At the first signs of a cold, turn to a simple homemade tea recipe made with 100% natural, real food ingredients: honey, lemon, ginger, and mineral-rich salt. This tea, Soothing Honey and Lemon Sore Throat Tea, is soothing (thanks to the honey), boasts a healthy amount of Vitamin C (thanks to the lemon), helps relieve a sore throat (thanks to the anti-inflammatory properties, gingerols and shaogals, in ginger), and provides a touch of beneficial minerals to a tired body (hey, salt!). Pretty impressive for a cup of tea that costs about a buck (or much less depending on your ingredient prices) per cup and takes only 5 minutes to make. That’s my kind of natural remedy: simple and fast!
While this tea may be labeled sore throat tea, it can also be enjoyed as an immune-loving early morning drink (alongside coffee ;)), or just as an afternoon pick-me-up. No sore throat required!
