• Honey - It coats the throat and has mild antibacterial properties. Stir 1–3 teaspoons honey into 1 cup (250ml) warm water and gargle two or three times a day.
• Salt - Salt water has been used as a gargle for centuries because it works so well. It draws moisture from the mucous membranes (and helps to dilute the mucus) and helps to cleanse the throat of phlegm. Dissolve 1/2 teaspoon salt in 1 cup (250ml) warm water and gargle the mixture three or four times daily.
• Peppermint - The menthol in peppermint helps open the nasal passages, especially when you gargle strong peppermint tea. Pour 1 cup (250ml) boiling water over 3 peppermint tea bags and let steep for 4–5 minutes. Gargle with the cooled solution two or three times a day.
