Sore throat

To ease a sore throat, one can eat cranberries (raw or boiled), gargle with salt water, or chew some bearded seal fat (and swallow the juice). On the outside of the throat, Labrador tea, with or without a little raw seal fat, is rubbed on. Ptarmigan breast meat or even a dirty, smelly sock can be placed on the neck before going to bed at night
