Weleda Organic Cough Elixir is a safe, natural cough syrup which soothes airways, helps to loosen and expel mucus and reduces both wet and dry coughs without acting as a suppressant. The tonic is taken every few hours as-needed until symptoms are gone. It can be used in patients aged 2 and up.
The cough elixir is based on traditional medicines and fine-tuned with more modern understandings of biology and medicine. The process by which the tonic is made is also largely traditional; over three days the herbs are soaked, boiled as a decoction, mixed with raw sugar and malt for a syrup consistency, cooled, mixed with homoeopathic liquids, filtered, bottled and pasteurized. The product contains no artificial ingredients of any kind and has not been tested on animals.
Weleda Organic Cough Elixir can be used to manage both wet and dry coughs. Dry coughs, and the annoying tickle which often precedes them, are soothed as the tonic coats and cools the throat, reducing inflammation and irritation. Wet coughs are alleviated as the expectorant properties of the elixir loosen and help expel mucus. The resulting more productive coughs reduce the need to cough, as well helping the body eliminate the microbes or irritants contributing to mucus production. The reduction of inflammation also helps reduce mucus production.
There are a number of key ingredients which make Weleda Organic Cough Elixir so effective:

How to Use
