Mouth Sores


  • 2 cups water
  • ½ teaspoon dried sage
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary

To ease the symptoms of a sore throat, mouth sores, or even tooth aches, you can gargle three times a day with the following infusion.

Boil 2 cups water, and remove from heat. Add ½ teaspoon each of dried sage and thyme, and 1 teaspoon dried rosemary. Cover the infusion, and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Strain the liquid, and discard the used herbs. When the infusion has cooled down to a tolerable temperature, gargle with a small amount, and store the rest for later use in your refrigerator.

You should gargle with this infusion three times a day, as it is believed to be very effective in fighting bacteria and infection.
