My youngest little came to me to ask for a cough drop. She said she wanted a sugary one like the kids have at school. I explained we DO NOT want sugar when we’re not above the wellness line because it doesn’t help our immune system.
I decided to look online for a healthier cough drop to make with coconut oil, add my favorite essential oils, and change it up to suit my family’s taste buds.
Win in our household!
These also make a great yummy drop of sweetness when you’re wanting something yummy without all the yucky stuff.
I eat a drop in the afternoon or add it to my tea.

DIY Healthy Cough Drops
You’ll need honey, (I use raw honey), organic cinnamon, lemon, coconut oil, a mixer, essential oil (I used Thieves), and a mold to freeze the drops in and a glass container.
- Put 1/2 cup or so of coconut oil depending on amount you want to make in a mixer for 5 to 7 minutes.
- Add in 1/2 cup honey, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, and 3 or so drops of essential oil of your choice.
- Mix until smooth.
- Pour into mold and into freezer until solid.
- Pop your drops into glass container and keep in fridge and enjoy!
Let me know if you make some and how they worked for you and your family.
