Naturally Soothing a Sore Throat Tea Recipe

I had strep throat two weeks ago. It was pretty terrible so I went into the doctor. They swabbed my throat, confirmed it was strep then sent me off with a prescription and strict instructions to take all 10 days worth of the medicine. Spoiler alert: I lost track after about a week. I was feeling fine and just forgot (don’t do that please.) Anyways fast forward to now, and not only has my husband gotten strep, but I believe I’ve been re-infected by him. This led to him asking me to make my “tea” to soothe his throat. I realized I haven’t ever written this down before. This “sore throat tea” is simple, natural, delicious, and effective.

It’s also amazing for helping allieve allergy symptoms.

The sore throat soothing tea is made of only three ingredients: honey, fresh ginger root, and fresh lemon.

The ginger and lemon must be fresh. No substitutes.

If using to help with allergies, you must use local, raw honey.  This is what helps your immune system fight the allergens in your local area.   I am quite generous with the lemon and ginger. I used about 2 tbsp of fresh ginger, 1 lemon, and 6oz of honey. Really, I just chop up everything and dump honey over it until the container is full. This picture shows the consistency you want.

May this help all your allergies and sore throats! Or just be a tasty drink 🙂

Recipe Notes

This lasts in the fridge nearly forever. It is perfectly fine if the honey starts to crystallize. Use as before. It will all melt into the water regardless.
