Last year during smog season in Lahore, I got the worst throat issues ever. That’s when I did my research on what herbal remedies are good for throat and started making my own herbal tea. It worked wonders. Recently on my holiday, my voice had changed into a man’s. When I returned home, the first thing I did was make my tea and within a day, my voice returned miraculously.
The following recipe for Herbal Tea works brilliantly as a sore-throat remedy. It helps flush out toxins from your body and boosts blood circulation.

At first you will need to develop taste for it. Initially i disliked its taste and used to force it down like a medicine as I knew it works wonders. Now I don’t mind its taste at all. So stay patient. It really works better than any medicine. Stay blessed. Can’t wait to hear about your recovery stories too.
