Home Remedy Collection: Sore Throat Soother

Join me for a series on Home Remedies for Cold/Flu Season.
Part one....HERE!
This one comes from my sister, whom on a recent trip to China, discovered the wonders of Coca-Cola!  This helps soothe a sore throat and heck.. it just tastes good!
Of course these opinions are mine and sometimes you just need a doctor!

A mug of hot Coke paired with a Lavender Heat Bag!

In a saucepan, pour one can of coke over three or four large pieces of  sliced ginger.  Bring to boil.  Remove from heat and strain.  Pour into a large mug and drink it as you would drink tea.  This instantly relieves a sore throat.  AHHHHHH the wonders of Coca-Cola.

I give this a
*4 out of 5*
It actually works!
