How do you guys treat a sore throat? I usually take some honey and drink some warm water. I woke up with a sore throat and it feels way much better now after drinking honey several times. I hope I will be fine tomorrow morning.

That's weird. Never thought of it at all. I'll try it next time!

That is weirdly interesting. I do have some marshmallows though. No harm trying.

I don't really ever get sore throats, but when my daughter does she begs me to make onion syrup and it works for her.

Onion syrup. I have never heard of this before. How do you make it?

@holdoors It is something handed down by our family, you slice up onions add water and a little sugar and just steep it til it becomes a syrup. I have used it with all my kids, 8 of them. They always said it helped and they loved the taste!

I usually mix honey, lemon, and peppermint. Of course, everything I have read says it must be local honey to be the most effective. Lemon is awesome for any kind of illness. I eat them as snacks.

That sounds nice. I do not have any peppermint though.

I hope you be fine tomorrow morning too! I have never had success with any remedy for sore throat, and I just have to wait until it goes away.

I hope so too. I have a presentation in a few days time so I hope it will be okay before that.

Warm salt water gargle soothes it quite a bit. Like you have mentioned some honey, maybe mixed with lime, can also help

I will need to get some lime. We only have honey at home for now.

Sorry to hear that. You should try gurgle with warm water mix with salt. Then drink honey water.

My sister was also complaining of sore -throat yesterday. This remedy will work out. So I will tell her also to have honey.
