Mustard Gargle for Sore Throat Relief
I am an advocate of home remedies whenever appropriate, and in particular am on the lookout for recipes that treat common cold symptoms as the seasons start to change. This is not one I have tried out yet, but I will the minute I have a chance!
I have used other lemon and honey recipes to help with sore throats, as well as salt gargles to help relieve tonsillitis. This recipe that Rachel provides is a nice slant on the old standard.
- 1 Tbsp. mustard
- 1 Tbsp. salt
- 1 Tbsp. honey
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- 1 1/4 cups boiling water
Combine all ingredients and stir until blended. Allow the mixture to cool for 10 -15 minutes. Gargle and repeat as needed.
