Sore Throat Poultice
On a piece of cotton large enough to wrap your throat put castor oil and mint oil.
Layer with a piece of wax or parchment paper, a damp hot cloth (face cloth) and a dry cloth (hand towel).
Cover with a heat bag to keep the heat and moisture in.
Keep on for at least one hour.
The castor oil draws infection from your throat, removes pain and breaks up congestion. You can use this on your chest as well.
