My Grandaughters both have terribly bad tonsilitis. One is small and one really hates medicine which would help soothe and settle the dreaded lumps. Making soothing lollies means they are fooled into having medicine!
I bottle of lemon squash ( low sugar ) or a bag of lemons
Half a jar of honey any will do but local is nicer
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
teaspoon of Glycerine
Water (If you used squash then follow advice on bottle )
Squeeze lemons and then grate a little lemon zest which will add flavour and add to large saucepan.
Add Honey , cinnamon, Glycerine and a pint and a half of water.
Boil mixture untill reduced a little. If its to sour add a little sugar or more honey.
Add to ice cube trays or lolly makers.
Germs cant live in Honey, cinnamon is anti bacterial and Lemon is chock full of vitamin C, Glycerine attracts moisture to its self and so keeps the throat moisturised. Ice lollies are lovely on a sore throat. Happy Children !
