Weleda Cough Elixir provides assitance for the relief of wet and dry coughs. Effective for a range of coughs. Helps soothe and relax the throat and chest, decrease mucous formation and aid expectoration. Cough Elixir is not a cough suppressant. The cough is a protective mechanism for clearing breathing passages, which we do not try to suppress. 
Althaea (Marshmallow root), Pimpinella (Aniseed), Drosera (the Sundew), and Ipecacuanha act together to help soothe irritated mucous membranes in the throat and chest, by reducing inflammation and relaxing constricted muscles. Plantago (Plaintain), Thymus (Thyme) and Marrubium (Horehound) are expectorants, helping to break up and eliminate mucous. Inula (Elecampane) helps relieve chest congestion.

Weleda Cough Elixir is manufactured using traditional herbal methods over three days. The dried herbs are soaked overnight, and then boiled as a decoction. Raw sugar and malt are added to produce a syrup, and upon cooling the homoeopathic liquids are added. After filtering, it is bottled and pasteurised. The raw sugar softens the herbal taste and acts as a preservative.


Take one 5mL teaspoon (child) or two 5mL teaspoons (adult) in warm water up to every two to three hours, or as directed by your health care professional.
Reduce the frequency of doses and then stop taking the remedy as relief is obtained.


Diabetics should be aware of the sugar content.
Seek professional advice before giving any medicine for coughs to children under 2 years.
If coughing persists, consult your health care professional.

This is the cough mixture that my three grandchildren like to take, even in the middle of the night if they have a coughing fit. The elixir as it states in the information is definitely soothing and expectorant and they like the taste.

I'm not usually one to believe in cure alls, but this elixir has been superb every time one of my children has had a cold or cough. Regardless of whether it is a wet or dry cough, it has stopped it and provided relief. And they love the taste! I even tried it during a random bout of the flu- my first in about 15 years- and it was awesome. I'm a convert. A must have in our first aid kit :)

I bought this for my 2 year old son who had a dry, irritating cough. Though he didn't like the mixture diluted with water, he was happy to just take a teaspoon of it. It definitely helped relieve his cough so I'm a big fan of this now.

Great natural cough syrup including herbs & homeopathic ingredients and no nasty sweeteners or preservatives. Found this great for myself and my little one. During my last cold, I was having problems bringing up the mucus (sorry!) which was making me cough so much. Just shortly after taking this I found it much easier to clear it. Great stuff and my little one likes the taste too.

Fantastic product suiting the whole family. under two's seemed to prefer it in warm water when older children prefer it pure. Calm down coughing and help them having a good rest in the night. I have always some in the medecin cupboard. An absolute essential.
