This throat gargle is a natural remedy worth keeping in mind in the upcoming winter months. Ginger has anti-inflammatory compounds that can soothe a sore throat, while lemon contains vitamin C that helps the body stave off sickness. Cayenne, on the other hand, is capable of reducing inflammation, similarly to honey, which is known for its antiseptic, antimicrobial, and soothing properties.
- Warm up the water enough to dissolve the honey. Then add the rest of the ingredients and give it a good mix. Set aside for five minutes.(5 minutes)
- Strain the liquid and transfer it to a cup before use.(1 minute)
Gargle this mixture twice a day or more if desired. Consider omitting cayenne pepper if painful, open ulcers are present in the mouth.
