Flax jelly is the oldest herbal remedy known. It has stood the test of time. It helps with chest congestion, cough and sore throat.



  • 2 tbsp. whole flax seed
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 tsp Honey
  • 1 tsp Lemon Juice


  • Bring water and flax seed to a boil and simmer for 5 min.
  • Strain immediately and reserve the clear liquid.
  • Mix in honey and lemon juice.
  • Drink immediately, before it cools down and thickens


Make it just before you consume it. It thickens as it cools. If it cools too much the consistency is similar to egg whites, it is preferable to drink quite hot.
