So, without wasting any time, let’s get you all better by taking a look at some of the essential oil for sore throat!
Lemon Oil & Eucalyptus Oil
A compound oil made by eucalyptus oil and lemon oil in the ratio of 1:3 drops mixed with some water can help you a lot in getting rid of a sore throat. Just gargle with this mixture before going to bed you should see a substantial decrease in the pain by morning. If it doesn’t seem to work, increase the intensity of each of the oils in the mixture and continue gargling with these oils till the pain goes away.
Being already used for treating cold, respiratory infections and sinus, it’s a no-brainer that peppermint oil is also useful in treating cold sores due to their anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Since peppermint oil is a pretty intense oil, you’ll again need to mix it with some water and carrier oil to harness its benefits without causing any damage.
Many studies have proven that oregano oil has many antiviral and antifungal properties and can hence be considered as an essential oil for sore throat. But the studies don’t stop there, as many experiments also suggest that oregano oil is actually capable of killing the superbug MSRA and treat parasitic infections, though this hasn’t been thoroughly proven so take these claims with a grain of salt if you’re looking for home remedies to treat either of those problems.
Since thyme oil is extracted from the herb thyme, it has been used in the ancient times as a form of medicine and the oil is still being used as a remedy for various ailments in ayurveda, the ancient study of medicine based in India.
But this doesn’t mean that thyme oil doesn’t have any modern-day scientific studies to prove it’s worth: some scientists have discovered that thyme oil is even efficient against antibiotic-resistant bacteria, a feat that not many ingredients/medicines can achieve.
