When winter weather causes a sore or irritated throat, why not try all-natural remedies instead of prescription sprays or syrups. Mix together this solution: 1 to 2 tablespoons of pure tea tree oil and 1 cup of water. Gargle with the mixture and spit. Be sure not to swallow. This can help fight germs and kill potential bacteria that may be causing your painful ailment.
For immediate relief, brew a cup of green tea. Add some lemon juice and honey for an all-natural remedy that tastes good and provides health benefits as well.
