With all the sickness that has plagued our household, the kids were starting to become immune to OTC cough meds! I can only give them so much before it stops working - especially when the sickness circulates through all the kiddos for weeks.
This is my latest finding in sore throat remedies that ACTUALLY WORKS!
Not only does honey have an enzyme that actually heals inflammation, it coats the throat. Sage also has antiviral properties (just learned this) and is a great addition to the honey. I use raw local honey because a lot of the commonly store-bought brands are often processed so much that they lose all their goodness & nutrients in the high heat of pasteurization.
Simmer (on low) some organic sage leaves in
enough honey to cover the leaves for almost 1 hour. Strain, and pour into bottles. Take 1-2 teaspoonfuls throughout the day as needed for sore throats!
That's it! Medicine in a minute! And its not so dangerous that you have to worry about giving them too much! Just don't give it to babies under one year. Salud!
