Cayenne Pepper & Honey For a Sore Throat

Aw man, so we’re coming to the end of peak cold and flu season. Hopefully, you’re going into March healthy 💕 Sore throats have always been the first sign for me that I am getting sick. They hurt, they suck and sometimes take days to go away 😢 This method may sound crazy and painful but please trust me it works other than any cough drop I’ve ever had ✌🏻 Cayenne pepper gargle. Honey is excellent too, especially Manuka honey with high UMF ratings which I could do a whole other post about 🍯 What I usually do at the first sign of a sore throat is gargle with cayenne. I use about a 1/4 teaspoon of regular plain ole McCormick's cayenne powder in a shot glass amount of water. Then I gargle for seconds. Depending on how brave I am I either spit it out or swallow 😂 Chase it with a spoonful of honey and repeat whenever your throat feels sore. I say that because usually after the gargle your soreness will subside which is incredible I also really really love this brand of sore throat lozenges. They're a company out of Massachusetts dedicated to making cayenne and honey lozenges. They now have a new elderberry one too 💗 𝗜 𝗳𝗲𝗲𝗹 𝗹𝗶𝗸𝗲 𝗜 𝗻𝗲𝗲𝗱 𝗮 𝗱𝗶𝘀𝗰𝗹𝗮𝗶𝗺𝗲𝗿 𝘀𝗼 𝗹𝗲𝘁 𝗺𝗲 𝗷𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝘀𝗮𝘆.
