Lemon Honey Water: The Sore Throat Saver

Sore throats can really put a damper on things.
So don't let the cold season do that to you!
Sore throats are usually cause by mucous (yuck!) from a head cold going down your throat.
This mucous carries yucky bacteria being drained that can either irritate your throat, or give you an infection down in there (yikes!)

So what's a girl to do?
Well like everything I do, you add a little lemon.
Cause it like I always say, when life hands you a sore throat, make lemonade.
just kidding. ;)

It's simple:
Step 1: Heat up/boil water (like you are making coffee or hot chocolate)
Step 2: Add a Tablespoon of lemon juice (fresh, or bottled)
Step 3: Add a Tablespoon of honey (or more for taste)

Why it works:
Honey is a natural anti-bacterial/fungal.
It also coats the throat (like putting chapstick on dry lips)
Lemon is an anti-oxidant.
It also helps break down mucous.
& the hot water?
Well it relaxes your muscles and soothes the throat.
(Kind of like putting a heating pad on a sore back.)

Really... maybe we should drink lemon honey water all the time?
Let me know in the comments if you have any other cold remedies!
