To use it as a remedy, mix about two tablespoons of honey (make sure it’s real honey) into warm water, or ideally, some tea. This concoction should help your throat feel better, and make recovery from tonsillitis much easier.
Salt water is one of the more popular tonsillitis remedies. Just like honey, it’s effective at killing bacteria, and it can also help soothe your throat. Another benefit of salt water is that it helps break down mucus, making it easier for you to breathe.
To use salt water, just mix half a teaspoon of salt into 1 cup of warm water, and gargle. This should help soothe any pain in your throat, and also helps kill off any bacteria that might be causing inflammation in your tonsils.
You can try doing this every morning, and repeat as needed.
Just like honey and salt water, lemons also have great antibacterial properties. And similar to salt water, lemons can help break down mucus that might be stuck in your throat.
If you want to use lemons for your tonsillitis, you can make a “weak’ lemonade by mixing a few teaspoons of lemon juice into warm water. This mixture is very soothing, and you can even mix in some honey if you want to boost the antibacterial properties and provide more relief.
