Flu and Cold Buster

From our kitchen to yours: This is by far our favorite DIY flu and cold buster remedy.

This beats any over the counter medication, and you won’t have all the sugar in it.

This cold and flu buster is armed with: Cayenne pepper, raw honey, raw Apple cider vinegar, raw Garlic and raw ginger.

 What you need:

¼ tsp cayenne

1 crushed organic garlic clove

¼ tsp raw ginger

1 tbsp organic apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp raw and organic honey


Dissolve cayenne and ginger in apple cider vinegar

Add honey and crushed garlic

Shake well

Take 1 tbsp as needed for cough and when feeling under the weather

NOTE: you can keep up to 6 months refrigerated (without the garlic). I suggest you add the fresh garlic as you go, as it will not keep more than a week otherwise. We recommend Living Tree Community Foods for the best honey. For an even more potent version use Manuka Honey.

  1. Sounds potent – but the instruction as far as the garlic is vague – 1/3 what? Teaspoon? Clove?

  2. Michael Combs says:

    do you add water or anything? sure doesn’t make very much

    • Please do not add water as it would be less potent, you need to double or triple the amount. it depends on how much you need , this is based on a 1 time serving.
      I usually make enough for 2 days and take it 3 times a day. This comes to 6 tablespoons…

  3. Mary Keller-Butler says:

    For the Mega DIY Flu & Cough Buster – what’s the amount for the garlic? Is it 1/3 of a clove, 1/3 t, 1/3 T, 1/3 c (hee, hee)? I just saw this recipe on facebook, and many people are asking about the amount of garlic. Thanks for your help.
