Getting a sore throat is extremely annoying. It is painful, makes speech and swallowing difficult and hampers day to day function. A simple home-made drink can soothe the throat.

Put a cup of water in a small saucepan on medium heat. Add half a teaspoon of honey and a small stick of cinnamon. You may even add one or two leaves of lemon grass. Bring this to a gentle boil and consume it two to three times a day. Sore throat will be cured in a jiffy.
If there is severe cold, cough and infection, this remedy may not work and medical attention is advised.
