"An effective syrup that encompasses all five of the tastes in Traditional Chinese Medicine (pungent, salty, sour, bitter, and sweet).

Elderberry (Sambucus nigra, S. cerulea, S. canadensis) – Sour

Elderberries are really high in antioxidants and are commonly used to shorten the duration of a cold or flu. In one study, people with the flu who took elderberry had their symptoms relieved four days earlier than those taking a placebo.1 Like most fruits, elderberries are classified as having a sour taste.

Elecampane (Inula helenium) – Bitter & Pungent

Herbalists use the root of this plant and it has both a decidedly bitter and pungent taste with a hint of sweetness (due to its high inulin content). Elecampane is famous for strengthening the lungs and is especially used for congested coughs.

Plantain (Plantago major, P. lanceolata, P. rugelii, P. rhodosperma, P. virginica) – Salty

If you tasted a fresh leaf of plantain, you wouldn’t think it tasted salty but, apart from the mild bitterness of the leaves, it has a hard mineral taste that is due to the high mineral content (similar to kale). Plantain is a fantastic herb for general coughs, and it excels at soothing irritated mucous membranes such as the throat and lungs.

Hyssop (Hyssopus officinalis) - Pungent

Energetically hyssop can be explained as a warming and stimulating herb with a pungent taste. We use it to warm up the body and get things moving! Think of it for moving stagnation like stuck mucous, delayed menses or congealed blood (bruises).

As a stimulating diaphoretic it warms the body, pushing out coldness and opening the pores. This is especially ideal for when a person feels cold and is shivering with a slight fever.

Hyssop is perfect for coughs with congested mucus. It both stimulates mucus and expectorates mucus, which enables the lungs and coughing mechanisms to rid it from the body.

Herbalist Nicholas Schnell recommends hyssop for chronic sinus infections.

Honey – Sweet

Rounding out the ingredients for our herbal cough syrup recipe is honey. Besides the wonderful, sweet taste that makes this blend more palatable, honey is high in enzymes that are believed to stimulate the immune system. It’s also a mild expectorant and has been shown to be a safe and effective way to address children’s coughs."
