Sweet Lemon Honey & Thyme Cough Syrup Recipe

  • Total Time: 7 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x


  • a handful of fresh thyme sprigs (or buy organic thyme leaves)
  • 1 pint of water (2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup honey (raw is best, but regular will do)
  • 1/2 lemon chopped


  1. Place the lemon in the pint jar and cover with the honey. The honey will macerate the lemons and draw out liquids which taste so delicious!
  2. Meanwhile, toss the thyme leaves into a saucepan and cover them with the water.
  3. Bring the water to a gentle simmer and reduce it to half, about a cup of tea.
  4. When the tea is reduced and cooled a bit, strain the sprigs & leaves, add it into the pint jar and stir it well.
  5. Give it a shake and use a spoonful as needed.
  6. Store your homemade cough syrup in the refrigerator for about a month.
