Natural Home Remedy For Sore Throat

“Winter Is Coming” cue the opening theme tune of Games of Thrones ๐ŸŽถ ๐ŸŽถ

Sorry that was too hard not to say, but as you all know that we are only a few weeks away from actual cold temperatures here in the UK ( if I’m being honest I think anything below 27 degrees is cold).

With the change in temperatures also comes a whole array of people getting a little sick with the common cold/flu.

Personally I have always relied on home remedies to help ease some of the symptoms of the cold. I just think its a more clean way of getting your body better.

After returning from a trip to LA I started feeling a little run down, for me I know I am about to get sick if my throat starts feeling sore.

So as I was suffering I had my mother in law who shared with me one of her home remedies and all I have to say is that it worked like magic. Which is why I think I should share this motherly wisdom with you all.


Note there are no specific amounts here all of the quantities depend on your preferences.

Cumin- A natural Anti-Inflammatory.

Cinnamon Sticks- A good bacterial killer

Cardamom- Great for mouth related symptoms e.g mouth ulcers, bad breath.

Black Peppercorns- Painkiller and help boost the absorption of nutrients.

Mint- My fav herb in the entire world and also jam-packed with benefits e.g help build up your immune system, Improves Mental Awareness and Focus.

Honey- A natural healer and perfect for coating a sore throat.

White Pepper- An Anti-Inflamatory and great at clearly toxins.


  • Boil some water in a pan and lower the heat. Take your ingredients and put into the water. Let this simmer on low heat for at least 10 to 15 min.
  • Separately you take a cup and put honey then a pinch of white pepper.
  • Take the water with herbs and spices off the stove and using a tea strainer pour into the cup.

I have found drinking this once/ twice on a daily basis for atleast 3 days helped with my throat. It not only cleared up my sore throat but stopped my cold in its early stages.

I hope me sharing the above remedy helped any of you. I am curious to know would any of my followers prefer me sharing some recipes?
