Pour water and all ingredients except honey into a pan.
Bring to boil, turn heat down till you have a gentle boil then cover. Boil for 45 minutes to 1 hours. You want the liquid to be about half of what it originally was.
Remove from heat and let cool.
Pour through strainer into bowl. I have found a mini strainer from the dollar store works very well to get the smaller pieces out since the holes in it are much smaller then a normal strainer
Add raw honey into the cooled liquid, and stir well.
Store in mason jars in the fridge.
Take 1 tsp daily for children and 1 TBS daily for adults. When illness is starting we take our daily dose every 4 hours until the symptoms are gone.
