When you have a cough or a sore throat, honey is a great remedy. What’s even better is honey mixed with a little cayenne pepper to loosen up your sinuses and lungs and provide a soothing tingle to a raw, scratchy throat that is sore from coughing and inflammation. Even if you don’t have a sore throat, these lozenges are really tasty as a sweet-and-spicy pick-me-up throughout your day. We absolutely love to snack on Yippee Cayenne throat lozenges.
Besides a food sweetener, what is honey good for? Dr. Mercola says that there are many benefits of raw, local honey that include but are not limited to allergy relief, boosting energy levels, as a cough medicine, as a scalp treatment, and treating wounds. The medicinal properties of honey are well-known and are as ancient as human history.
