Next time you have a respiratory ailment like bronchitis or a cough from a cold instead of reaching for a store bought aid why not make your own natural pine needle syrup for respiratory ailments. The pine needles help with the inflammation and have antibacterial properties. The honey used in the recipe helps to sooth and suppress the cough so you can feel a little better.
You can make this right in your kitchen and all you need is honey, water and some pine needles. Make it up a head of time and store it in a jar. Then when you need it you can add some to tea or other hot beverage or even just take it by the spoonful. This recipe comes from Daily Health Post. It is so nice when you can find an inexpensive alternative to a commercial product. Making it at home you know what is in there and it can really save you some money.
