Just like the title says, this really helps coughs, sore throat due to a cold or flu. The garlic is antibacterial and the honey is so soothing. Adapted from a home remedy site.


  1. Peel the garlic cloves and put them in a medium-size jar; add honey to just cover the garlic and then set it on a sunny windowsill until the garlic has turned partly opaque and the honey tastes strongly of garlic.
  2. Take a teaspoon every few hours or whenever necessary to relieve cough, sore throat, etc.
  3. This is good a a preventitive too when everyone around you is sick!
