice. Lemon juice should be fresh.
- 1/2 cup of 100% pure honey. Honey should be pure not have any type of mixture in it.
- 1/4 cup of raisins (partially dry grapes).
You will also need some kitchen gadget like saucepan, spoon, glass jar etc.
Process for making it
- First of all put your raisins in the chopper to chop them very fine. Chop it until it becomes a fine powder.
- On the other side, put full lemon juice in the saucepan and add half amount of honey in it. Put saucepan on the burner and heat it on a low temperature. Stir the mixture until it becomes a saturated mixture (means no further mixing is possible).
- After this, add the other half honey in this mixture. Now this time heat's this on high temperature. Heat it until the mixture gets boiled.
- Add the chops raisins to this mixture and cook it on medium heat. Stir this mixture constant until raisins get dissolved in the solution. This will take time. Once the raisins got dissolved in the solution, then remove it from the heat. Allow the mixture to cool for several minutes.
- At this stage, your homemade syrup is ready, but this syrup will always have some undissolved raisins. You can pour it by using some sterilize jar. Some children don't like the undissolved form of raisin, therefore pouring is very good for them. But I recommend you not to purify it. As this raisins are very good for the nutrition of our children.
Refrigerate your syrup but not for a long time, because it contains honey in it. Honey can stick in the solution and can be in the form of hard materials. I recommend you to make this syrup after 2-3 days. As this is very short recipe and does not have anything in it which is so expensive. This syrup can be so thick, so you can warm it very light before taking it. Its taste is very sweet, so kids will take this syrup without any hesitations.
As this is a homemade syrup so you cannot contact with doctor to take it. I recommend you to take this syrup 3 times in a day. Especially take it at night. After taking this, your kid will sleep very well and will be well.
Why this syrup is best
Raisins (partially dry grapes) are very good for us. Grapes losses phlegm and make you very easy to get rid of congestion. Honey is always very good for every disease. Doctors said that honey can cure more than 100 diseases. Honey makes our throat very smooth. In older times, when there were no cough syrups available in the market, then healers (Hakeem) usually gave honey to cough patient and that time they got well very soon. Lemon contains vitamins C and they are a very good antiseptic fruit. They always reduce the inflammation in our body. As in cough, our thyroid gland gets swell. For this situation it is better for us to take lemon juice.
By combining all of these three ingredients, we can have a world best anti-cough syrup. As this syrups does not have any toxic or chemical, so it is better than other syrups which contains alcohol and other chemical.
