The right reflexes to relieve a sore throat
Laryngitis is an inflammation of the larynx due to an infection, most often of viral origin. Solutions to soothe sore throats: essential oils, homeopathic medicines, infusions and lozenges.
Plants against sore throat
The advice of Dr. Jean-Michel Morel, phytotherapist.
“For its anti-inflammatory virtues, I recommend gargling with an herbal infusion or a bramble leaf decoction (the mixture is filtered after boiling for about fifteen minutes).
Sage leaves can be added in equal parts. Count a handful for half a liter of boiling water, to drink throughout the day. Children can also drink some.
In essential oils, mint, clove, thyme, cinnamon and lavender have soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. They are associated in certain complexes. »

Homeopathic medicines for laryngitis
The advice of Dr. Monique Quillard, homeopath.
“For a diffuse sore throat accompanied by severe thirst and bad breath, I prescribe Mercurius solubilis 9 CH, five granules three times a day.
In case of pain under the ears, with large lymph nodes and pain when swallowing, it is better to take Phytolacca 9 CH, the same dose.
If the throat is very inflamed and a fever develops, it is best to consult a doctor. In the meantime, you can take Belladonna 9 CH, five granules every two hours. »
Erysimum-based tablets or mouthwash
The advice of Claire Dousset, pharmacist of the Giropharm Group
“For sore throats, I often use lozenges or mouthwashes based on erysimum, a soothing plant.
They can be given from the age of seven. Some products also contain an anesthetic.
I also recommend herbal teas such as white broth or marshmallow, with a spoonful of honey and lemon. This helps moisten the mucous membrane. Get drunk in the morning and in the afternoon. »
