Homemade Decongestant

This homemade decongestant is good for breaking up chest congestion so you can clear it out. Anyone old enough to eat honey can take it.


  • 1 c honey
  • 1 c lemon juice
  • 5-7 radishes
  • 1 small red onion
  • 6 garlic cloves (If my cloves are super-small, I use a couple more.)


  1. Wash, peel, and trim the vegetables as appropriate, and cut the onion into 2-4 chunks.

  2. Dump everything into the blender and blend until smooth.

  3. Strain.

  4. Refrigerate between uses, for up to a week or so.

  5. TO USE:

  6. Adults take 2 T once a day, or more as needed/desired.

  7. Children take 1 T once a day, or more as needed/desired.

  8. Should begin expelling within 24 hours. (We have typically noticed it kicking in within the first couple hours.)
