One of my favorite homemade alternative medicines to make for sore throats is my lemon honey sore throat syrup. It’s very simple to make and very effective when it comes to soothing and healing a sore throat naturally.
The ingredients you will need to make my homemade lemon honey sore throat syrup are 1 cup of honey, 5 tablespoons of lemon juice, 3 drops of peppermint oil, and 10 drops of Echinacea and goldenseal liquid extract. You can usually find all these ingredients in your local herbal store and grocery store. The reason I use these natural ingredients is because lemon juice contain vitamin C which is important for boosting the immune system and relieving inflammation. Honey helps treat bacterial and viral infections and contains antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins that help support the immune system, soothes a sore throat and even coughing. Peppermint oil helps add some direct cooling and soothing relief on the throat, and Echinacea and goldenseal liquid extract helps boost and protect the immune system while relieving inflammation that is causing the sore throat to begin with and it is simply just a natural pain reliever.
The materials you will need to make my homemade lemon honey sore throat syrup are measuring cups; measuring spoons, a small mixing spoon, and a glass jar with a lid. If you do not have these materials in your kitchen you should be able to find them at your local dollar store or kitchen store.
