A specialty for those suffering from sore throats, a steaming hot cup of tea is an excellent reliever (even if it’s only temporary). You can choose from any tea as long as it’s served hot; Earl Grey, Chrysanthemum or Green Tea, all the teas are at your disposal.

Perhaps the most low-maintenance of all the recipes, it’s a great alternative to antibiotics if you’re looking for a natural cure for your illnesses. Just make sure your tea is warm enough so it doesn’t aggravate your throat!
