Nothing does a sore throat better than an effective gargle tonic. This gargle solution uses the potent healing power of licorice root to bring relief from pain, swelling, inflammation and possible voice loss that occurs with a sore throat.

Always seek the guidance of an Ayurvedic Doctor, Practitioner or chosen health care professional before using any home remedy.


  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/4 tsp licorice root powder

  • 1 tsp sesame or coconut oil

  • 2 drops licorice root essential oil


  1. In a small saucepan, bring the water to boil.

  2. Add the powder and oils.

  3. Remove from the heat and cover, allowing to seep and cool for approximately 15 minutes before using.

  4. Gargle, swish and spit the liquid in small sips until gone.

  5. Use 1-2 times daily until symptoms reduce.


This remedy has been sourced from Maya Tiwari's "Ayurveda: The Secrets of Healing" that I would highly recommend as a home remedy guide for any household.
