There is nothing worse than a sore throat. Besides being very uncomfortable, the pain usually makes us realize that a cold is well on the way. Fortunately, herbs such as ginger and sage can help us feel better.
Mix shredded fresh ginger with hot water, honey, lemon juice and a teaspoon of vinegar for a very effective gargle. Alternatively, a very strong sage tea (pour 1 cup pf boiling water over 2 teaspoons of dried sage and steep for five minutes) used for gargling helps to relieve the soreness and clogged up feeling.
