Natural Herbal Remedies For A Sore Throat

Sore throats are uncomfortable at best and downright painful at worst. They often go away on their own in a few days but sometimes they are a first warning that a cold is on its way. Fortunately, there are many herbal remedies to help soothe a sore throat and as an added bonus, many of them help to boast the immune system, making it stronger and more able to fight off any impending colds.

1. Ginger gargle: Steep about a teaspoon of ground ginger (Freshly ground from the ginger root is best) in about half a mug of boiling water. Let cool until warm, and then add a half teaspoon of honey and juice of half a lemon. Gargle. For an added bonus, follow up the ginger gargle with a cold pineapple juice gargle. Pineapple juice helps to remove dead tissue in the throat. Repeat throughout the day as needed.

2. Salt Gargle: Add about a teaspoon of salt to a glass of water and gargle with it at the first signs of a sore throat. Salt helps to clear the throat of mucus and is one of the oldest healing agents on Earth. A salt gargle should be done as often as possible as soon as a sore throat starts to develop.

3. Cayenne Gargle: Add a pinch of Cayenne to a cup of water and gargle. Cayenne is a very strong biting herb that makes the throat feel like it has been cauterized and helps to relieve irritation.

4. Blackberry or raspberry jam gargle and tea: Add a teaspoon of either blackberry or raspberry tea to a glass of water and gargle to help relieve a sore throat. You can also make a delicious and soothing tea by simply adding two tablespoons of jam to a cup of boiling water.

5. Beets: Grate up two fresh beets and place them in the middle of a folded towel. Place the towel around your neck and pin it safely in place. Be sure to place the towel so that the beets are against your throat. Leave in place until the beets turn green and than replace with fresh beets. Continue doing this until the beets no longer turn green. Be sure to use an old towel as beets stain.

6. Camomile Tea; A nice cup of camomile tea can do wonders for a sore throat, especially with a little honey and lemon added.

7. Marshmallow flower gargle and tea: Steep about one teaspoon of marshmallow flowers in a cup of boiling water. Strain and either use as a gargle or a tea. If drinking as a tea, a little honey is a nice addition.

8. Rosemary Tea: Take two tablespoons of rosemary and steep in a cup of boiling water for about ten minutes. Strain and add honey and a little lemon and enjoy.

9. Hydrogen Peroxide gargle: Combine two parts hydrogen peroxide with ten parts water and use as a gargle. Gargle with the mixture several times throughout the day. Be sure not to swallow any, as it is dangerous.

10. Cloves: Simply keep a clove (or a couple) in the back of your mouth for about 15 minutes. Bite lightly on the cloves to help release its oils. Cloves have a natural numbing agent that helps to soothe the throat. You can do this 3-4 times a day.

Having a sore throat is never fun and can really affect your sleep and productivity levels. Taking the time to gargle or enjoy a soothing tea can make a big difference. Adding a little extra garlic to your diet is also a great idea. The garlic will not bring you instant sore throat relief but it will boast your immune system and help you fight off any colds or other ailments that are causing the sore throat. Be sure to see a Doctor if the sore throat persist more than a couple of days or worsens.
