Last week, I got a bad case of sore throat and to be honest, it was a bummer since I managed to stay pretty healthy the whole winter! What happened was I got overexcited on those few days that we got spring-like temperatures and I totally underdressed. Anyway, a while ago I saved myself this little homemade honey-ginger throat drops recipe, so instead of getting the store-bought stuff that are full of crazy chemical sugar substitutes, I made a whole jar of my own. They not only worked like a charm on my poorly throat but they were also extremely easy to make considering that I rarely make candy-type of things.
Basically you just need some herbal tea, sugar, powder sugar and a candy mould + herbs like ginger or sage. (Here is a little chart of what herbs are good for what). That is all. I used Sarah's recipe this time around, but next time I am also going to try this one with sage.
Have you ever made your own throat drops before? How was your winter so far? Did you get sick? xo
P.S: Here is sore throat remedy that Balazs loves!
P.P.S: Plus, I still can't get enough of this awesome eucalyptus steam shower trick. It's my all time favourite.
