Customer testimonial to linseed for coughs

We were interested to get this testimonial and recipe as we have had other customers swearing by linseed tea for even the most persistent coughs.

The cough remedy recipe from Jo:

“I have a recipe, well it’s sort of a recipe. It’s what I take when I have a cough or sore throat, like now. 🙁

Boil 2 tablespoons of linseeds in 2 cups of water until the liquid turns to a glue like consistency. Takes probably about 5 minutes. strain the linseeds out, and add a good squeeze of lemon juice and 2 teaspoons of honey, drink when still warm. I take it twice a day, it’s very pleasant.

Kind regards

Jo”

Note: if when you make this it seems a bit too gloopy to drink just add a little extra hot water to itto make it thin enough to enjoy the drink.
