In addition, you may be the master in making the best tea at your home, however, herbal tea for flu has some different technique to make. Only 3 ingredients Ginger, garlic and a small amount of jalapeno are required. Put all of these ingredients in the bottom of a pot and decent warm water on these ingredients. Cover the pot for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, pass all the mixture through a filter and mix 2 tablespoons of honey for a sore throat.

I would like to say that salted water gargle is the best way to treat a sore throat and flu.
3-Coconut Oil for Flu and Sore throat
I always enjoy the flu whenever I suffered from it. Do you know why? I increase the usage of coconut oil in daily life and it gives me an extra taste in my cooking. So, it is the only treatment which is more delicious than anything. You can use it in milk, tea or several other beverages.
Why I did not use Coconut Oil daily?
I only use coconut oil to treat the flu. Besides this, I use it rarely because it has saturated fat and can become a cause of heart disease. So, use only 2 tablespoons in a day if you never take it before.
Note: You can use other essential oils for flu and sore throat. By sniffing, you might treat your flu and sore throat.
Again a yummy recipe is here to treat your flu. I would not write a lengthy paragraph on soup, as everybody knows how to make a chicken corn soup. However, be careful while using it, the best season of using it is winter. It can be used if you are not suffering from flu.
