Echinacea Cold Syrup


How to make a Echinacea cold syrup

Make a powerful, immune-boosting natural echinacea cough syrup recipe for a fraction of the cost of the natural ones you buy in the store with not a single gibberish-sounding ingredient in sight. And, if you’re not happy taking over-the-counter medicines that do little to relieve your cold and leave you wondering what the heck you just put into your system instead, this recipe is for you!



    1. Place the echinacea, elderberries, licorice, cinnamon and ginger into a pot of 6 cups of distilled water.
    2. Heat water until boiling, then reduce to a simmer for 45 minutes (the longer it simmers the more goodness you’ll get out of the herbs). Reduce the water by half.
    3. Add the honey and stir.
    4. Pour into a jar and let it cool until warm.
    5. Sift out the herbs from the water by using a French press or cheese cloth.
    6. Take 1-2 tablespoons 2-3 times a day at the first sign of a cold or flu and continue taking as needed.

We hope you enjoy this modified immune boosting Echinacea cold syrup recipe. We have enjoyed adding it to our calming nightly ritual of warm tea with the children. They love the sweet taste and I love knowing they are getting all the benefits mentioned above.
