Winter has arrived, bringing all that goes with a wet and heavy kapha season—occasional sneezing, sniffling, and respiratory discomfort. Kapha (the water and earth elements) naturally builds in our bodies as these elements build in nature. It is wisely noted in Ayurveda that kapha likes to linger in the lungs and respiratory tract.
Without proper care, the kapha grows and then drains into the gastrointestinal tract, where it can dampen the digestive fire (agni) and thereby affect all digestion and processing of food and thought. However, the most obvious discomforts that people may experience are those localized in the nose, throat, and lungs.
Throat Soother Herbal Spray is made to target the throat, where many people first note discomfort and feel that their immune system is being stressed. While it is a very versatile product that can be used for over-exertion of the voice, Throat Soother is superb for supporting the immune system and bringing natural relief and rejuvenation to the throat. It is in an alcohol-free base, making it a perfect product for just about anyone!
For this reason, we added powerful echinacea to our herbal spray formula to further support the immune system. Echinacea has been used in Native American medicine for over four-hundred years, and it has many uses, including support for the throat and respiratory tract.1 It is said that turmeric and echinacea act synergistically, and the two do a wonderful job working together to support the immune system in the throat area.2 The result is a stronger, more powerful, and more effective product for your throat.
Along with turmeric and echinacea, the legendary slippery elm and licorice provide a smooth and soothing coat to the throat. Ginger and clove warm the throat and melt away the built-up kapha that creates irritation. Menthol brings a refreshing coolness and helps ease any discomfort.
Just a couple spritzes each day can make a big difference. Pick up a bottle of Throat Soother Herbal Spray this winter season and keep it handy in your purse or schoolbag, or store it in your car so it’s always there when you need a little extra support.
