Commercial cough drops contain ingredients like acesulfame potassium, aspartame, malic acid, artificial coloring, sodium carboxymethylcellulose and so on.
Katie’s (Wellness Mama) recipe for homemade herbal cough drops contains organic honey, elderberry, chamomile, and other natural ingredients. Sounds healthier to me! I love Katie’s recipes because they’re clearly written and she gives you different options depending on the kitchen equipment you have.
