You Will Need:-

  • 5 tsp of grated ginger
  • 1/4th cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup of honey
  • 4 - 5 tspof apple cider vinegar

Step 1

Take 5 teaspoons of grated ginger and put it in a clean bowl.

Ginger belongs to the same family of plants as turmeric and is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial agent capable of drawing out the inflammation in your respiratory tract and improving your appetite.

Step 2

Add ½ cup of raw honey to this and mix it well. Honey is great for sore throats as it coats the irritated area and reduces coughing spells.

Allow the ginger to infuse into the honey for at least 8 hours.

Make sure you cover the mixture with a lid to prevent contamination.

Step 3

Add 1/4th cup of extra virgin olive oil to this ginger-infused honey and stir well.

Just like honey, olive oil coats your throat and reduces soreness. Plus, it has less viscosity compared to honey and so is a great diluent.

Step 4

Add 4 - 5 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar to this mixture. Mix everything well.

Step 5

Take a sieve and strain out this mixture into a clean jar. Press into it with a spoon to aid the flow of the mixture.

Step 6

Store this in an air-tight jar in a cold, hygienic, and dry place away from direct sunlight. Use it within 6 weeks.

Instructions: Give the mixture a stir before having a spoonful at room temperature or slightly heated up. Have it three times a day for best results.
