How To Soothe A Sore Throat

Salt Water Gargle

This is a classic way to help soothe you’re sore throat. It is a very common method in the indian sub-continent. Basically get a warm glass of water. Add 1 tsp of salt. Mix until the salt dissolves. Then begin to gargle away! Some people say actually drinking the water works more effectively but I’m not sure I’d want to swallow it!

Apple Cider Vinegar

Yet another popular way to relieve you’re sore throat is with apple cider vinegar. It is rather potent so it is suggested that you mix with some honey and a little water. Use 2 tsp of applce cider vinegar, 2 tsp of honey, a small amount of lemon juice and add water to dilute. People usually find their sore throat is gone after a few hours.
