Lasang Pinoy Sundays - Eye Candy


I am posting literal candies today. I chose these candies as they are perfect for winter, helps relieve coughs in this cold season! (pardon the partial translation)

White round candies: Traubenzucker (peach flavor)
Yellow candy: orange flavored
White oval candy: eucalyptus flavored

Hustenbonbons oder auch Halsbonbons sind in vielen Fällen hilfreiche Medizin bei Hals- und Rachenproblemen wie Halsschmerzen. Zwar gehören die Bonbons zu der Kategorie Süßware, unterscheiden sie sich jedoch von anderen Bonbons durch ihre Rezeptur.

Hustenbonbons sollen abschwellend und schleimlösend wirken und die Atemwege befreien. Je nach Rezeptur wird auch eine lokale Schmerzbetäubung angestrebt. Dies wird erreicht durch Verwendung ätherischer Öle wie dem des Eukalyptus oder der Minze oder aber durch Zugabe von Menthol. Des Weiteren kommen Extrakte aus anderen Heilkräutern wie zum Beispiel Salbei zum Einsatz.
Coughing drops/candies are in many cases a helpful "medicine" for throat (and neck) problems. They can be considered as sweets, but differs too because of their prescription.

Cough drops help removes swelling and loosens pleghm as well as free the respiratory system (air passage) from any blockage. Depending upon prescription it can also be locally concocted by the use of ethereal oils like that of Eucalyptus or Mint or by addition of Menthol. Some extracts from other herbs could be made into ointment.
