A Witchy Remedy for Sore throats

A magic Jar with Ginger, Lemon and Honey to fight symptoms of Common Cold and Sore Throats

by the Alchemist

Kitchen Witchcraft practices amongst others, powerful home remedies, which are considered one of the most popular acts of an urban witch. Not only can it help your family, your friends and your neighbours it also gives witchcraft a good name shedding some light on what us witches can do. 

Now that Winter is Coming (which is full of terrors = germs / viruses) sore throats and symptoms of common cold are issues we deal on a daily basis. This is a very helpful and powerful remedy to treat sore throats in the cold winter. It's one of the most common remedies amongst the witches. Try it.


2 fresh Lemons (medium sized)
1 inch Ginger 
1 cup honey (preferably thyme honey or pine honey - see why here)
1 tablespoon dried thyme(click here to learn more about thyme's magical properties)
1 mason jar (to store)

Wash the Lemons thoroughly and cut them into thin slices. Repeat the same with Ginger.  Remove excessive moisture via paper tissues. 

Now place the slices in the jar. Add the cup of Honey and the tablespoon of thyme and stir for a minute. Close the jar and put it in the fringe. Store it for 48 hours. It will slowly become a (rather loose) jelly. 


It goes without saying that consulting with your medical doctor is a priority. If you are allergic to honey, ginger, thyme or lemon do not try it

When needed, get the jar out, scoop 2 tablespoons of jelly (be sure you’ve taken both lemon slices and ginger in scoops) and put it in a cup. Pour some boiling water over it and stir clockwise to empower it for at least 1-2 minutes. To make it more pleasant for you add some more honey or maybe whisky (or rum) for extra taste.
