Homemade cold/cough & flu syrup

You will need to find the following ingredients which can be found at a local health food store!

Base- 1 cup of raw honey
1 Tbs Echinacea purpurea (herb)
1 Tbs Echinacea Root (ground)
1 Tbs Slippery Elm bark (ground)
1 Tbs Ginger Root (ground)

Heat honey on medium heat until consistency is runny. Add the remaining ingredients and stir into honey, while turning to a low temperature. Make sure you stir often so the honey does not burn. Simmer for about 5 minutes. Then place a small metal strainer on top of jar and strain out the echinacea herb. Another option would be to grind the herb before placing into honey.
