I have been doing this natural sore throat remedy to help relieve the pain and uncomfortable feeling of a sore throat and minor cough for years. This has helped me significantly, and I hope that it will help you too! The good thing about this simple remedy is that it is all natural and vegan. You can also tweak this recipe a little to fit your taste by adding just a teaspoon or two of agave nectar to help sweeten the mixture. You don’t want to add too much though, because you want the acid to do it’s job as it coats your throat. 🤧
**As always, please check with your doctor for any concerns, and/or medical emergencies.**
Here’s what you will need:
- 1 tbsp Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar with ‘Mother’
- 3 Fresh Mint Leaves
- 1/2 tsp Lemon Juice
Pour the apple cider vinegar into a teacup.
Smash the mint leaves into the apple cider vinegar. This step is done to release the essential oils and natural essence of the mint.
Add in the lemon juice and you’re done!
Benefits and Advantages
Apple cider vinegar has acetic acid in it which is useful for killing many types of harmful bacteria.
Mint is used to help relieve cold and flu like symptoms. The menthol which is found in peppermint oil, is used in many cold and flu medicines. Menthol is also used to alleviate pain and congestion.
The acid in lemon juice acts as an antiseptic for killing bacteria and germs. It is also loaded with anti-inflammatory enzymes.
For an added benefit to relieve your sore throat pain, add a cup of hot water and enjoy it as lemon mint tea.
I hope this helps. Get well soon!😁
