Bedtime sore throat soother: Warm milk and honey
Coughs abound this time of year. Here's Melissa's soothing remedy:
Here's a great way to soothe a sore throat without having to resort to medicines.... Microwave a mug of milk as you would to make hot chocolate. But instead of stirring in chocolate, stir in about a tablespoon of honey (about two glops from the honey bear). The warm milk will help the honey dissolve. The warm milk is soporific and of course honey is great for a sore throat. (Don't forget that infants under 12 months can't have honey.)
As I'm sure many of you read in the papers recently, honey has been proven to be a more effective cough medicine as anything you'll find on the drugstore shelves.
