I’ve been sick. A lingering cold combined with a feels-like-I-swallowed-razor-blades sore throat has been challenging.
Thankfully, I’ve only put up with the searing throat pain each morning for a few minutes. Why? Because I make an amazing (but disgusting-tasting) sore throat remedy that always cuts through the irritation immediately.
The best part is, I use everyday pantry items you probably have on hand right now. So, no trips to the drugstore are needed! Whew!

Sore Throat Remedy Recipe
To make the magic drink, simply add 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 cup of very warm water to a mug. Stir and drink quickly. Sometimes I add a teabag to mask the bitter flavor.
After you finish the drink, you’ll immediately notice less pain in your throat. This relief will last for hours, if not the whole day. If your throat hurts again in a few hours, make another drink.

Cut up an onion and then cover it with honey and let it sit for a few hours .
Take a spoon or two of the liquid every few hours – always cures my sore throat.
Thanks, Ann! That sounds simple AND natural. I love it! I will try this next time I get sick. Thanks! ~Angela
