This Honey Lemon Throat Soother will not only soothe sore and scratchy throats but also has some antimicrobial, antiviral and antioxidant properties to help beat your cold or flu. This recipe is allergy friendly (gluten, dairy, shellfish, nut, egg, and soy free) and suits the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) and Paleo diets.
1 large Lemon, juiced
1 – 2 inch knob of Ginger, thinly sliced
1 – 2 inch knob of Turmeric, thinly sliced
1 Cinnamon Sticks, broken in half
1 tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 cup Manuka Honey
Add all the ingredients to a small mason jar.
Shake and then put in the fridge for 24 hours.
The honey will become thin and ready to use once it’s combined. You’ll need to shake the jar occasionally to keep it from settling.
To use add a few tablespoons to a cup of tea or a teaspoon as needed to soothe a sore throat or tame a cough.
This lasts for about 3 weeks in the fridge.
