I highly recommend this syrup. I use it every time I feel “seasonal distress” coming on and it works wonders. I even try to remember to pack this along when we go on vacations just in case someone gets sick, as it isn’t easy to find at your average drug or grocery store. A store clerk at Whole Foods recommended this syrup to me as one other customers found helpful when I was there looking for something non-toxic to give our kids when they were sick. It tastes great and seems to be made up of natural ingredients, like honey and licorice. We do try home remedies like tea with honey and lemon for sore throats, but the ingredients in this syrup seem to work better than any home remedy I have been able to concoct on my own so far. I try to never run out and keep a bottle in the house at all times.
