Onion Juice Cough Medicine

For hot onion juice with herbs:
1/2 cup of water
1 medium onion, cubed
1 tsp honey, maple syrup (or rock sugar)  for vegans
2 sage leaves, minced
1 tsp fresh thyme, minced

Place cubed onions in a saucepan, add the honey and water, and cook while stirring, until the sweetener has dissolved and the mix gets a little thicker.
Fill in a jar with screwtop, add sage and thyme. Screw on the top and shake. Leave to cool down for 2 hours.
After the blend has cooled, strain the juice from the blend. The juice can be taken 3 teaspoonfuls 3 times a day and will last in an airtight container at least two weeks in the refrigerator. ©2013Sabineart.com

 

For cold onion syrup (supposedly more potent):
1 medium or large onion, cubed
2 tsp honey, maple syrup (or rock sugar)  for vegans

Place the cubed onion in a jar with screwtop, add enough sweetener that the onions are covered (maybe 2 Tbs), close the glass and shake. Let the blend sit for 2 hours or overnight or in a warm place. The onion will sweat juice that will absorb the sweetener. After the resting period, strain the onion blend with a strainer or cheese cloth, fill in an airtight container. This blend is also to be taken as 3 teaspoonfuls 3 times a day and supposedly lasts one week in the refrigerator. ©2013Sabineart.com

  1. Hi Christine,

    That sounds good too, I believe the ginger is very potent. I remember my old roommate was drinking Ginger in water for nausea, or stomach trouble, I believe.
    I have to try that one as well. : )

  2. Hi, Sabine

    I need to try this out.

    My cold recipe is somewhat similar, but with ginger, honey and lemon.
    We squeeze a two inch ginger in a cup add a tbsp of honey, add juice of half a lemon, then add hot water to it.
