Conventional soothers are full of sugar and other not so great ingredients that are more likely to weaken your immune system more even if they do provide temporary relief so here is what I do instead!
First I layer Frankincense essential oil and Lemon essential oil directly on my throat, dilute with fractionated coconut oil if you have sensitive skin or for children.
Then I put a drop or two of Lemon essential oil (I only use doTERRA for internal use and therapeutic use) in a teaspoon of quality raw honey and swallow.
I make a tea with filtered boiling water, freshly squeezed lemon and lemon rind, diced ginger and garlic, leave to steep for 5 minutes and filter out the pieces of lemon, ginger and garlic. Add a drop each of Frankincense and Lemon and drink.
Then take a shot glass of filtered water and add a drop or two of Tea Tree essential oil, tip my head back and gargle for one to two minutes.
I will also diffuse On Guard our immune protective blend, Oregano and Frankincense in the diffuser in the day and night close to me and make a roller bottle of 5 drops Oregano, 5 drops Frankincense, 5 drops On Guard (this is quite strong) and fill the rest with fractionated coconut oil. Just use 1-2 drops of each if you have sensitive skin or you are making this for children.
Apply this to the soles of the feet and down the spine every few hours and before bed with socks over the top.
Make plenty of bone broth. Get REST, sunshine, read a good book such as You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay, do some affirmations.. metaphysically a sore throat is related to the inability to speak up for one’s self. Swallowed anger. Stifled creativity and the refusal to change so the related affirmation is
“It’s okay to make noise. I express myself freely and joyously. I speak up for myself with ease. I express my creativity. I am willing to change.”
