I woke this morning to the first real sign of the change in the seasons: A line of condensation on the inside of my bedroom window.
Time to prepare for the winter ahead.
Sore throat remedy.
- Ground basil
- Hot water or milk
Make a paste of about a tablespoon in total – equal portions of each turmeric, honey and ground basil then dilute to about half a glass in hot water or more usually milk.
Gargle well and swallow. Repeat gargling to use all of the mixture.
Try it before going to bed and Bingo! – Next morning your throat should no longer feel like sandpaper!
