home made decongestant

This homemade decongestant is good for breaking up chest congestion so you can clear it out. Anyone old enough to eat honey can take it.
Ingredients
  • 1 c. honey
  • 1 c. lemon juice
  • 5-7 radishes
  • 1 sm. red onion
  • 6 garlic cloves (If my cloves are super-small, I use a couple more.)

Instructions
  1. Wash, peel, and trim the vegetables as appropriate, and cut the onion into 2-4 chunks.
  2. Dump everything into the blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Strain.
  4. Refrigerate between uses, for up to a week or so.
  5. TO USE:
  6. Adults take 2 Tbsp. once a day, or more as needed/desired.
  7. Children take 1 Tbsp. once a day, or more as needed/desired.
  8. Should begin expelling within 24 hours. (We have typically noticed it kicking in within the first couple hours.)

I don't think I will be making this but it looks like if you put a little rum in it that you could have a nice drink....but when you read the ingredents I think vodka would taste better in it...add tomato juice and it might be a nice bloody mary...glad to see your posts so early in the AM

Probably better for you and would help more than what you buy...also side effects nil. But I am too lazy to make it.
