Here are some recommendations for coughs and sore throats to get us through this difficult winter:

For Coughs
Drink Cough Tea. The main herb is red clover blossoms which is known for helping coughs of all kinds. This blend of herbs can clear the lungs of congestion, loosen phlegm, calm bronchial spasms, and even soothe a sore throat.

  • Steep 1-2 tsp per cup of boiling water for approximately 15 min. Drink as needed.

Take Wild Cherry Syrup. This syrup contains herbs that have been used historically for coughs, colds, and the flu for adults and children.

  • Adults and Children: Take 1 TBL as needed.

Take Armor Essential Oil. This blend utilizes some of the strongest anti-infectious oils aromatherapy has to offer and helps stop a cough.

  • Take 2-3 drops several times a day.

Drink lemon water with honey. Honey has historically been used as a cough reliever.

Pressure Point: Squeeze middle finger right above the joint that connects the hand to the finger.

At night, put a small, peeled garlic clove in between your gums and teeth in the back of the mouth and leave in. This can prevent you from coughing at night. Do not do this with children. 

For Sore Throats
Take Slippery Elm. It is soothing to irritated and inflamed tissues and has historically been used for sore throats.

  • Adults and Children: Mix 1 tsp in a glass of water.

Use Barlow Herbal’s Throat Spray with LDM. This formula contains a powerful combination of herbs and essential oils that soothe irritated throats, and is an effective cough suppressant.

Gargle with salt water and a few drops of Tea Tree Oil, or swab the Tea Tree Oil on the back of the throat.
