Not every sore throat requires a trip to the doctor, but over-the-counter remedies can be pretty pricey. Tipnut has put together a list of 12 sore throat remedies that you can make with ingredients that you’re likely to already have on hand.
Here are a few examples of some of Tipnut’s sore throat remedies:
- Cayenne Pepper Gargle – Mix an eight teaspoon of cayenne in a half cup of warm water and gargle. Mix it up and use it frequently during the day.
- Salt Water – This is a common remedy, and it works! Just gargle a mixture of one tablespoon salt and one cup of water every two hours.
- Honey and Lemon – Mix together one teaspoon of lemon juice and two teaspoons of honey with a cup of boiling water. Cool slightly and drink to soothe sore throat pain.
Most of these remedies contain ingredients that will kill any bacteria in your throat while also soothing inflamed tissue — all without any potential side effects like over-the-counter remedies may have. These remedies are safe and effective.
