5 Throat Soothing Recipes + Sore Throat Remedy

Cold and flu season is my least favorite time of the year. No matter how hard I try to protect my family from all of the nasty germs floating around, we seem to catch just about everything. Although runny noses, coughs, and body aches are simple dreadful, my personal arch nemesis: a sore throat. When I start to experience that tingle in the back of my throat, I know it’s time to pound the fluids and get plenty of rest. Recently I discovered the wonderful healing power of GoGargle! salt water gargle. Combining GoGargle! with these 5 delicious throat soothing recipes, I’m ready to beat cold and flu season.

I received samples and compensation in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.

Created by a mother and registered nurse, GoGargle! Salt Gargle combines 12 ingredients such as honey, chamomile, and aloe vera, to help sooth and diminish the effects sore throats.

As a little girl, whenever faced with a sore throat, I remember my mother making me gargle with warm salt water. Although it always helped, I HATED the taste. That’s one thing that I LOVE about GoGargle! – the delightful minty taste makes gargling a lot more enjoyable. Not to mention, the calming relief is instant! I’ve never experienced such quick and long lasting relief; GoGargle! works miracles!

My husband also appreciates GoGargle!’s minty fresh taste and instant relief as well. Suffering from allergies, gargling with GoGargle! a few times a day helps take away the dry and itchy feeling in his throat. Best of all, GoGargle! is super easy to use!

Start by filling up a glass with 1/2 cup of warm water. Dropping one effervescent salt gargle GoGargle! tablet into the water, allow it to dissolve until the fizzing stops.

Swish the GoGargle! solution around in your mouth (making sure to gargle in the back of your throat) for about 10-15 seconds. Spit out (be sure not to swallow) GoGargle! and enjoy a calm and non-irritated sore throat.

Oh the snowman soup is so adorable!!! For sore throats, we really do not do too much. Sometimes we will do the cough drops as they help soothe! I would love to try the Go Gargle!

What a great product! I too. always used salt water as a child for sore throat pain. The soups all look so delicious! To this day my "baby" (a 25 year old man with a 4 year old little boy himself!) always wants me to make potato soup for him when he isn't feeling well.

Boy the soups look and sound wonderful and I know they would feel great on a sore throat. I definitely want to try the Olive Garden Minestrone and the French Onion Soup. We do the salt water thing too. I would really like to try the GoGargle too.
