Cough & Sore Throat Lozenges

Make your own lozenges!  Homeopathic, herbal remedies have been used for centuries to treat the symptoms of the commom cold.    

For homemade lozenges, just make hard candy by following either the stove-top or microwave recipe.  Flavor the candy with one of the  flavoring combinations suggested below or create one of your own!  Pour into a candy mold (such as Candy Discs, Hexaganal break-up mold, even the Teddy Bear Pieces mold for the kids) or make hard candy suckers using one of our many Lollipop Molds.
