Thyme Cough Syrup

This syrup is a staple in our house year round. My husband keeps a bottle at work, we have several bottles here at home and I often give it as a gift. This cough syrup is yummy and really does the trick, whether during cold and flu season, allergy season or whenever there is a dry, itchy, sore or crackly throat or cough.
