Sore Throat Spray by Cattail Apothecary
Regular price$ 17.00
Save $ -17.00
A combination of spilanthes, horehound, echinacea and peppermint to help ease sore throat pain and suppress coughing.
Spilanthes is also known as the “toothache plant”, “buzz buttons”, “tingflowers” and “electric daisies” and these names are found to be quite apt upon chewing on one of these strange looking flowers as they excite the nerves and create a very distinct tingling feeling! This buzzing and numbing feeling does translate into tincture form and when sprayed into the mouth it can help ease the pain and itch of a sore throat. Spilanthes also stimulates the salivary glands causing the mouth to water noticeably. This keeps the throat lubricated to cut down on coughing that can further irritate an already sore throat. Added to the mix is horehound, which can help break up phlegm, echinacea, for its antibacterial and antiviral properties and peppermint, for it cooling effect and delicious flavor.
DIRECTIONS: Spray directly into the back of the mouth, toward the throat, as needed.
Packaged in a 2 oz amber glass bottle with spray mister top.
INGREDIENTS: spilanthes**, echinacea**, horehound**, peppermint**, alcohol, non-GMO vegetable glycerin*, distilled water (**cultivated without the use of chemicals, *certified organic)
