    This is a lovely recipe for soothing a sore throat and simple to make.

    3 cloves
    5 peppermint leaves, chopped
    5 sage leaves, chopped or torn into small pieces
    30 mls of Echinacea tincture, or I use 4 echinacea tea bags put into a small glass jug with 50mls of water and leave it to brew for a few hours, then cool.

    Place the cloves, peppermint and sage leaves into a glass jar (or add to the cold tea), add the tincture (if using), cover and leave to stand in a cool dark place for two weeks. Gradually the colour will change.

    After two weeks strain the liquid through a loose-weaved muslin places in a strainer, squeeze, the liquid and herbs carefully by hand. Filter this liquid into a sterilised dark glass spray bottle.

    This is very simple, but quite a well known sore throat remedy

    1 large bunch of sage leaves - tear the leaves into small sizes.
    Runny organic Raw honey - enough to cover the sage leaves


    Wash and dry the sage leaves ( before tearing) add to a glass bowl and add the honey, warm over a pan of water, allowing the honey to warm, but not bubble, leave like this for 1 hour.

    After an hour, take off the heat and allow to completely cool before straining the mixture into a sterile dark glass jar.

    Take 1 teaspoon whenever needed to soothe a sore throat.
    You can also add to hot lemon water for added cold comfort during your winter cold.

    I love the idea of making your own mixtures, there seems to be something very natural about it, in terms of how it makes you feel. Almost like it is part of our blue print!

    Honey and whisky, the honey soothes your throat and the whisky helps you relax and sleep better

    Lots of children returning to school and have gone down with sore throats so I have been recommending honey as perfect for kids
