Having my tonsils taken out as a little girl I was always having sore throats. But then in Australia someone suggested nibbling on a slice of lemon (with the peel on) helps - and yes it does.
I have had a sore throat overnight and was getting rather annoying, so I went on this website and saw this lemon juice and honey cure, I tried it out and it worked! ... Well sort of, it worked for awhile but then it stopped. So I made some more and drank that and it worked again, so I'm just going to take it every time my sore thoat comes back and hopefully it wil get the "message" and go away. Hopefully.
okay I tried the lemon juice just a little bit and put like half a cup of hot water the lemon juice was bottled in the fridge so it came out warm with the hot water from the sink. I gargled it a few times but im not a a very good gargler idk I dont do it as much but then I tried gargling it deeper and when I did that mucus or w. E it may be started spittin back up im guessin thats either the thing that was causing strep throat or idk it was cleaning it out and I feel as if it worked.... But I only did it for a little and though my throat is cleared I still feel the soreness im sure if I did it for a while longer it wouldve been gone , I just dont have the time so im making me a tea... to clear off the rest im hoping and pretty sure itll be better after the tea if not ill go back to deep gargling the lemon juice with hot water ....
Sore Throat: Lemon and Salt work for a sore throat because they dry up infection. Most sore throats are caused by infection in the glands in your throat and lemon, salt, ginger kill infection.
Honey and lemon on Peanut Butter helped my sore throat. Mix Two heaping tablespoons of peanut butter, A tablespoon and a 1/2 of lemon juice and honey. Eat with spoon when throat is sore.
Sore Throat: well you get a lemon and cut it off at the top and you put a pepper mint in the center of the lemon then in a bout a hour of sucking on the lemon bammm baby its gone i got this from my 73 year old grampa
I squeezed the juice of one lemon plus a tablesoon of honey and a dash of ground ginger and microwaved the mixture for 30 seconds. It was very soothing, cleared up my sore throat, and it tastes good too!
so i wake up in the morning almost everyday with a sore throat so i got sick and tired of it and started looking for cures on the internet and came across this page, i tried lemon water and honey and a few minutes later BAMM no more sore throat lol. this works great.
For a sore throat...1/2 cup of warm water, fresh lemon or lemon juice squeezed into warm water and 1 tsp honey. It really works....and it is very soothing.

Sucking on a lemon: If you have mononucleosis, do not try this. I did, and my throat is worse. (It did NOT cure my throat)
I tried fresh lemon squeezed on half a spoon and honey on the other half and swallow it down. This really works for sore throat!
a mug half full of hot water. A good sized lemon. Cut in half (use a strainer or de seed if desired)squeeze lemon juice in to mug of hot water. And most important ingredient: HONEY. 2 TSP depending on how sweet you prefer. IMPORTANT FYI : When sick w/ a cold or flu try not to drink orange juice or apple juice they tend to en flame a sore throat. So since you must drink lots of fluids Gatorade/Powerade ,7up, teas (best if hot no caffeine too) but stay away from cold juices that are citric acid HOT IS BEST
Equal amount of lemon juice/ fresh ginger juice/ honey/ fresh onion juice mix everything together have a tablespoonful every hour for two to three days. This cures a cold/ cough/ sore throat. Mum used to keep a bottleful in the freeze and you had to make an effort do drink about six to eight times a day, has a nice taste. People who don't like onions can make it without.
You need to be careful when eating lemons or the juice from a lemon if you have a scratchy or dry throat at ALL. I am a singer and my doctor advised me to use a cool mist humidifier, drink water constantly, and suck on hard candy. Throat drops with menthol- BAD, lemons- BAD, and soup with salt- BAD. These will all dry the throat.

I tried the lemon sucking thing and I couldn't take it, so I went out to the back and found an orange that was safe to eat, but just a bit sour. It was pretty big, and by the time I finished it my throat was feeling a lot better.
