Onion gargles or "onion teas" were often used to cure sore throats, be they of the bacterial or viral origin. Onions are high in sulphur, a natural component of sulfa antibiotics, and garlic in addition to being a good antiseptic against both viruses and bacteria, has proved to help boost the immune system and lower cholesterol.
Chop onions and garlic and place in a pan.
Cover with 16 ounces of water and simmer over a low heat for 30 minutes.
Take off heat and strain, reserving liquid.
Add salt, honey, lemon juice and cider vinegar. Gargle with about 2 tablespoons every 30 minutes.
