I always hated cough syrups as they made me sleepy! Over-the-counter cough syrups do work but slowly and are not natural; here I mean they contain synthetic ingredients, and if you are a natural-buddy you certainly would like a natural alternative to it! Homemade cough syrups are all natural, work immediately and do not induce sleep!
