I’m in the middle of fighting a nasty cold. You know, that feeling of knives in the back of the throat. No fun.
aaaand it’s my Birthday tomorrow. I’m kinda freaking out. Who wants to be sick on their Birthday?? Especially when you have plans all day and have reservations to eat at your favorite restaurants! I want to be able to taste my food 😀
Yes, there are worse things in life to complain about, I get it…however i’m never sick. I haven’t been sick in over a year (mostly I credit my green tea drinking addiction, I swear by it!!) So why on earth do I have to be sick for my birthday?
Literally, since I got that little feeling inside, that I was getting sick, I have been drinking SOOOO much more liquid than normal. I have been downing water, green tea with lemon and honey, kambucha and apple cider vinegar like its my job.
Aaaaand homemade thyme tea – the perfect sore throat remedy!
When I was living in Paris, France for my last semester of my undergrad, my host mom would make this for me when I was sick or had a sore throat.
It’s just thyme, honey and lemon. So simple, yet so soothing for that throbbing sore throat. Apparently it is known to help get rid of the mucous in your throat. Click here for more information about thyme tea!
I absolutely fell in love with it and don’t think many people know about it. Totally believe in flushing yourself out when you’re sick to try and release the toxins from your body!
I just had to share my favorite tea with my blog readers! You have to try this remedy the next time your sick. OR whenever you feel like it.
All you need is boiled water, 1tbsp. thyme (fresh or dried), 1 tbsp. raw honey and 1/4 fresh lemon squeezed. Steep for 5 minutes.
Use a tea steeper for the loose thyme. As you can tell from my pictures, my steeper isn’t the best, aka I have chunks of thyme in my tea. Hah!
Let me know what you think of my FAVORITE sore throat remedy!! And if you have any remedies to help with cold/sore throat! Happy FRIDAY!
