Hot Candle Wax
When we’re sick, all we want to do is feel better. We eat soup, drink tea, and sleep as much as we can. Sometimes, other good ideas pop into our heads that seem like they’ll work faster than any medicine will. This is especially true when we’re 12 years old and don’t know any better, just like this internet user told us.
After suffering from a severe sore throat, he thought that by swallowing hot candle wax, it would soothe his throat. Even though it momentarily worked, it’s not something he recommends doing, and is something he’ll never do again. Having hot wax stuck in your throat doesn’t sound pleasant. To be honest, that’s not the first thing we’d try if we were sick, but it’s fascinating it semi-worked (via The Brainy Penny).
