Home Made Cough Drops

Our mouths are a temple of magnificence. Did you know that saliva contains a painkiller stronger than morphine? No wonder kissing is so goddamn enjoyable. This ‘home-brew’ morphine is called opiorphin. Sadly we only produce reasonable amounts of opiorphin, but even a small bit can be mind-blowingly effective.

When we chew, we produce more saliva, and with it, more home-brew painkiller (horrah!). This can help explain why eating often alleviates a sore throat. A delicious paradox?

These simple cough drops (video below) are enough to ramp up your salivary defenses. Each one is designed to elicit a decent dose of GYO analgesic substances. On top of that, there’s a swag of sonic fresh ingredients – raw honey, organic virgin coconut oil, turmeric, ginger, probiotics. They put the super into superfood.

So give them a go. Here’s a video of the recipe I made with Bio Kult #collaboration. Aside from all that nutritional yahyah, they taste pretty cosmic.

Makes 20-30, depending on ice cube tray

1 small finger of fresh turmeric, peeled

Thumb-sized piece of fresh ginger, peeled

3-5 rough tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil

125g jar of raw honey (set is best)

Up to 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)

Twist of black pepper (adults only)

8 capsules multi-strain live bacteria supplement (I used Bio-Kult)

1 Finely grate the peeled ginger and turmeric and add to the bowl of a food processor. I find this process easier when using frozen ginger and frozen turmeric as it tends to be less fibrous. Itโ€™s not an exact science, so leave out the turmeric if itโ€™s tricky to find, or add more/less ginger to suit your taste buds.

2 Tumble in remaining ingredients and whip together until the mixture resembles body balm. Taste and see if you like it โ€“ adjust the spices to suit your preferences.

3 Using a plastic knife, spread the mixture into a silicone ice cube tray and freeze until set. You can transfer the lozenges into a marked glass jar and store in the freezer until needed. Then pop one in your mouth and party.
