Essential Oils for Sore Throat


      Here's a list of essential oils that are traditionally believed to help alleviate symptoms of a sore throat:

      • Peppermint Oil: Contains menthol, which can help soothe a sore throat and act as a decongestant.
      • Eucalyptus Oil: Often used for its anti-inflammatory properties and may help to relieve a sore throat.
      • Thyme Oil: Known for its antibacterial properties, which can be helpful in treating a sore throat caused by bacteria.
      • Tea Tree Oil: Has antiseptic, antifungal, and antibacterial properties that can help fight the infection causing a sore throat.
      • Lemon Oil: May help to cleanse toxins from the body and has a soothing effect.
      • Oregano Oil: Contains compounds that have demonstrated antibacterial and antiviral effects.
      • Clove Oil: Known for its pain-relieving properties and can be soothing for a sore throat.
      • Lavender Oil: Renowned for its anti-inflammatory and relaxing properties, which may provide some comfort.
      • Frankincense Oil: Often used for its anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties.

      When applying essential oils directly to the neck area to alleviate sore throat, it's usually a good idea to dilute them with a carrier oil if you plan to apply them topically.  For inhalation, you can add the essential oils without a carrier oil to a waterless diffuser or add a few drops to a bowl of hot water for steam inhalation.
