3. Honey and Lemon
Honey is one of the best options for combating a sore throat and is regularly recommended among other ingredients. Honey will soothe the throat instantly as it coats it and lubricates it. What’s more is that honey may be effective at releasing some of the effects of allergies such as hayfever naturally.
Moreover, honey is hypertonic, meaning that it will draw out the excess fluid from inflamed tissue (i.e. it is anti-inflammatory!).
The lemon is useful because it can alter the pH balance of the throat. The microbes that cause diseases are highly sensitive to these changes and this can actually kill off the germs.
