I usually use Oregano at times my kids have coughed. My daughter, the eldest, is used to it already while my boy is kind of annoyed in the taste but still I can manage to have him drink it.

Preparation is so simple. I just wash oregano leaves first then soak it in hot water. After 2 or 3 minutes I pick the leaves and extract the juice from it either by squeezing it or pounding it. When the oregano extract is ready, I usually give my kids few of sugar after drinking it to fight the after taste of oregano. I usually give my kids oregano extract 2 to 3 times a day for 3 days as my alternative medicine for cough. I found it effective and maybe you can try it in your kids.
