Best Natural Remedy for a Sore Throat that Works Amazingly

Hello and welcome to JADa Therapy


Having a sore throat can become a real set back when you lead a busy life. Most sore throats are part and parcel of having a cold or flu. Which can be uncomfortable over a period of time in most people, will resolve itself. This type of sore throat is viral infection.

Strep throat (Streptococcal infection), is a less common condition and is caused by bacteria, that is often treated by antibiotics to prevent further complications.

Signs and Symptoms of a Sore Throat Include:


  • Pain or scratchy sensation in the throat
  • Pain that can get worse when you swallow or talk
  • Swallowing becoming more difficult
  • Swollen glands in your neck
  • Jaw feeling sore when you move it
  • Swollen, red tonsils
  • Voice becoming hoarse

Having a sore throat can also lead to other symptoms such as:

  • Headache
  • Aching joints
  • Body ache
  • Ear ache
  • Fever
  • Runny nose
  • Cough
  • Sneezing
  • Nausea and or vomiting
  • A general feeling of unwell
  • These symptoms can also affect your sleep.

Depending on how healthy you are these symptoms can last about a week or so.

Let me Explain


I mentioned earlier that you could treat a sore throat with antibiotics, but with antibiotics are becoming less effective today because of it being overused in the past decade or so.

It Gets Worse


Unfortunately antibiotics were given out like candy making them useless in treating the simplest of infections. I thought I would repeat this because it is important to understand that most virus and bacterial infections cannot be properly treated with antibiotics. At times it is only a short term solution, and this is why many people today keep having recurring sore throats.

The Best Natural Remedy for a Sore throat Using Oregano Essential Oil


Oregano is not just a herb that you add to the top of pasta dish or the soup. It is a wonder herb that has many benefits in helping to heal the body.

It is brilliant for treating sore throats along with other conditions.

This is a natural treatment that can be used to treat many conditions but I will be focusing on treating a sore throat.

What is Oregano?


Oregano is a flowering plant which belongs to the mint family.

Scientific Name: Organum Vulgare

It is native to temperate Western and Southwestern Eurasia and the Mediterranean region.

Oregano essential oil contains a compound called carvacrol that has anti-microbial properties.

The Benefits of Oregano Essential Oil


  1. Anti-oxidants
  2. Anti-bacterial
  3. Anti-inflammatory
  4. Anti-oxidants

Oregano is loaded with antioxidants.


Helps the body to heal by repairing damaged cells caused by free radicals. Helping your body to function more smoothly.

The properties found in Oregano essential oil is really good when it comes to clearing up infections and when used properly results are seen within a few days of use.

Anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory


It will reduce swelling caused by inflammation and killing of the bad bacteria and viruses associated with a sore throat. Oregano essential oil can reduce swelling by 57%. Now that is an amazing result when you are in pain. Because if the swelling is reduced so are the symptoms.


Oregano essential oil is a very power oil and should not be consumed by itself. It needs to be diluted down before use.


How to Consume Oregano Essential oil


What you will need to make your Natural Sore Throat Remedy


50ml or 100ml clean empty dropper bottle.

Natural Carrier oil (grapeseed, olive oil)

Oregano essential oil

Diluting Oregano Essential oil



Oregano essential oil is a very power oil and should not be consumed by itself. It needs to be diluted down before use.


With a 50ml bottle you could start with 10 drops of oregano essential oil.

This can be added to a carrier of a natural oil like Olive Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Coconut Oil, to name a few.

Start with 10 drops and you can increase to 20 drops once your body gets use to it.

I personally mix my oregano essential oil with grapeseed oil and olive oil. Sometimes I mix both oils together before adding the oregano or I just add it to grapeseed oil.

I use grapeseed oil the most because it is a light oil and it packs its own punch when it comes to healing the body. I also cook with grapeseed oil and use it for many other things which I will share in an up and coming article. So watch this space.

How to use your remedy


Using your dropper bottle.

I would use one dropper and squeeze the oil under my tongue and hold it there for about 30 seconds. This will allow the oil to go straight into the bloodstream and start to work its magic.

You can also use squeeze one dropper directly towards the back of your throat and let it sit for a few seconds before swallowing.

My Final thoughts


Using Oregano essential oil to treat your sore throat naturally will be a game changer in your healing process.

I have been using it for over three years now and added it to my stable routine for general health. If I need a little extra boost, say for a sore throat, I would squeeze a dropper directly towards the back of my throat and I will do this say three times a day until my throat is healed. This normally take about three days.

I say about because to be honest I have not taken note of the heal time. I can say that it works quickly.
