( I bring back this post from 2017 because everyone in my house is coming down with some sort of late summer cold, leading me to make this a lot this past week so I thought I’d share just in case I’m not the only one fighting off congestion. )
I woke up with a sore throat and head congestion that couldn’t be denied. I felt it coming on for about a day but somehow thought if I didn’t acknowledge it then I would stay healthy. Everyone around me have been dropping like flies so I should have known better.
As I got out of bed there was no denying it, I was sick. My mind went back to a Pinterest picture I had seen a while ago on a sore throat and congestion remedy that was supposed to be fast acting. I thought no time like the present to try it out and hopefully it might help.
I am sad to say that I don’t remember the person who posted it but if you are out there let me know so I can give you credit for this home remedy. I mixed it together and not only did I feel I could swallow again without feeling every part of my poor sore throat, but my congestion is some better. So, kudos to who thought this up, it works great!!! If you can get past the taste, it is SO worth it.
2 Tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar
2 Tablespoon of Lemon Juice
2 Tablespoon of Honey
I warmed up the vinegar then mixed in the honey and lemon.
