What you will need:

  • pinch of salt
  • warm water
  • shot or small glass

What to do:

  1. 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.
  2. Add a pinch of salt and mix well.
  3. Gargle several times with this mixture as long as you can and until the glass is empty.
  4. Repeat several times per day, ideally 3 to 4 times.

In conclusion:

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!
