Coughs are right up there with one of the most annoying things in the world.
A couple years ago David got this insanely persistent cough that would. not. go. away. (and I’m not sure which of us it annoyed more)
I think we tried all sorts of natural cough remedies to no avail, so with great desperation I bought something that the interwebs reported to work.
The online peeps were right. Before long, David began to sound like a normal human being again!
What is this amazing elixir?
It’s called Elecampane.
Here we show you how we use it and our personal experience of why we don’t really recommend getting the actual root!
If you’d rather, you can also make a tea with the elecampane drops instead of putting it in the lemon/honey mixture. Although David did eventually get better at making tea with the root, my experience was a bit ruined by that point 🙂
And for kids we recommend trying the cough elixir kids’ version. (We can’t vouch for it from personal use, however.)
