This is my go-to remedy for a sore throat or cough. It WORKS!! Immediate relief, and with consistent use, actually shortens the duration of the cold.


juice of 1/2 to 1 lemon-at least one tablespoon
a good squirt of honey-to taste, but at least 1 teaspoon
pinch of cayenne pepper-no more than 1/8t.

Directions Step-By-Step

Stir together and drink. It will burn a bit for just a moment, but then you feel instant relief from the sore throat! You'll know when it's time to repeat the dosage-usually 2-4hrs. because your throat will start to hurt again!

Our family uses this remedy for sore throats and chest colds also. The only difference is the addition of 1 cup of chicken stock and our recipe (handed down from a woman born and raised in Alaska)also reads: "As much Cayenne Pepper as you can stand."

My wife takes a teaspoon of honey sprinkled with cinnamon every single day. Cinnamon is very good for you. Also, I was told to purchase your honey in the area where you live and regular use will relieve allergies. I have found it does help.
