Soothe Your Throat

This is great for a sore throat or when you lose your voice.

Slice a lemon in quarters and place two of the slices in a mug.  Add a 1-2 teaspoons to a tablespoon of your favorite honey. One to two teaspoons is sufficient for this, but some prefer it to be sweeter. I always use local, raw honey.  Pour boiling water over top and stir to dissolve honey.  Let steep and discard solids if you want.

Some studies also state that honey is also a great cough suppressant when taken right before bed time.
