Upcycle a 15 ml amber glass Young Living essential oil bottle into a little ‘Throat Spray’ for that nasty tickle or soreness in your throat.

Each of the Young Living genuine Therapeutic Grade essential oils used in the ‘recipe’ below, are ‘GRAS’ or “generally regarded as safe” for human consumption by the FDA in the United States.

Clove and Peppermint ALSO have been approved by Health Canada as Natural Health Products (NHPs) – asserting their effectiveness in relieving symptoms associated with common ailments, as well as restoring, maintaining, and supporting good health.

The oils used are soothing and help numb a sore throat, but more importantly have anti-infectious, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and immune-stimulating properties. Some are also mucolytic helping to dissolve or breakdown and expel excess mucous.

“Most sore throats are caused by viruses and can be successfully treated at home. In actuality sore throats are a common symptom of an acute infection like laryngitis, tonsillitis, and pharyngitis. Strep throat is a bacterial infection of the throat by Group A Streptococcus bacteria and can only be diagnosed by a throat swab. Antibiotics are frequently given for strep throat to prevent a rare health problem associated with strep throat, rheumatic fever. Most sore throats will subside within 10 days”. ~ [School of Nature’s Remedies – Doctor Mom ~ Urgent Care for Everyday Ailments, © 2012 Life Science Publishing].
