3 Simple Natural Treatments for Sore Throat

Sore throat relief

Sore throat relief

A while ago, I wrote something about relief sore throat in natural way. Today, I will talk about another ways you can try to relief the sore throat symptoms.

I understand itchy, swollen and tender throat is not only uncomfortable. It is pretty painful to the point of having difficulty in swallowing.

A sore throat can either be caused by a viral infection usually coming with colds, flu and cough or a bacterial infection accompanied by a throbbing head.

It can also be caused by other things like allergies, infected tonsils and throat abuse like excessive shouting and even coughing!

Whatever the cause is, a sore throat is brought about by an inflamed pharynx and should receive proper treatment. Here are a few home remedies for sore throat you can try at home.

  • Saltwater. Make saltwater by mixing in salt with a cup of lukewarm water. Gargle saltwater every now and then but no more frequent than per hour. Saltwater can help in swelling reduction. I emphasized this in my previous article.
  • Raspberry Tea. You can also use raspberry tea as gargle to relieve sore throat. Simply place 2 teaspoons of dried raspberry leaves in one cup of boiling water. Let it seep for 10 minutes and strain the dried leaves. Use as a gargle.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar. Combine 8 ounces of hot water, 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and 1 tablespoon of honey. Drink the concoction while it is hot. This drink has been a very popular home remedy for sore throat across countries. You can also make a gargle by dissolving 1 teaspoon of salt in 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar and mixing it with 1 cup of warm water.

Do Not Buy Lidocaine Before You Try Natural Sunburn Relief


Reddish color of Sunburn

Spent too much time out in the open? Whether you were aiming for that perfect tan or just trying to have a good time outdoors, too much sun exposure can lead to red sunburned skin.

Although sunburn does heal after some time, its initial phase will have to include pain and hot spots. Luckily, you can whip up sunburn relief from your very own kitchen and enjoy a pain free tan.

Soak up with baking soda. Simply add 4 tablespoons of baking soda or more to cool bath water. Soak in it for 20 minutes and air dry. Do not use a towel to dry your skin and do not remove the baking soda from your skin. Baking soda is a good sunburn soothing agent.

If you don’t have baking soda, try adding oatmeal instead. Just mix in 1/2 cup to 1 cup of oatmeal or oatmeal powder into your cool bath water and go for a 20 minute soak. Like baking soda, do not towel dry and make sure not to remove oatmeal from your skin.

Use aloe vera on your skin! Indeed, this classic remedy still works miracles. Simply slit open some aloe vera leaves and apply the gel onto your skin. Aloe vera helps soothe the pain brought about by sunburn and can help subside the reddish color of a sunburn.

Avoid direct expose to sun to reduce sunburn

Try applying cool milk to your sunburn. You can use a cloth or gauze. Milk helps ease the discomfort of sunburn by creating a protein film on your skin.

Take in plenty of fluids. Spending too many hours outdoors not only dehydrates and burns your skin but also dehydrates your whole body. Replenish lost fluids by taking in more water. This can also help sunburn heal faster.

No matter what, when you expose your skin under the sun, always take some nessasary protection from exposing directly to the sun such as wearing hat, long sleeves shirt etc. This can reduce the chances where your skin gets burn.
