Who doesn’t get a sore throat at least a few times a year?

 

Our son came down with the flu recently. He had a sore throat a high fever.

 

He wanted something warm to relieve his raw throat – something besides hot water with tea.

 

I saw this recipe that called for warm milk, cinnamon, ginger and honey.

 

Our son is lactose intolerant so I used almond milk when I made this recipe.

 

Cinnamon Sore Throat Tea is now a requested staple at our house.

 

The best part about this tea recipe is that you likely have all the ingredients waiting for  you in your kitchen cabinet.

 

One of the reasons I’m so passionate about the use of herbs in tea is because plants can heal your body.

 

That may sound like a really nice concept.

 

But it might leave you wondering just how feasible it would be for you to google which herb will soothe your ailment the next time you’re having trouble just crawling out of bed.

 

Chances are that it’s even more unlikely that you would track down that specific herb at a super specialty health food store when your throat feels like it’s on fire.

 

It’s much easier to reach into your medicine cabinet and pop a tablet that has you covered for an array of aches, pains, fever, and chills.

 

But before you start making assumptions about the likelihood of using herbs when you’re sick, consider this:

 

Using herbs as a remedy for your aches and pains, both for your physical body and for your nervous system, doesn’t have to be so tricky.

 

You likely have a virtual medicine cabinet on your spice rack in your kitchen.

 

With Cinnamon Sore Throat Tea you only need 4 ingredients that are a cinch to put together to calm down your throbbing throat.

Cinnamon Sore Throat Tea is particularly soothing right before you go to bed at night, when your throat hurts so much that you wonder how you’ll sleep through the night.
