In case you were wondering about the sporadic posting as of late, I thought I’d let everyone know that I’ve been blessed with a lovely bout of end-of-summer cold. This consists of, but is not limited to, runny nose, tearing eyes, sore throat, sneezing, coughing, headache, and generally feeling like a frosh at the end of orientation week. In honour of this lovely setback, I decided I would share with you all my favourite sore throat remedy, mostly because this illness is about all I can focus on at the moment. Enjoy!

Sore Throat Remedy


  • mug
  • microwave


  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 cup water


  1. Fill the mug up with water and put it in the microwave for 2 minutes on high to heat up.
  2. While the water heats, slice 2-3 slices of lemon.
  3. Squeeze the lemon wedges into the hot water and drop them into the mug.
  4. Add the honey and stir.
  5. Drink to soothe your sore throat!

    I have an “end-of-summer cold” during my first week of school T-T I’d like to try this, but don’t have honey or lemon in my dorm. Anyone know of a different solution?

    I’d add a couple of slices of fresh ginger to the tea.
