No. The liquids are lemon juice and coconut oil.

Quoting Bleacheddecay:

Raw Honey

Coconut oil

and

Lemon juice help a cough.

is there any water or some other kind of liquid that you mix with that?

 

When you have that nasty tickle cough that keeps you from falling asleep, take a spoonful of honey. It coats the throat long enough to let you fall asleep.

 This past year, I had a vericose vein that was throbbing like crazy. My MIL suggested that I put Vick's on it. The pain went away very shortly after it started. Worked great!

Oh, that's good to know! But, yeah, ew on the toenail fungus! LOL

My "hot toddy" for falling asleep:  I bring a cup of milk to almost a boil.  Then I add a tsp of sugar (not artificial sweetener), a 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract (not flavoring) then sprinkle the top with cinnamon &/or nutmeg.  This never fails to get me to sleep.  The warm milk is relaxing, the sugar raises then lowers your blood sugar level to make you sleepy & the vanilla extract has a tiny bit of alcohol.  The spices are aromatic & soothing especially cinnamon which will level blood sugar to avoid hunger.  If you are diabetic or can't have alcohol, just do the warm milk with cinnamon.

Honey, Limon and water in a bottle for coughs and it works great. Vinegar in the dishwasher for the rinsing agent thing. Coffee grounds mixed with water and a scrubber took off the thick grease build up on the bar b q. I too use vinegar and water for mirrors and Windows. Baking soda and washing soap for dishwasher soap(some use a Limon cutting agent to sparkle like cool aid).

Arm and hammer washing soda and borax (sorry had ingredients wrong)equal parts and it calls for citric acid half that. Like use I cup washing soda and borax then use half cup citric stuff. Some say use the lemmon kool aid, I don't use citric or koolaid and my dishes come out fine. But it may depend on water and temp. Just have to work with it.
