The Only Sore Throat Remedy You'll Ever Need

Posted by Bikini Owner

Bikini Girl Recipe: Western Wild's Throat Coat
 
It’s that time of year where every flight, late night and public excursion leads to a dry, scratchy, soon-to-be-sore throat.
 
 
I’m not a big fan of cough drops, because I find if they work, they taste awful, and if they taste good, they don’t work. So I had resigned to a couple of raspy, uncomfortable days when I went to our local breakfast spot and found something they call “Throat Coat” on the menu.
 
The drink consists of eucalyptus tea, honey, ginger, lemon and cayenne pepper. I gave it a shot, and it definitely helped my throat, but the eucalyptus really wasn’t for me. I realize eucalyptus is considered, on it’s own, to have cold-fighting, anti-inflammatory properties — but it’s just not fun to drink.
 
So I took the rest of the ingredients and bought a few teas I thought would be a little more enjoyable, but would also nip that pesky scratchiness (or at least aid in immune boosting!).

What You Need

  • 1 tbsp honey
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • Yogi Echinacea Immune Support, flavored with ginger (so no need to add any), cinnamon, lemon, lemongrass and rose hip.

Directions

  1. Boil some water, pour into your favorite mug
  2. Add the ingredients, stir, and drink up
