All you need is an onion and some honey.
- Slice a large onion into rings and place them in a deep bowl.
- Cover the onion slices in organic or Manuka honey and let it stand overnight.
- In the morning, strain off the mixture of honey and onion juice, and you have yourself a simple cough *elixir!
The honey itself is often included in cough mixtures, because it has antimicrobial and expectorant properties.
Manuka honey is especially good because it has been scientifically shown to kill and protect against drug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, commonly called MRSA.
