“Mom, my throat hurts!”
How many times have you heard that as a mom?
Usually the first sign of illness is a sore, scratchy, sometimes hoarse throat. It’s that uh-oh moment that tells you that you had better build up your immune system quickly if you want to stay well.
There’s a joke in my house that if anyone sneezes, they had better run because mom will be coming after them with some remedy or another.
One of my favorite ways to soothe a sore throat is DIY Sore Throat Tea. It combines warming, soothing herbs to help ease sore throat pain. This blend is great for kids and adults, but leave out the sage and licorice root if you’re pregnant or nursing. This tea is best taken warm or as hot as one can stand, to really soothe the throat.
Here’s what herbs you’ll need. I get the Frontier brand or purchase from Mountain Rose Herbs.
1/2 part cinnamon bark
1 part marshmallow root
1 part dried sage
1 part calendula flowers
1 part licorice root
1 part wild cherry bark
