How to Help a Sore Throat

It never fails.  The little voice coming from the bedroom exclaiming, “Mommy!  I have a sore throat!”  What’s a mom to do?  I don’t know about your kids, but mine can milk a sore throat for all it’s worth.  Luckily, I have found a method that works wonders on those hurting throats in my household.

I have a cabinet in my house that is just for ‘cold’ emergencies and my kids know the routine.  At the first sign of a sore throat, we immediately put in action a salt-water gargle routine.  They will do this 3x a day for as long as their throats are hurting.

Sore Throat Gargle

-4 oz. water
-2 drops of Thieves Vitality EO
-2 tsp. of sea salt


Stir well and gargle right away.  I ask them to count to 10 in their head each time.

Call me old-fashioned, but I still don’t think there is anything better than a spoonful of organic honey to smooth that throat.  After they have finished gargling, they get a spoonful of nature’s candy.

I also keep a 10ml Roller bottle filled with a blend that warms and soothes the throat.  We rub this right below their ears and down their throat.  As with any EO, if you get it in your eye, DO NOT WASH OUT WITH WATER.  Use a carrier oil like olive oil and flush the eye out.

-20 drops Frankincense
-20 drops Peppermint
-20 drops Lavender
-15 drops Wintergreen
-15 drops Eucalyptus Globulus

– 15 drops Copaiba

-Then fill bottle with equal parts of a carrier oil.  I prefer organic jojoba oil, or grape-seed oil.
