Simple Homemade Sore Throat Remedy

How often have you found out that "simple is best"? Well, here's another great example . . .

As cold, sinusitis & flu season descends upon us, I have found a truly amazing, blessedly simple sore throat remedy with ingredients that are probably already in your cupboard. Only 2 items: honey & tumeric.

Always buy local honey whenever possible. Honey is not only the preferred sweetener of many, but it is antiseptic, anti-inflammatory & anti-bacterial. (**Got a terrible cystic blemish? Before you go to bed put a drop of honey on it, cover with a band-aid & wake up in the morning with NO pimple!!!)

Tumeric is also antisecptic, anti-inflammatory & anti-bacterial. Many take it for their liver, arthritis, as a paste or in a salve for healing wounds & even for up-set stomachs.

But for a sore throat there are 2 ways you can take it:
1) 1 ts honey completely covered with a thick dusting of tumeric. Swallow all at once.
2) 1 ts honey & 1/4 ts tumeric mixed into a sort of paste. Lick the spoon slowly so that it can coat the throat.
~Repeat as often as you need, day or night.

Which ever way you use this, it is a wonderfully powerful throat soother, healer & actually heals & builds immunities.

  1. Wow, thanks for sharing!! I am going to tell Kayleigh about the honey on a pimple, that's just too cool! We've been trying to find good all natural stuff for her teen face, that actually works.

  2. Thank, Kim, & don't forget to try my oily skin face wash. The BEST I've ever used. I'll never use anything else. http://marmeespantry.blogspot.com/2010/01/homemade-facewash-oil-skin.html

  3. Kim, thanks for sharing, We bought some awesome local wildflower honey from "The Coop Keeper"
    ( site on sidebar of my blog) and it has healed a "comin On" of flu symptoms for me...now I can add tumeric to soothe a sore throat...This kind of information is why my blog name is "Blessing the Elements"...meaning use what God has given us...
    ~~Peace & Love & Healing & Blessings~~

  4. Thanks for all the information I loved the suggestions. I am going to try the honey ones for sure. Blessings to you for the great advice today.

  5. Great advice. Local honey is supposed to help with allergies as well. You'd think I would have purchased some by now for mine :) Also, honey is an excellent cough suppressant. I will have to try the tumeric, I'm not sure I have that in the pantry.
