Even though Spring is here, many can still be susceptible to minor coughs, colds, and sore throats due to the change of weather. An issue that can often arise, is finding an all natural remedy that actually works, rather than reaching for an over the counter medicine. Homeopathy is a powerful way to combat and treat these unwanted surprises without any harmful side effects. Basically, homeopathy is a natural therapeutic method of medicinal treatment that stimulates the body’s natural healing process. Homeopathy views illness as affecting the entire individual (mind-body-spirit) and treats the whole person rather than just the symptoms.
If you have children, you may be concerned about “choking hazards,” such as using throat lozenges. I have these worries when my child gets sick, which is why I use a liquid sprayable version. I use the recipe below which helps remove the initial sting of a sore throat and heal the symptoms quicker than a typical lozenge does. If you are curious why these specific essential oils were included in the ingredients, I have included a picture below that explains what symptoms these oils combat. Do, however, make sure you are using essential oils that say “supplement” on the bottle, which have been approved for internal use, such as Young Living’s Essential oils. As always, talk with your doctor to verify that these oils do not interfere with any prescriptions.
Do you have any similar home remedies that you use?
