Happyhomemaker88’s Effective, Soothing, Natural Cough Syrup Recipe

Cough Remedy Hi there, dear friends :D 

Last year, I came up with  a homemade soothing cough remedy using natural ingredients for my eldest son, who was having a really bad cough that didn’t get better despite having visited our family doctor twice and completing two rounds of antibiotics. 

Hearing him coughing every minute or so made me so worried that I started looking up the Internet for home remedies for coughs – anything that could help quickly to alleviate my son’s coughing fits. I found many natural cough remedies and with what ingredients I have in my kitchen, I quickly concocted a cough syrup for my son to see if it would  give him some relief. Well, it worked very well indeed!

I was happily amazed to find that his persistent cough did reduce quickly to just the occasional cough or two, and best is, he could sleep through the night without any coughing.

I even tested my cough syrup on my skeptical husband when he had bad coughing fits last month. His phlegmy cough got much better just after drinking it once at night before sleeping. The next day at work, his colleagues even asked him for my natural cough remedy recipe when they saw how his cough has lessened a lot so quickly. 

Yesterday, my husband started coughing badly again,  a dry cough this time. I was surprised that he asked me to make him some my homemade cough syrup right away.

Seeing as how effectively my cough syrup can really soothe a dry or phlegmy cough, and give a good night’s sleep without much coughing, I am sharing here with you my recipe for a homemade, effective, natural cough syrup (it is adapted from the various cough remedies I found online).    Read the rest of this entry »

Energise Your Home &/Or Business Office To Attract Wealth & Good Luck – Bird Release Ceremonies & Prayers For God Of Wealth On Eve Of Chinese New Year – 18 February 2015

Year of the Goat 2015

Year of the Goat 2015

Hi there, dear friends :D

This year’s lunar Chinese New Year (CNY) of the Goat will fall on 19 February, 2015, and preparations have started to prepare my home to welcome the new, auspicious energies for the lunar new year. 

One of the rituals we do yearly is to have Master atan perform Bird Release Ceremonies (BRCs) and the God of Wealth Prayers/Blessings to invite Good Luck and Wealth into our home, so that everyone in the family will enjoy a lucky, successful, smooth, safe, healthy and fruitful year with an abundance of good things. 

Nowadays, the younger generation (even mine) are not too familiar with doing the proper rituals or prayers to attract luck and wealth to us, and therefore, I like to have a Master do the right thing for my family. 

If you feel that the past year in 2014 had been unfortunate and rocky for you, you can try out Master atan’s CNY BRCs to change your luck. They have been requested from people of various religions from all over the world –>

Give Your Beloved Pets Natural, FOOD GRADE Diatomaceous Earth (DE) For Good Health & Good Fur, And As An Organic Dewormer & Organic Ticks/Fleas Remover

Baby & Benji  DE

Hi there, dear friends :D 

A few months ago , I wrote about Diatomaceous Earth HERE and how wonderful its health benefits were for humans.  

Although there were hardly any scientific studies done on the effects of DE on people, DE has long been in use to promote healthy livestock, animals and pets in farms and homes. 

After a week of ingesting DE for my family, I also started feeding some DE to my cat, Baby, and my beagle, Benji. Now, if only animals could talk, Baby and Benji would be able to tell me how DE affected them…but since they can’t, LOL,  I will write about my observations on them since I put them on DE for the past 2 1/2 months .
