How to use it?

All you need to do is place a medium sized piece of rock sugar (mishri) in your mouth and slowly swallow its juice (do not chew it). This will cause the sugar granules to release slowly, soothing your throat and loosening the mucus. And the best part is you can do it at any time of the day and anyone, from kids to older people, can try it without any side-effects.
