This homemade decongestant is reported to be great for breaking up chest congestion so you can clear it out. Anyone old enough to eat honey can take it (in other words – it’s not for infants).
The formula uses all herbal and natural ingredients – and it should have a little bit of a kick to it, as it includes raw garlic, onion, radishes, lemon juice and honey.
Looking at these awesome ingredients, you should find that it is not only decongestant but also powerfully antibiotic – and a kind of cleansing formula to boot. Almost all of these ingredients also appear on my page ofTop 10 Cold/Flu Remedies.
Because of the onions and garlic, it reminds me somewhat of the turbocharged “master tonic” – only this formula is not made with hot peppers so it should be valuable for people of all constitutions.
I wish we had had this kind of stuff when I was a kid. Instead we got absoulutely horrible penicillin. This was before the days of capsules, and it was a pink, sticky syrup that we had to take by the spoonful.
Ok back to the topic, I don’t want to give anyone bad dreams!

- 1 c. honey

- TO USE:
- Adults take 2 Tbsp. once a day, or more as needed/desired.
