Natural Solutions
In addition to having a great scent, thyme is a well-known natural antiseptic. In fact, it is the main active ingredient in Listerine mouthwash. A great spin on a natural sore throat aid is to boil salt water and thyme leaves, let cool to a warm (not hot) temperature, and gargle 3 times a day. Although it is not a replacement for modern medicine, this process may help decrease sore throat inflammation in 2-5 days.
