Homemade remedy for a sore throat


  • 2 inch fresh ginger
  • 2 inch cinnamon bark
  • 5-6 peppercorns
  • 4 cloves
  • 2 cups water
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • Honey- to sweeten as per taste


  1. In a pan, pour the water and boil the ginger, cinnamon, peppercorns and cloves on a low flame for 15-20 minutes. {If you can grind all the ingredients, (minus the water)the juice from the ginger, cloves and pepper will mix better.}
  2. The color of the water should darken and the water should reduce to about 1 cup.
  3. Set aside and once cool, squeeze a lemon, take a tsp of the juice, mix with a tsp of honey and a tbsp of the concoction. Have this mixture at least every 3-4 hours for 1-2 days and see the difference! (You can also dilute the concoction with water and serve it with lemon juice and honey like a brewed tea.)
