Belated Happy Mother’s Day to all the awesome Hive mommies here. I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day, surrounded by your babies, young and old, plus your hubby, grand babies, and/or fur babies too if you have any 😊
I had a great one. My mother in law flew in from Hungary, so we dined out for Mother’s Day. My youngest made me unicorn bath salt, my husband got me a new phone, not that I needed one, however the company I work at, been sending notifications for employees to upgrade their phones due to data security (but they don’t give us $$$$ to upgrade 😁), so now I need one. Short story, I had a great day.
It’s red sun and gloomy day here tho. I mentioned before how we have wild fires raging surrounding our town, evacuation orders and alerts been going off on our phones. It’s going to be +32 C today even, and to top that, I’ve been getting asthma attacks when smoggy days started last week. I also don’t stop coughing super badly regardless I stay inside.
Went to ER, they couldn’t help with the cough (they said it just has to run its course), went through bottles of this and that medicines, nothing worked, it’s so frustrating.
Now, for today’s sharing. I am trying this home remedy that my coworker mentioned. Which is fermenting onion in honey. Have you heard this cough remedy? Supposedly it’s been used for hundreds of years. Crossing my fingers!
1 large onion
500 ml honey
3 garlic (optional)
Peel the onion and slice thinly
Peel the garlic and crush roughly.
Place sliced onion and garlic into a Mason jar and pour in honey.
Cover jar with its lid and let stand on kitchen counter for 12 H. Your honey will no longer be thick as it was, it will be runny. The onion and garlic will be soften, and they will float to the top.
Strain and chill in the fridge. It is good for 2-3 weeks (supposedly). You don’t have to strain it, but it will only be good for a week max.
Consume per tsp for 2-3 times a day.
I read around, as soon as you feel you are catching cold or flu, a tsp a day is good. However, if you have annoying cough like me, it would take sometime to see result. So yeah, am crossing my fingers 😁 I do have an appointment to see my family doctor at the end of the month, as seriously, this cough has been persistent and annoying AF 😬
I have to mention, this cough syrup doesn’t taste like chicken btw! I mean, onion 😁 Yes, the smell is wow, strong of onion, but yes, it tastes just like honey. My youngest has been coughing too, and I have been giving him this as well, a smaller spoon than mine. Today is our day 2, so hopefully there will be good results asap!
