Sore Throat, Cold and Flu Prevention, and Cure Remedies

The following recipes are ayurvedic, therefore not 100% vegan because I am using honey. I believe in the healing powers of honey, especially when dealing with sore throats and coughs.

Homemade Cold and Flu Prevention Elixir


  • 500g raw organic honey*
  • 3 lemons, juiced
  • 2.5 cloves garlic, minced


In an airtight glass container, combine all of the ingredients and let sit in a dark and cool place for one week.

For best results take a small teaspoon of the elixir twice a day: in the morning and before bed.

Can be stored in the refrigerator up to six months.

Honey is a powerful immune system booster. It’s an antioxidant and has antibacterial properties which can help prevent and fight illness.

*Honey is not vegan, but I have not found a substitute yet.

This cleansing elixir was originally given to me by a Hungarian friend and it became my immune system support.

Children take one teaspoon at bedtime.
