WFMW: Wild Indian Cherry Bark

Pin It Now!

I've tried a few different kinds of natural cough remedies in my 10 years of mothering, but so far, this is the best one I have found!

Old Indian Wild Cherry Bark Syrup

It's been a medicine cabinet staple for years now. It tastes horrible, but it really does seem to work for my kiddos.

I like the fact that it's made with herbs, and I can administer the syrup every 2 hours if needed. I buy it at Sprouts for under $10 for a 4 fl. oz. bottle.

* Honey is a listed ingredient, so it's not for children under one.

I also like to compliment the Old Indian Wild Cherry Bark Syrup with herbal cough/throat drops and eucalyptus essential oil (not orally).

For super bad coughs, I will rub Vicks on my kids' chests at night to ease symptoms and hope for a decent night's rest.

I won't take cough meds unless it's in a pill. They just taste so bad and I end up throwing them up anyway.

Awww, that's too bad, Jenny. I think my kids are just used to the taste. :)
