Soak 3 tbsp of freshly grated ginger in a pint of hot water for 5-8 mins. Strain and drink before bedtime. Add lemon juice if sore throat is accompanied by chesty cough. Drinking the ginger infusion throughout the day and at bedtime for 1-2 days will completely cure your sore throat. You will see a noticable difference after 1 cup. Ginger is an anti-inflammatory, anti-viral painkiller and mild sedative. Lemon reduces the production of mucus so is helpful for the cough.

When I was small, my mother always wrapped a wet towel around my neck, and over that she wrapped a scarf.(wool)Do this just before going to bed. Leave that on while sleeping and the next morning the throat will feel better.

Since I was a very small child, my mother had us gargle hot salt water for sore throats. She mixed it so that it was almost like a brine, very very salty, and then we gargled it until we gagged. Once we gagged, we were finished, because that gagging allowed the brine to get to that portion of the throat that simple gargling didn't. If anyone has ever seen what salt will do to a slug, they will understand why the salty brine breaks that gunk off the back of your throat. Good luck to everyone out there.

For a sore throat my nan always used to boil lemonade and then drink it it worked wonders when I was a kid and still does today! The sore throat should be done by following day!

This is an old Russian Remedy. HEat milk with one tablespoon of butter and one tablespoon of honey. Then drink it while it is still very hot. This will coat your throat making it feel better, and the heat will make swelling go down. this is not only effective but also very tastey.

OMG!!! Thank you so much!! I live in the woods kinda far away from a store of any kind. I caught some kind of bug abd can't harldy swallow. It worked asap:) Your awesome!!!!!


i got a sore throat out of no where and i saw this remedie thinking it would work because of all the comments i saw, it did feel soothing at first but when the peanut butter was gone my throat went back to hurting

Virus specialist

That works but it can be chosen by doctor if u have strep throat it won't work if u have a sore throat only then it will work


It does work (while your eating the peanut butter) but after you eat the peanut butter, the pain comes back!


Ok, Chanel, creator, whoever you are, THANKS, cause this works. Maybe for a little while until you have to eat some more, but my throat was red and inflamed and this definitely provided some relief. I'd rather keep eating peanut butter than do some of the other crazy remedies on here, thanks so much!!!
