My niece and I were talking one day about natural alternatives to OTC meds, and she told me that her Mom always used honey whenever she and her sisters (all adults now) had sore throats. So when I saw this article in the Vancouver Sun detailing the antiseptic properties of honey I read it with interest.
An amusing aside is my own daughter's ploys to get more of the sweet stuff:
A: "Mommy I have a sore throat!! I think I need more honey!!"
Me: "Would you like some ice water? You can gargle with salt and warm water, too, if you like."
A: "Um, no, it's ok - it feels ok actually"
RIGHT. Sore throat, or sweet tooth??
