An Easy Natural Home Remedy for Sore Throat
An Easy Natural Home Remedy for Sore Throat by Miles Tyler
At some time or other we all suffer from the nastiness of waking up with a sore, scratchy throat. The following is a cure that I came up with six years ago and it never fails to work for me. I try to do this as soon as I feel a sore throat coming on. It not only alleviates the pain but it actually cures the throat by killing the infection before it gets worse. The secret is in the key active ingedrient, tea tree oil, which is a natural antiseptic that is good thing to have on hand. Now on to the cure.
What you will need:
An 8 ounce glass.
Very warm but not completely hot water.
3 teaspoons of sea salt.
1-3 drops of tea tree oil.
First you need an 8 ounce glass of fairly warm water, not very hot but hotter than luke warm. Do not fill it to the top. Fill it a little over three quarters of the way full.
Next Your Stir in 3 teaspoons of sea salt until it dissolves.
Then you add 1 to 3 drops of tea tree oil. You will want to add more or less depending on how badly your throat is hurting. No less than one and no more than three drops. Do NOT over do this. Tea tree oil is very potent. Remember that only a little is necessary for the antiseptic effect to work properly. After it is mixed gargle vigorously but do NOT swallow as tea tree oil is not to be taken internally. This is another reason why you want to only use the smallest amount necessary. Continue to gargle and spit until the glass is empty. Repeat every four to six hours if necessary.
