Throat Inflammation

10 Apr

Someone asked me what they can do to reduce inflammation in the throat. Essential oils of lemon, thyme, eucalyptus or tea tree would be good choices for steam inhalation because of their antiseptic and anaesthetic properties. Combine a total of 3 to 4 drops of one of two of these oils for the inhalation method. Also, a warm  salt water gargle with one drop of chamomile and one drop thyme is effective. Do not swallow the water – just gargle.
