Honey Thyme for Colds and Flu

Stumble it!

By Cait Johnson, Assistant Producer, Care2 Healthy Living content.

Cold and flu season is upon us, but we have an ancient remedy for congestion, coughs, and Sore Throats that is simply the bees’s knees!

It calls for honey, the sweetest of healers, and Thyme, a wonderful herb with Antibacterial properties that had been used by Wise Ones for centuries to alleviate the miseries of colds and flus. Easy to make and delicious to use:


  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup fresh Thyme or 1/4 cup dried Thyme
  1. In a small saucepan, combine the two ingredients and heat gently over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, being sure not to let the honey boil or scorch.

  2. Remove from heat and allow the honey to cool. Strain out the Herbs, then bottle the honey and label it.

  3. To relieve colds, coughs, and Sore Throats, take 1 teaspoon of this Thyme-infused honey three times a day. You could also add a teaspoon of it to a cup of regular hot tea and sip slowly.
