Cough & Sore Throat Home Remedy

That refreshing blast of chilly Fall weather I mentioned the other day brought coughs, sniffles, and sore throats along with it. My family has passed around a raging cold all week long. After a night of no sleep and half a bag of cough drops, I remembered a cough and sore throat home remedy I learned from my Mother-in-Law. It’s very simple and it does seem to help me when I have a dry, scratchy, irritated throat and cough. All you need is:
- 1 or 2 slices of lemon
- 1 tbsp. honey
- 1 or 2 tbsp. cider vinegar
- 6 to 8 oz. warm water
Mix the honey and vinegar into your warm water and finish it off with a squeeze or two of fresh lemon. It’s not the most pleasant tasting thing I’ve ever had, but it’s actually growing on me. These are the amounts I use, but you can play with them to suit your own taste. Now, I just wish I had a batch of my homemade chicken noodle soup made up!
