I woke up at 2 this morning with one heck of a sore throat (sinuses draining). It hurt to swallow, I couldn't fall back to sleep, I kept drinking water but it wasn't helping. I decided to get up and try honey. Thankfully I had stopped at the natural store last week and had some local raw honey on hand. I ate a teaspoon full and almost instantly felt relief. I felt well enough to fall right back to sleep.
It's funny because I've never tried it but keep trying to get my kids to try it when they complain of a sore throat, lol.
I'm sitting here sipping some organic tea with honey it to help me even more while I wait for the rest of the water I boiled to cool, so I can use it for the sinus rinse.
