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.
1Stir 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!
