…made with doTERRA OnGuard Essential Oils.
And oh, my goodness, I’m feeling very clever right now. What do you think about a cough drop that has anti-viral properties and still tastes incredible? Hmmm? I’ll tell you, you’ve never had anything like this. I just hit me one night–while I was sound asleep–maybe I dreamed it, I don’t know. But I woke up thinking, “I need to make my own cough drops and these ones will not just soothe a sore throat, but they can actually fight off the virus that causing it in the first place.” So there.
I have recently become an enormous fan of doTERRA Essential Oils–I know, I know, I was a bit slow to catch that train. But I’m here now and I’m pretty excited to find all these unbelievably simple ways to help the sweet little moms and dads that I teach every week…plus my own family and friends. So my Honey Spice Cough Drops are a good place to start. You, my friends, will love them. And then would you do me a little favor and flit on over and “like” my new Facebook page? It would mean the world to me.
In exchange, I’ll give you my brand new secret recipe…
for your very own.
Honey Spice Cough Drops
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup butter
3-5 drops doTERRA *OnGuard Essential Oil
Put all the ingredients except OnGuard Essential Oil in a heavy pan and cook slowly over medium heat until it reaches the “hard crack stage.” Resist the urge to turn the heat up higher to speed up the process. It will burn unless you keep it on medium and check it often. Once you can drizzle a spoonful of the syrup into a cup of cold water and have it turn to brittle threads–take it off the heat immediately. Wait about 30 seconds to a minute and then add the OnGuard Essential Oil. Stir.
Pour into a buttered cookie sheet. Fold edges of the candy into the middle until cool enough to handle.
Working quickly, pull and roll into long strips…
and cut into nickle size pieces.
Allow to cool completely and harden. If your drops have been cooked long enough, you’ll be able to store them in a ziploc bag.
If they are a bit soft and still sticky, wrap them in waxed paper squares and store in a ziploc bag.
Just wait until you tell your friends what you just did.
You’ll likely be worshiped as a Goddess of Health and Healing.
If you play your cards right, it’ll be true.
