sore throat and honey

Me and my boyfriend both have very sore throats and I think my 2 year old to she's whining that she hurts. I know there is a home remidey with honey or honey with tea to help soothe...anyone know? We have already taken cough medicine and tylenol and cough drops.

  • you can drink chamomile tea with honey in it or just swallow a teaspoonful of honey. they used to sell something called honey cough when i was growing up but now they stopped, it was the best stuff ever!

  • honey tea, or lemon tea with honey, anything hot even just water hot, and honey mixed into that.
    I don't know lately but just lots of fluids and soups, and tea (caffeine or non.)

    And rest

  • Hey anon at 8 31.. Get a life haha. Thanks for my one serious answer tmn. Do I warm the honey?

  • Honey and lemon, slightly warmed is ok, but you don't have to.
    Apple cider vinegar if you can keep it down (its nasty, imo)

  • I usually make a cup of tea in the preferred flavor (we all have different favorites), add a bit of lemon juice to cut mucous and honey to soothe the throat. I add a shot of whiskey to mine and my husbands, if we're in for the night, too.

  • honey is antibacterial; cayenne pepper is anti-inflammatory. mix equal parts for a great cough and throat soothing syrup
