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. For an even more potent version use Manuka Honey.

We recommend the Snugglespoon Honey from Living Tree Community Foods for this recipe or the Manuka Honey.

As always: Check with your health practitioner before you change your diet and see if this is right for you. This is not meant to replace any treatment or drugs you are taking.

  2. Could you provide measurements for the size of 2 cup mason jar. It would really help for all the non Betty Crockers.

  3. Nice article. Very informative. Keep posting.

  4. My grandmother and a close friend said to use the Honey from where you live. Mostly for Allergies but for flu’s and colds as well.

  5. Hi,
    This is wonderful!!! Could you use ground ginger? I do not use a lot of raw ginger, though I almost bought some the other day lol. If you get the raw do you just grate it with a cheese grater? Sorry seems like a silly questions, but…

    • Hi Amy,
      Raw ginger is much better as it is fresh and you will get the “live” health benefits. Yes grate it as you would cheese. This DIY is potent and works. Thanks for visiting 😀

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

    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…

    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.
