DO NOT MIX IT WITH BEER!!!

I did that last year. Bad idea. Wierd numb patches in different parts of my head, odd stoned feeling I've never experienced before (and I was young once, so...). Just overall, a really bad idea.....

Wax=outer coating. I'm guessing, Carnuba is a natural wax therefore works well in either situation. Wierd though. And listen to Mos, I've never tried it but I know its not a good idea.

We've always made our own cough syrup. It works better than any prescription syrup. When I was a very young child I had a cold/congestion that no doctor could seem to get rid of and then my aunt showed us the light. We call it the "remedy" , you make it in the spring time and let it sit in a cabinet until winter. It contains whiskey, cough drops, and honey. It will definately cure what ails you. It'll break up whatever is built up in your chest and you will feel better in no time at all. I swear by it.

Oil of Oregano, the good stuff, not the imitation stuff. You can get it online or any GNC.

Taste GOD AWFUL, but will cure any upper respiratory infection, ear ache, sinus problems. I know a person that had bad asthma, now doesn't even buy inhalers anymore because of this. Take it everyday to keep from getting sick. The best part is it'* a natural antibiotic, so bacterial infections don't get immunity from it, like man made antibiotics.

Had the same stuff, only we didn't let it sit. Try it the night it'* made. Stuff'll knock you off you off your feet.

My friend did this when he had a bad cold, not good. Now I can say that I have driven someone to the hospital to get stitches because he lost a wrestling match with a stool. LMFAO.
