Winter is going to be here before you know it and with it, those sore throats so many of us, especially our children, seem to come down with. When you come right down to it, a sore throat is a big pain in the…OK, it’s a pain in the throat is what it is, and they can hurt like the devil!

Just mix, drink, and experience the sweet, all natural, relief from that oh so annoying sore throat. Even your kids will like these!


1. Save For Later Sore Throat Tea

This is a great one to mix up now, put in the fridge, and take it out when you need it. It’s good for about 3 months, so make it up in October, and it will see you through until the New Year!

Choose a mason jar or some other type of glass jar with a lid. Cut up lemon slices about ¼ inch think until it fills about half of the jar. Take a one inch piece of fresh, organic peeled ginger and slice it into thin pieces. Now if you love ginger, feel free to add a bit more, if ginger is not your thing, then add a bit less. Now fill the remainder of your jar with raw, organic honey. Be certain of the honey you are using, as a lot of “honey” that is being sold in most supermarkets is only honey flavored high fructose corn syrup. Once you are done, mix it up a bit, then place it in your refrigerator until it has a jelly like consistency. (About 48 hours)

That’s it! When you need some of this, boil some water and place about a teaspoon of this mixture into a mug. Add boiling water, and enjoy. Don’t worry if you pick up a lemon or ginger slice and it gets added into your cup, so much the better! This is a real winner you will be telling all your friends about before the winter is over.

Important Note: NEVER give this tea, or anything containing honey, to infants under one year of age.
