Special Throat Spray Bottles with 360 degree atomizer
You’ll want to pick up one of these special throat spray bottles. These will make the spray so much more effective because the little extender piece will get the spray directly to the back of the throat. Right where it’s needed.
These are the same types of spray bottles you’ll get if you buy a commercial throat spray.

Local Raw Honey from your farmers market is the best choice for this spray.
You could also choose to use Manuka Honey which is a very powerful medicinal honey. It does cost a bit more than honey from your farmers market, but it is well worth the cost.
No teddy bear honey from the grocery store, please. Those have no medicinal value in them.All the good stuff has been processed out and it’s just a sweet tasting sticky substance.
Can’t make it to your farmer’s market? This Raw Honey from Amazon is a great option! I’ve used it and love it.
Use as a Throat Gargle Instead of Spray
Essential Oils for your Throat Spray
Let’s talk about essential oil safety. Since you’ll be ingesting these oils, please make sure you are using an essential oil that is safe to consume. It may surprise you to know that most essential oils from the grocery store, superstore, or drugstores are fragrance only. Meaning they aren’t safe to ingest or consume internally.
How to tell if an essential oil is safe to consume? There will be a supplements fact chart on the label, just like there is on our food packaging.
If you’ve ever ordered an essential oil from Amazon and it smelled off, you were the victim of oil tampering. Mos. It’s very easy to put on a new tamper proof cap to have it look as if the oil bottle has never been opened. Anyone can buy these caps anywhere.
I’m bringing this up here because I want you to stay safe. Since you will be ingesting these oils, please know what you are ingesting.
Please make sure you buy your doTERRA from a safe source. Look for doTERRA certified websites that have the seal. I have the seal displayed on my home page and you can click the link down below in my footer to verify it is active.

what can I substitute frankincense with
Hi Suitumua, You could try some Lavender instead, or leave it out.
Made this to help with my recovery and it worked well for me. Only change was I doubled the amount of honey. Used before bed and by morning my throat swelling and discomfort were cut at least in half, maybe more. Helped sooth and calm to allow healing. This recipe is one of my new go-tos.
I’m so glad it helped and that you are feeling better! Thanks for sharing 🙂
Great information. Thank you for sharing
How often can it be used on your throat do you think?
Andi, You can use this every couple hours as needed. It’s honestly fine to use more frequently than that if needed.
Raw honey is a bit thick, would it need to be diluted?
Hi Nita – The recipe calls to top off your bottle with water. Once you do that, shake it up to combine everything and it should be the right consistency.
How long does this list for and does it have to be refrigerated?
Hi Julie – it will last indefinitely (at least as long as the expiration date on your oils that you use and likely longer), and nope – doesn’t need to be refrigerated. Raw Honey is shelf stable so no need to refrigerate.
Awesome, Thanks for the info. I can’t wait to try!
