Throat Pain Home Remedies

My son is experiencing throat pain right now. We have no medicine available at home so i just search the net for some home remedies. Here are some of them:

Hot drinks

Having hot or warm drinks is one of the best remedies to ease the pain and inflammation caused due to sore throat. You can have any hot drinks like ginger tea, herbal tea, chicken soup, etc. once or twice a day.

Gargle with Salt Water

One of the most ancient and yet effective throat pain remedies is to gargle with salt water 3-4 times a day. You can add ½ teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water and gargle.

Lemon and Honey

Lemon and honey contain natural anti-bacterial properties and hence, a mixture of the two can help treat throat pain. You can mix 2 teaspoons of honey in warm water and 1-2 drops of lemon juice and have the mixture 1-2 times a day.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar also contains properties that help in treating infections. A mixture of lemon, honey, apple cider vinegar and cayenne pepper can also be taken as one of the most effective home remedies for sore throat.


Garlic is also a natural antibiotic and antiseptic that helps in treating infections. You can include garlic in your dishes or soak 2-3 cloves of garlic in honey and eat it after some time.

Ginger Tea
Ginger tea has been used as a throat pain treatment, especially in Asian countries, since ancient times. While preparing tea, you can add 2-3 slices of ginger and boil the tea and have it once or twice a day.


Licorice is yet another option when it comes to strep throat remedies that help in giving quick relief. It is also one of the ingredients of several herbal teas.


Basil is a herb having natural healing properties. You can boil some leaves of holy basil and have the warm water or gargle with the water.
