Natural remedies for sore throats
Browse main article categories
I have a sore throat today. I know why it is – I’ve run myself down. For the past 48 hours I’ve been working hard and it’s taken its toll on my health.
I tend to get myself immersed body, mind and soul into projects, and, being an empath, if I’m working on something that pulls at my heart it can be draining too.
It’s my Birthday tomorrow, so I’m going to take the weekend off, laugh, love and live life alive and get away from everything I have been immersed in for the past 2 days. My soul needs respite from all the shit that is going on in the world.
It’s time for head up bum time – I feel a little guilty about this. People who are living day to day terrors have no choice to pretend its not happening. While I, in the West have the luxury of closing my door and eyes to all which does not serve me when I’ve had enough of it.
It doesn’t stop my heart being wide open though and the plight of others effecting me in a very profound way……….
So, I know what the root of my sore throat is; I’m going to take action to give myself a break and in the meantime, Mother Nature provides us with some wonderful natural and soothing remedies to take away the rawness of physical pain.
One of my top favourites is Sage. Just pour boiling water over a couple of sage leaves, allow to infuse for ten minutes, strain and drink. You can add blackcurrant leaves or honey to it if you prefer.
Applying lavender essential oil to the outside of the throat is relaxing and soothing too. Lavender has a slightly analgesic effect and helps to calm and relax.
We also have a colloidal silver spray here at Chez Green; a few puffs of that can kill any bacterial infection at the back of the throat.
On top of that, I think I’ll have a hot bath with some rose essential oil in it. It’s one of my favourite treats and helps to balance my emotions. And who knows, maybe Mr Green can be sweet talked into giving me a massage this evening. 😉
Ah, I feel better already……..
Have a great weekend everyone
