I have been known to be a little paranoid about “choking hazards,” so I’ve never been a fan of throat lozenges, especially for children. That’s why this throat spray is my favorite way to deal with a sore throat! And it can be used as needed throughout the day or night. I love that!
And not only is it great for a sore throat, it can also help clear the throat before singing.
Sore Throat Spray*
1/4 oz. Vodka
1 1/2 oz. Purified Water
10 drops YLTG Thieves Essential Oil Blend
5 drops YLTG Peppermint essential oil
5 drops YLTG Lemon essential oil
2 drops Stevia or 1 tsp. honey
2 oz. glass spray bottle
Blend together and store in a 2 oz. dark glass spray bottle (available HERE). Spray 1-2 squirts on the back of the throat for soothing relief.
*I only recommend using Young Living Therapeutic Grade (YLTG) Essential Oils in this recipe, since they are pure enough to be ingested, and lower quality oils may be toxic.
To get started using therapeutic grade essential oils with your family, I recommend purchasing our Premium Starter Kit! This way, you’ll enjoy wholesale prices all the time! It includes ten of Young Living’s most popular essential oil singles and blends, an ultrasonic diffuser (worth $100.00!), essential oil samples for sharing, and 2 NingXia Red immune boosting drinks!
