At the very first signs of a sore throat, there is a very quick and easy solution to get rid of it naturally. But remember, the quicker you act, the better the chances! So try to make this method a reflex as soon as your throat starts bothering you.
What you will need:
- pinch of salt
- warm water
- shot or small glass
What to do:
- Fill a shot glass with warm water. If you don’t have a shot glass just take a normal glass and fill the bottom of it with the equivalent of 3 fingers.
- Add a pinch of salt and mix well.
- Gargle several times with this mixture as long as you can and until the glass is empty.
- Repeat several times per day, ideally 3 to 4 times.
The salt water mixture will immediately relieve your sore throat. If you cannot bare the taste, try replacing the salt with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar or with a few drops of tea tree essential oil. They will all kill the bacteria in your throat.
Also, in between the gargling, make yourself a sage herbal tea by pouring boiling water in a teacup with 2 sage leaves. Chewing the sage leaves directly in your mouth is another option. Sage is known to relieve a sore throat as well. And of course don’t hesitate to add honey to your diet, as you fight that sore throat!
