Homemade Cough Syrup with thyme and honey


Homemade Cough Syrup with thyme and honey

The baby has a cough. My first instinct is to turn to a herbal remedy, but there is too much junk in commercial medicine. Besides which, there is not cough medicine out there for babies under 2. So, I made some homemade Thyme Cough Syrup and it gave our baby the relief he needed to get a few hours of uninterrupted sleep.

Homemade Cough Syrup


  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 cup honey (I used organic)
  • Bottle to store (I used the honey bottle)


  1. Put thyme in tea ball. If you don’t have a tea ball, you can make your own by bundling up the thyme in a coffee filter and closing it with a twist-tie.
  2. Pour boiling water over thyme in a measuring cup.
  3. Leave the thyme in the water until the water cools to room temperature.
  4. Remove the thyme from the water and discard.
  5. Stir in honey.
  6. Pour into storage container and keep in the refrigerator.

To use: Shake well before using. Take one tablespoon several times a day for colds, coughs, and sore throat.
