I made cold and cough pills and syrup. My husband has been using these remedies for three days and felt a relief right away, and was 50% better after 2 days.
And, it smells wonderfull and taste very good.
I also bought her other book Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health and I'm also very happy with it. Those books work well together.
