Soothe A Sore Throat With Mustard

A sore throat tags along with several illnesses and can be particularly annoying. If you need relief from the pain, you probably have the primary ingredient sitting in your fridge: mustard. Farmer's Almanac offers the full recipe:

Grind one tablespoon of mustard seed and combine with the juice of half a lemon, one tablespoon of salt, one tablespoon of clear honey, and 1 1/4 cups of boiling water. Leave this mixture, covered, for 15 minutes and use as a gargle.

    That should hopefully get rid of the gag reflex, I've been using a bit of betadine recently, and OMG, after 10seconds i feel like i'm about to hurl (same with just salt water, though eating very salty food im fine with).

    Anything with sugar such as a hard lolly or just ice are meant to work well.
