This one is a breeze to add into any healing practice. You can even snag some honey packets to keep in your bag. Take a spoonful before bed, add it to hot tea or even plain hot water! Not only is it absolutely delicious, but has antibacterial and soothing properties.


Warm water helps break up congestion and opens circulation. Plus, the steam prevents your throat and sinuses from drying out. If there is one thing inflamed vocal cords hate, it’s being dry!


If you are near an herbal shop or even a Whole Foods, you can find these in the supplements aisle. Each of these soothes swelling on contact - so great to chew or drink.

Slippery elm: Soothes sore throats and reduces coughs. Add the powder to warm water. Black Licorice: Chewing tablets work best. Make sure it is actually licorice. Anise oil is often used as a substitute and doesn’t work the same way.Marshmallow Root: As a tea or as a lozenge, this helps hydrate the throat and has antioxidant effects.

Similar to the first remedy, this one adds milks to help coat the throat and help the turmeric sink in.

Add turmeric to milk (or your milk substitute of choice). Warm the milk gently. You can cinnamon, nutmeg or ginger to taste.

When you’re not feeling well, carving out a few hours to focus on healing is a gift. This remedy starts by clearing out mucus, firing up your immune system and letting your body relax. It’s followed by steam to rinse the sinuses and closes with a soothing milk-based tonic.
