Introduction: Soothe Your Sore Throat

This is a home remedy that my Mom used to give me when I was a kid, and it actually works quite well.

Step 1: What You'll Need

- 2 Spoons

- Vaseline

- Honey

(I prefer to use creamed honey, but was almost out so I used regular honey for this Instructable and it works just as well)

Step 2: Mix

-Put a little Vaseline in one spoon and a little honey in the other.

-Using the two spoons, combine the ingredients and mix them well.

Step 3: Swallow

-Slowly swallow the mixture

The idea is coat your throat with it as much as possible. The Vaseline will create a protective barrier that will provide some relief from the pain.

*tip - Remember to eat and drink plenty of water before swallowing the mixture, this way you'll avoid washing it all down you're throat too soon.

*****PLEASE NOTE***** I have researched whether or not it's ok to consume Vaseline but could not find a definite answer. I wouldn't eat a whole tub of it, but I figure if you put on your lips you're going to end up consuming it. So I don't think a small spoonful once in a while will kill you. Heck, I'm still alive!
All the same, I am not a doctor, and cannot guarantee that you will get the same result as I have.
So use of this home remedy is at your own risk.
