This is my go-to remedy as soon as I start to feel that dreaded tickle in the back of my throat that says a cold is on the way. It's wonderful for full-on it hurts to swallow sore throats!
The taste, to me, is an interesting lemony-tart with a kick from the vinegar. My husband thinks it smells awful and tastes worse, which I find funny because I'm the picky eater of the family!
This is my own version of sore throat remedies that I found all over the internet quite a few years ago when I was suffering with the kind of pain in your throat that keeps you from sleeping. When even breathing hurts. Honey is fantastic for coughs and sore throats!
Apple cider vinegar is super healthy as well. Make sure to get the good stuff, with the "mother."
Simple, pretty tasty, and it works. It also feels lovely to sip something warm when you're sick!
|Raw honey, apple cider vinegar, and fresh lemons!|
Kim's Sore Throat Potion
2 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tbsp. raw honey
2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar with the "mother"
2 cups hot water
Mix well, until the honey is dissolved. I have a special mug that comes out for this purpose! For some reason, this little ritual brings a smile to my face.
Give it a try and let me know what you think! Yea or nay? Yummy or terrible?
I've often made hot lemon honey water when we're sick (and even when we're not - it's tasty!) but never with the addition of vinegar! I'll have to tuck that away for next time!ReplyDelete
And I love finding kindred spirits, too!! In fact when someone uses that phrase, I have learned they usually are one! ❤️
