DIY Sore Throat Spray - doTERRA Essential Oils - Dawn Goehring Desert Naturals

DIY Sore Throat Spray with Honey and Essential Oils

Use this quick and easy all natural DIY sore throat spray with essential oils and honey anytime you, your husband, or your kids gets that raw, itchy feeling in the back of your throat.  

The essential oils and honey will help soothe the pain, and will get to work to boost your body's immune system and your throat will be feeling better in no time!

You'll also save money over a store bought spray.  The essential oils only cost a few cents per drop.

I love making homemade DIY treatments out of essential oils and natural ingredients. They work.  Really well. Homemade usually cost less than store bought over the counter products.  And best of all, I know exactly what is going in my sprays, rollers, lotions, and balms.  So I can feel good about what I am using on my children.

The essential oils that are in this recipe are chosen for their benefits to the body's immune system.  OnGuard is a powerful protectant blend.  Lemon is full of anti-oxidants.  Frankincense helps the body's cells renew and regenerate.

Raw Natural honey is also packed full of anti-oxidants which help your body support it's immune system.  It also provides a nice coating and is very soothing on raw, tender throats.

This recipe is designed to be used as a spray.  

You could also choose to gargle with the oils that are in this recipe if that's more your style.  

Instead of making a spray, just add a drop or two of each oil to a small glass of water with enough water in it to gargle with.

Gargle as long as you can, and then swallow it!  

I know that sounds gross, but getting the essential oils and honey into your body will work wonders for your immune system.

never buy doterra essential oils on amazon because of tampering
Why doTERRA and not something from Amazon or Walmart?

Did you know that most essential oils at drugstores are synthetic fragrance only?  And did you know that most oils on Amazon, even doTERRA, are adulterated (tampered with and diluted with coconut oil), and can't be trusted? 

I choose to use doTERRA essential oils.  They are the purest, highest quality and only brand I trust to use for my family.  Find out Why I LOVE doTERRA here.  It's not only just for their fabulous essential oils. It's for their sustainability and the way they work hand in hand with the farmers and communities who grow the plants.

 The cheapest way to get the doTERRA oils you need for this DIY is with a starter kit instead of buying them individually.  You'll save over 25% and get all three in the Healthy Start Kit which comes with a diffuser. 

Frankincense is a fairly pricey oil, so this is a fabulous discounted price.

Holistic Living Mom with years of experience with essential oils. I have a doTERRA Essential Oil Specialist certification, and Aromatherapy with distinction diploma.Essential Oils enabled my son to live life again to his fullest after struggling to do basic activities like go to school and play soccer. Because his life was so drastically improved, a passion was ignited in me to learn as much as possible about essential oils, including how they are sourced, tested, and ultimately how they work in the body.I love to make my own all natural beauty products and rarely purchase cleaners or otc products from the store. doTERRA is the first essential oil brand I was ever introduced to and it has worked so well for us that I am now a loyal follower and educator.
