Soothe That Sore Throat!- Honey Lemon Tea

Whether it is from a cold, strep, or just a change in the weather a sore throat is no fun. When I work up this morning ,I was under the weather with a wicked sore throat. I remembered this home remedy from my childhood. The good old lemon and honey for a sore throat.

If you have a sore throat give this a try. The honey is soothing and comforting while the lemon is antibacterial and boosts your immune system with a shot of vitamin C.

* 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon
* 1 cup water
* 1 chamomile tea bag or equivalent in loose chamomile tea
