Laryngitis & Sore Throat Gargle

This gargle is the BEST for sore throats and laryngitis (these are different diseases). If this is too much work, Gaia Herbs (an excellent source for any herbs) also makes two different excellent cough formulas for children, one for wet cough and one for dry cough.


  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup triple strength sage tea (Triple strength sage tea is: 3 tbsp sage soaked for 10 to 15 min per cup of water and let it steep for 30-60 minutes)
  • 2-3 tsp salt
  • pinch cayenne


Combine all ingredients. Gargle frequently through out the day.
